do other variables you pass to the script get set? if not, do you have register_globals (or whatever it is) turned on? maybe use $_GET or $_POST instead?

Ok, but I have this as an example.... <select name="abc" size="1"> <option value="a" selected>A</option> <option value="b">B</option> <option value="c">C</option> <option value="d">D</option> </select> Are you saying that abc should be $abc? I not clear. I have for my sql as this... db_name = "xxxinks"; $table_name = "ssslinks"; $connection = @mysql_connect("mybox.com","anyusers",!@#$%) or die ("Couldn't connect"); $db = @mysql_select_db($db_name, $connection) or die ("Couldn't select database."); $sql = "INSERT INTO $table_name (abc, key_word, links, name) VALUES ('$abc', '$keywords', '$links', '$name')"; $result = @mysql_query($sql, $connection) or die("Couldn't execute query."); but I get that it can't do the query. So I am think it not passing abc... Chuck ----- Original Message ----- From: "Thalis A.
