Hi there. I have a couple of files meant to update a single field of a mysql table. It should work like so: a user correctly inputs an existing id field, plus a date which is new. The sql statement finds the entry belonging to the id field and updates the date. The code as it stands does not throw an sql error, but it also doesn’t work. Eventually, I’d also like to write a wrapper, or escape the strings, to help protect from cross-site scripting/injections. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Ist the input form in a file called getdate.php:
And then the sql update in the file called nidprod.php:
$date = trim($_POST['date']); $model = trim($_POST['model']); $sql['result'] = "UPDATE `mydatabase`.`mytable` SET `mydatecolumn` = ".$date." WHERE 'mytable'.'myidcolumn' = ".$model.""; $results = mysql_query($query);
if ($results = true)
Thanks for reading.
