If you're talking about the PHP page itself, try $PHP_SELF. If you want to know what page sent the form data to the PHP page, try $HTTP_REFER. Be careful, though, as not every browser sends the referring page along with a request, leaving $HTTP_REFER empty. J Kevin P wrote: Hi all I

XML is pretty standardized, but the implementation of it in various web browsers isn't. I wouldn't consider XML all that comparable to HTML. They don't serve the same purpose. XML is generally used to order and describe data (metadata, basically), and although HTML serves roughly the same

Just out of curiosity, are you going to be posting every time you have a syntax error? As for this error, it's likely a combination of: 1. not having either single or double quotation marks around the string literal; or 2. If that line isn't the last line in a php block, it needs a

Your code is [mostly] fine, except for two things: 1. Although you connected to your database with mysql_connect() and mysql_select_db(), you didn't do anything with connection. Try using mysql_query() to send a query to the db, i.e. mysql_query($sql). 2. Your SQL is a bit out of
