I sent a string with GET from an HTML form page to a separate PHP file. The player-id came accross correctly(by looking at the URL). When I want to use its values to update the record in the table, it does not complain, but the the update is ignored. I also picked up, by echoeing the player-id that it add a "1" to the value. For example player_id = 4 came across via the URL but display player_id = 41 when the script runs. Any suggestions?
