hi, if the column type of id is varchar or char, u need to put '' around id.
ur query should look like
mysql_query("DELETE FROM open_trades WHERE id= '".$id."'");
Note that your can leave any space between " and '
if u do have a space between them, ur query will look like
mysql_query("DELETE FROM open_trades WHERE id= ' valueofID'");
instead of
mysql_query("DELETE FROM open_trades WHERE id= 'valueofID'");
and the first query will not return any result becuase of that space

Hello, I have a simple script to retrieve and then delete a selected script, but it 
does not work.

When I hit the button I get:
You have an error in your SQL syntax. Check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL 
server version for the right syntax to use near 'id' at line 11064"

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks
