Yes the user is logged in.  The system knows who is tipping by their nickname 
and unique id system.  
  So if I put the update query in the else statement would this be the easy fix?
  I use something like a field called tipped in the table, so if they have 
tipped it goes to y and if never tipped it's blank.  I think it should show 
that in the query. Cant remember, I did the scripts 2 or 3 years ago.  Just 
want to tidy it up.

eg they are logged in, or you check with a database query or .... ?

You could do something like this:

// check for $_GET['tipid'] - if it's there, we're updating our tips.
// if it's not, then we're adding new tips.
if (isset($_GET['tipid'])) {
$query = "UPDATE " ......
$success_message = "Your tips have been updated";
} else {
$query = "INSERT INTO " .....
$success_message = "Your tips have been saved";

$result = mysql_query($query);
if ($result) {
echo $success_message;
} else {
echo "Problem!!
