I am trying to pass variable information from a form to mysql.
The problem is that the database increments the index count but no data is getting to the variable in the php insert page.
for example in html ..<input type = "text" method = "post">
on the php side $name = $_post['name'];
the information does not get from form to php? I know this is light on the information but I have tried many examples from web and does not work. I know this is something incrediably simple and obvious. I am using wanpserver , current download and windows xp pro.

May be you need to write $_POST['name'] instead of $_post['name']...

Thank you for your help. Your hint sent me on the right direction. It solved my problem. I went back and upper cased all the words like TYPE, POST, REQUEST ect.

and used POST in the form and REQUEST in the formhandler page.

Thanks again
