PHP/MYSQL Insert Issue

4 replies
I have a form I'm building where I want users to submit some information via an INPUT TYPE="TEXT" box.

The db field is set to VARCHAR(16).

My problem is that only numbers seem to work. If I use letters (or any other characters) the submission does not work. I do not get any errors, but the data just doesn't appear in the database.


45 - works
try35 - does not work
try - does not work
try-45 - does not work

I've been trying to figure this out for a while now. I've changed the db field to TEXT, and to BLOB, but nothing worked.

Any suggestions?

    What are your complete FIELD settings in the db for the offending field?

    What's the server-side code that processes the form? Perhaps the field is checked for integers?

    lets see the processing code, we'll be in a better position to help out.

    do you put the data within single quotes when doing the insert?

    Thanks guys. The problem was that I wasn't using single quotes when doing the INSERT.

    I appreciate your responses...
