Thank you, that was Pine doing some nice formatting tricks of it's own.

I see the error there and removed the global, I am moving from ASP 
functions to PHP functions and still learning.  I misunderstood the global 
statement considering that I am passing the userID to the function.  

What I am also discovering is I have to use die; to halt execution for 
certain things.  An example, I check to see if a user is still active in 
the system, if they are not I use a header to redirect them to a page that 
tells them they are inactive.  

if ($userActive == 0){
        header ('Location: notice.php');

As is it does not work until I do this:

if ($userActive == 0){
        header ('Location: notice.php');
