Hi

I have the following function:

function add_item($item_name,$item_desc,$item_price,$item_man_id,$item_cat_id,$item_pix)
    {
    connect();
    if($item_pix == "")
    {
$sql = "INSERT INTO items (item_name,item_desc,item_price,item_man_id,item_cat_id) VALUES ('$item_name','$item_desc','$item_price','$item_man_id','$item_cat_id')";
    }
    else {
$sql = "INSERT INTO items (item_name,item_desc,item_price,item_pix,item_man_id,item_cat_id) VALUES ('$item_name','$item_desc','$item_price','$item_pix','$item_man_id','$item_cat_id')";
    }
    mysql_query($sql);
    return;
}

I am using the if statement because i want it so that if no picture is uploaded the entry is blank and the mysql database has a default entry of na.gif which is a "picture coming soon picture".

It works fine when i run in localy on MAMP, but if i run it on my web server it doesnt add the row.

You should be checking the mysql_query call for success and output the
error if it fails.  Something like:

   mysql_query($sql) or die('Insert failed: ' . mysql_error());

You'll now why it's failing then.  Make sure you have error reporting
enabled.

Is this a compatability error? or is there a better way to write this?

Oh no i havnt =[ i thought i had but no i now get this error:

Insert failed: 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 'Tactel', which is soft, breathable and quick drying and easy to care for.
' at line 1

Which makes no sense.

This is the function:

function editproduct($item_id, $item_name, $item_desc, $item_price, $item_pix, $item_man_id, $item_cat_id)
   {
   connect();
   if($item_pix == "")
   {
$sql = "UPDATE items SET item_name='$item_name', item_desc='$item_desc', item_price='$item_price', item_man_id='$item_man_id', item_cat_id='$item_cat_id' WHERE item_id=$item_id";
   }
   else
   {
$sql = "UPDATE items SET item_name='$item_name', item_desc='$item_desc', item_price='$item_price', item_pix='$item_pix', item_man_id='$item_man_id', item_cat_id='$item_cat_id' WHERE item_id=$item_id";
   }
   mysql_query($sql) or die('Insert failed: ' . mysql_error());
   return;
}

adn this is the process:

       $item_id = $_POST['item_id'];
       $item_name = $_POST['fname'];
       $item_desc = $_POST["fdesc"];
       $item_price = $_POST['fprice'];
       $item_man_id = $_POST['fman'];
       $item_cat_id = $_POST['fcat'];
       $item_pix = $_FILES['pix']['name'];
       $dest = 'images/items/'.$_FILES['pix']['name'];
       $temp_file = $_FILES['pix']['tmp_name'];
       move_uploaded_file($temp_file,$dest);
editproduct($item_id, $item_name, $item_desc, $item_price, $item_pix, $item_man_id, $item_cat_id);
       $message = 'Product Updated';
       header("Location:admin.php?message=$message");
