SecurityAssist - Email Password - MySQL Error

SecurityAssist - Email Password - MySQL Error

I'm getting a MySQL error when users try to use the "Email Password" page on a site I set-up using the SecurityAssist wizard to retrieve their unencrypted password from the database. The other pages (login, logout, profile) seem to work fine. I would greatly appreciate any specific suggestions on how to adjust the code or the database.

The error message that appears in the browser after a user enters an email address (matching one in the database) and hits send:

"You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '' at line 1"

Below is the relevant code (with generic replacements for site-specific identifiers). The site is hosted on (Linux, MySQL 5.0, PHP 5.2).

Thanks in advance,


<?php require_once('../Connections/connSAMPLE1.php');?>
<?php require_once( "../WA_SecurityAssist/Helper_PHP.php" ); ?>
function WA_SecurityAssist_Email_1_SendMail($WA_Auth_Parameter){
$WA_MailObject = WA_SecurityAssist_Definition("","25","","","","");
$WA_MailObject = WA_SecurityAssist_SendMail($WA_MailObject,"","","",$WA_Auth_Parameter["toAddress"],"",$WA_Auth_Parameter["fromAddress"],$WA_Auth_Parameter["subject"],$WA_Auth_Parameter["mailBody"]);
$WA_MailObject = null;
}// WA_SecurityAssist_Email_1_SendMail
//WA SecurityAssist Email object="Mail for Linux"
$WA_Auth_Parameter = array(
"connection" => $connSAMPLE1,
"database" => $database_connSAMPLE1,
"tableName" => "Equipment",
"filterColumn" => "Email_Address",
"columnValue" => "".((isset($_POST["emailAddress"]))?$_POST["emailAddress"]:"") ."",
