Doug, read my e-mail again, specifically the second and third paragraphs about 
what *version* of MySQL my host's server is using, then look at the manual 
entry again (specifically the first line you quoted).
The _mysql manual_ says... "If you specify the ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE clause 
(new in MySQL 4.1.0)" thus it only works in 4.1.0 and later, and my host is 
running MySQL 3.23.58 (not 3.25.58 as I previously said, not that it makes much 
odds!). Anyhoo thanks for giving it a shot, RBR (read before replying) in 
future, there's a good chap ;o)

Bastien, thanks sometimes one needs a new perspectiuve on these things, I was 
stuck in my mysql_query brackets. Putting mind to matter using your tips it 
would actually be fairly simple to do that. Again thank you for providing an 
exit() to my stuck loop ;o)
