Hey dude,
Yeah, I seem to have a talent for pissing people of unintentally, and Julie
seemed to have gotten more than a little pissed at me.
Anyway, the reason I didnt specify the type was that I was under the
impression that if you have a auto_increment it has to be an integer...I
mean you cant have a text....and if you have a float/double like 2.23 what
will it increment to? 2.24 or 3.23? just did not think of date, time.....
Guess she just had a bad day and I was the final straw.......:)

I kinda understood what you mean but not totally so am sending you the
actual code used below.....

$database["server"] = "localhost";
$database["user"] = "ryan1";
$database["password"] = "ryan777";
$database["database"] = "ryan";

if(!$connect = @mysql_connect($database["server"],
{print("Problem connecting, failed to connect to:" . $database["server"]);}

$database["sql"] = "insert into Ref_Users

if (mysql_query($database["sql"]))
{print("<p>PROBLEM, Could not create account...ERROR: " . mysql_error() .

What do you think? good, bad or ugly?
Give me your comments/suggestions and if possible add the mysql_insert_id in
the correct place and comment it so that I will know....
