I made that modification and now it doesn't update the DB at all...

$db = @mysql_select_db($dbname, $connection) or die("Couldn't Select

$sql = "UPDATE $table1 SET last_access_date=$rec2day WHERE
username='$dealer_number' AND password='$password'";

$result = @mysql_query($sql,$connection) or die("Couldn't Execute Query.");
