We use the structure we've provided you with. That is, your database is (should be) the same as mine. So I don't need the structure. If I run your code (I just need to change your database login and password to fit mine) then all should work.

Hi Derya

what i normally do, is put the username, pw etc into an external file called something like: conf.inc.php

this way i know its a configuration file, that is only to be used as an include...

this file looks something like this:

$passwd = 'xYzp7';
$username = 'superg';
$dbname = 'project';
$host = 'localhost';

the awesome part about doing it this way is if i had say 7 different forms that i run sql on, i would only need to change the database name in one place if for some reason the databases name changed...

what i would do from here is include this on the page that i do my sql queries on:

include_once('conf.inc.php'winking smiley;

if this file is not in the same folder as the file with the sql statement in it, then i would have to specify the path to the location of the file.

once the file has been included, the variables can be used straight in my code:

$conn = mysql_connect($host, $username, $passwd);

i really hope this helps
