Hi Barry,
First of all,
$query_id = mysql_query("INSERT INTO...);  is wrong. That line will just
assign the resultset of the whatever mysql_query() function returns to the
variable $query_id .. Get rid of $query_id and just have mysql_query(INSERt
INTO ....); See: http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.mysql-query.php  for
Second of all, in your INSERT INTO query you are trying to insert the value
of a variable called $music_artist.id which doesn't exist anywhere. I think
you meant to insert $artist_name instead???

I have the following to pages( just testing them at the moment ):
<? mysql_connect("host","xxxx","xxxx");
echo "<form name='add_album' method='post' action='test-album-add.php'>";
    $getlist = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM music_artist ORDER BY
artist_name ASC");
echo " Artist Name : <select name=\"artist_name\">\n";
while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($getlist)) {
echo '<option value="'.$row["id"].'">'.$row["artist_name"]."</option>\n";
echo " </select>\n";
echo "<br>Album Name : <input type='text' name='album' value='$album'>";
echo "<input type='submit' name='Submit' value='Submit'>";
echo "</form>";



      mysql_connect( "host", "xxxx", "xxxx" );
      mysql_select_db( "xoops" );

      $query_id = mysql_query("INSERT INTO music_album VALUES
(NULL, '$music_artist.id' ,'$album' ,NULL ,NULL)");
          echo " $artist_name and $album has been added to the

What I am trying to do is insert the id of the artist they selected in
the first page into a second table. At the moment all I get is 0
inserted instead of the artist id from page 1.

Could someone please point out what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.
