duplicate entry

please help i have been trying to figure this out for two days now, i have tried all forum suggestions nothing seems to help.

Its basic form that submits a category to database, i am trying to make it were it checks before inserting to see if there is a duplicate.

here is my code:

if (!function_exists("GetSQLValueString")) {
function GetSQLValueString($theValue, $theType, $theDefinedValue = "", $theNotDefinedValue = "")
if (PHP_VERSION < 6) {
$theValue = get_magic_quotes_gpc() ? stripslashes($theValue) : $theValue;

$theValue = function_exists("mysql_real_escape_string") ? mysql_real_escape_string($theValue) : mysql_escape_string($theValue);

switch ($theType) {
case "text":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
case "long":
case "int":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? intval($theValue) : "NULL";
case "double":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? doubleval($theValue) : "NULL";
case "date":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
case "defined":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? $theDefinedValue : $theNotDefinedValue;
return $theValue;
$colname_rsCat = "-1";
if (isset($_POST['CategoryName'])) {
$colname_rsCat = (get_magic_quotes_gpc()) ? $_POST['CategoryName'] : addslashes($_POST['CategoryName']);
mysql_select_db($database_myCaliDB, $myCaliDB);
$query_rsCat = sprintf("SELECT CategoryName FROM productcategories WHERE CategoryName = %s", GetSQLValueString($colname_rsCat, "text"));
$rsCat = mysql_query($query_rsCat, $myCaliDB) or die(mysql_error());
$row_rsCat = mysql_fetch_assoc($rsCat);
$totalRows_rsCat = mysql_num_rows($rsCat);
$WAFV_Redirect = "optiongroups_Delete.php";
$_SESSION['WAVT_productcategoriesInsertvalidate_626_Errors'] = "";
if ($WAFV_Redirect == "") {
$WAFV_Redirect = $_SERVER["PHP_SELF"];
$WAFV_Errors = "";
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateNM($totalRows_rsCat . "",-1,0,"",",.",true,1);

if ($WAFV_Errors != "") {
// WA Application Builder Insert
if ($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST") // Trigger
$WA_connection = $myCaliDB;
$WA_table = "productcategories";
$WA_sessionName = "WADA_Insert_productcategories";
$WA_redirectURL = "storedashboard.php?CategoryName=".((isset($_POST["CategoryName"]))?$_POST["CategoryName"]:"") ."";
if (function_exists("rel2abs")) $WA_redirectURL = $WA_redirectURL?rel2abs($WA_redirectURL,dirname(__FILE__)):"";
$WA_keepQueryString = false;
$WA_indexField = "CategoryID";
$WA_fieldNamesStr = "CategoryName";
$WA_fieldValuesStr = "".((isset($_POST["CategoryName"]))?$_POST["CategoryName"]:"") ."";
$WA_columnTypesStr = "',none,''";
$WA_fieldNames = explode("|", $WA_fieldNamesStr);
$WA_fieldValues = explode("|", $WA_fieldValuesStr);
$WA_columns = explode("|", $WA_columnTypesStr);
$WA_connectionDB = $database_myCaliDB;
mysql_select_db($WA_connectionDB, $WA_connection);
if (!session_id()) session_start();
$insertParamsObj = WA_AB_generateInsertParams($WA_fieldNames, $WA_columns, $WA_fieldValues, -1);
$WA_Sql = "INSERT INTO `" . $WA_table . "` (" . $insertParamsObj->WA_tableValues . ") VALUES (" . $insertParamsObj->WA_dbValues . ")";
$MM_editCmd = mysql_query($WA_Sql, $WA_connection) or die(mysql_error());
$_SESSION[$WA_sessionName] = mysql_insert_id();
if ($WA_redirectURL != "") {
if ($WA_keepQueryString && $WA_redirectURL != "" && isset($_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]) && $_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"] !== "" && sizeof($_POST) > 0) {
$WA_redirectURL .= ((strpos($WA_redirectURL, '?') === false)?"?":"&").$_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"];
header("Location: ".$WA_redirectURL);
