Well first, I don't know if you copied and pasted directly from your file,
but you're building your query in the variable $sql AFTER you run the query:

  mysql_query($sql) or die(msql_error());
  $sql = "Insert into table ('$field1','$field2',....,'$field61')";

It should be:

  $sql = "Insert into table ('$field1','$field2',....,'$field61')";
  mysql_query($sql) or die(msql_error());

However, you should also use the coding practice of:

  $sql = "INSERT INTO table SET
NameOfField1='ValueOfField2',Field2='Value',Field3='Value', etc....;"

It's a little easier to read and understand. Note that you don't really have
to do anything special to be able to separate the query onto multiple lines:

  $sql = "INSERT INTO

  mysql_query($sql) or die(msql_error());

... will work fine. No need for special characters - PHP will recognize
values and strings that are on multiple lines AS LONG AS the value starts
and ends with quotes (and the semicolon at the end).

Hi, thanks for the follow up.

I included the following command in the line...

mysql_query($sql) or die(msql_error());
$sql = "Insert into table ('$field1','$field2',....,'$field61')";

The message returned was, "Query was empty"

I am suspect of the 61 fields.  The line travels far out to the right.

Is there a way to properly code the line so it does not go so far to
the right.

Otherwise, no other report errors.
