Sorry I've been blowing up this forum lately. I have a problem that I have yet to be able to solve looking back on this site or anywhere else around the web.
Here is my code

$connection = mysql_connect("localhost","admin","admin"); //connection variable for later use
if (!$connection)
	die('Could not connect to the database. ' . mysql_error()); //error for no connection
mysql_select_db("supplysource",$connection);//select db
//set edit rep form variables
$repid = $_POST['repID'];
$repnamelast = $_POST['repNameLast'];
$repnamefirst = $_POST['repNameFirst'];
$repphone = $_POST['repPhone'];
$repemail = $_POST['repEmail'];
//create function for editing rep info
function edituser($repnamelast, $repnamefirst, $repphone, $repemail)
	$updaterep = "UPDATE salesrep SET repNameLast='$repnamelast', repNameFirst='$repnamefirst', repPhone='$repphone', repEmail='$repemail' WHERE repID='$repid'";
	mysql_query($updaterep) or die(mysql_error());
	$_SESSION['editrep'] = 3;//change editrep variable to 3 for adminrepsadmin.php proper handling
//check for blank form fields
if(empty($repnamefirst) || empty($repnamelast) || empty($repphone) || empty($repemail))
	$_SESSION['editrep'] = 4;
//if all error checking return ture, run edituser funciton and return to adminrepsadmin.php
	edituser($repnamelast, $repnamefirst, $repphone, $repemail);

My problem is the "UPDATE salesrep..." query. It will not update the database. The code runs and gives me my "Rep changed!" output saying that it has been done, and there are no errors. I've echoed all my variables and they are being set properly. I have even echoed the entire UPDATE query, and pasted it into myphpadmin and it updated the way it was supposed to. So somehow the query isn't being delivered properly. Any ideas?

EDIT: Sorry again, but I figured it out. Its amazing how when you ask for help, set the project down for an hour and come back you figure it out. I wasn't calling the $repid in the function "edituser" when I added it in, works like a charm. Thanks again if you did look at it. =)

No need to be sorry about asking for help. That is why the forum is here :thumbsup:
