Tim's right about NULL. You can either specify what exactly are the fields of the row you want to update/insert using SET before VALUE (seek the manual at www.mysql.com for more info) or you can just write NULL (without any quotes) where the fields are automatic like *auto_increment* or like *timestamp*. I would suggest that you read more about syntax before you go on, and to place this kind of questions to the PHP Database list to get proper help. It is also a good idea for you to subscribe to the MySQL lists which are very crowded with MySQL gurus.
