Great. That is perfect. The last minor issue is that the timestamp
is a datetime column, and needs to be such since I don't want this to change
when the record is updated. This is correct, right? If the column were a
timestamp data type, the value would change every time the record is
updated? I am trying:
$query = "INSERT INTO accounts (`id-sys`, rtime) VALUES('".$accnts."',
This is entering the array element properly, but not the time. The
datetime field is coming up with all zeroes.

Try putting backtics (not single quotes) around the column name.
$query = "INSERT INTO accounts (`id-sys`) VALUES ('".$accnts."')";
if that don't work, you'll have to rename the column.
