I have been writing my queries like this.......

$link = mysql_connect ($host, $username, $password);
$query = "insert into $table ('joe', 15)";
if ( mysql_db_query($dbname, $query, $link))            {       }

But then I was reading that I should use mysl_query instead of mysql_db_query.  
But I was having a problem with where do i put the $dbname.

When I used:

mysql_query ($dbname, $query, $link)

I got an error message saying i had too many arguments.  So I changed it to:

mysql_query ($query, $link)

I then got an error message saying it didn't know what database I was 
connected to.  I finally got around the problem by including the database 
name in the query, like so:

$query = "insert into $dbname.$table ('joe', 15)";

I shouldn't have to say, but this is a simplified example.  I didn't want to 
include all the fields, tables, values that the true example has.  The 
question is, am I doing this right?  Do I have no choice but to retype the 
$dbname all over the place if I want to use "mysql_query"?

Thank in advance for any help.
