It isn't sending to MySql, we use FileMaker Pro 9. A new record did not get 
made in the d'base... the confirmation email went out, but wherever info was 
supposed to kick back from the d'base (ie. Order number), it showed an 
"undefined variable" error.

Was the order received, but the text was shorter than expected?
Or was the order not "received" at all?

Check your mysql query log.  It may show failed queries where bad characters 
made the query fail, perhaps using ' or "?
Use mysql_real_escape_string.
