Does anyone see anything I might be missing as to why this won't work?

From the file calling the function:


$round = "Round 1";
$region = "East";

include "check.php";
isAuthorized($_COOKIE['username'], $_COOKIE['password']);

include "checkEntry.php";
check4Entry($username, $round, $region);


From checkEntry.php:


function check4Entry($name, $reg, $rnd) {

$connection = mysql_connect("localhost", "root") or die(mysql_error());

$db = mysql_select_db("marchmadness", $connection) or die(mysql_error())

$checking = "SELECT * FROM pick WHERE userID = \"$uname\" AND round = \"$rnd\" AND region = \"$reg\"";

$result = mysql_query($checking, $connection) or die(mysql_error());

$numRows = mysql_num_rows($result) or die(mysql_error());

if ($numRows > 0) {
print("<html><head><link rel=\"stylesheet\" type=\"text/css\" href=\"bbb.css\"></head><body><center><table class=\"outTbl\"><tr><th align=\"center\" class=\"outTh\"> Oops! There are already selections made for $uname in $reg - $rnd. </th></tr> <tr><td>$uname, if you'd like to modify your selections, please click <a href=\"modifyEntry.php\">here</a>.</td></tr></table></center></body></html>");






When I submit the form, I get a blank screen as a result. There aren't any errors ouput to the screen. I've compared this with another function I've created, and there doesn't appear to be anything different. The latter works.

BTW, I bet you'll never guess what this is for...;-)

Thanks for your help!
