Need help storing variable in table

Need help storing variable in table


With my WADA Insert, Update & WASA Profile pages I would like to store a field in the database based on a field in the form.

From the two digit State entered on the form I would like a Region field in the database table updated. Might I be able to select this Region from a short list of arrays such as…


= array('CT''DE''DC''ME''MD''MA''NH''NJ''NY''PA''RI''VT''QC''NL''PE''NS''NB');
$southern = array('AL''FL''GA''LA''MS''NC''SC''VA''WV');
$central = array('IL''IN''KY''MI''OH''TN''WI''ON');
$great_plains = array('AR''CO''IA''KS''MN''MO''MT''NE''NM''ND''OK''SD''TX''WY''MB''SK''NT');
$western = array('AK''AZ''CA''HI''ID''NV''OR''UT''WA''AB''BC''YT');
if (
$region 'Eastern';
elseif (
$region 'Southern';
elseif (
$region 'Central';
elseif (
$region 'Great Plains';
elseif (
$region 'Western';
$region 'International';

Does the above code look correct/usable?

But now I don&#8217;t know how to get my variable $region stored into the table field labeled Region.

Your help would be appreciated

Note: this question is similiar to my post post #118796 however I dodn't have the skills to adapt the suggested tutorial.
