The improperly encoded message has resolved itself following a switch off and switch back on over the weekend, however the server configuration errors remain although I think I have spotted a pattern.

If you go here and click the Add News button:

You'll get a page with no error message at the foot and you can add a news item (which takes you through to the newspreview.php page).

When you get to newspreview.php it queries our database using the Session ID created by the "Save id in session as:" in the Insert Record behaviour on the previous page and it displays the correct record from the database so that part of it is working.

I have a confirm button on newspreview.php which is a WebAssist MySQLi Update Record behaviour that turns a tinyint field from 1 (True) to 2 (False) on submit. It is when you click this button that the server errors appear and it doesn't write to database.


1) What should the "Lookup value" be in the General tab of the WebAssist MySQLi Update Record behaviour dialog? I have tried setting it to both the ID field from the recordset on the page and also a hidden form field which is populated by the ID field from the recordset. Neither work

2) In the Update Record behaviour I am only updating the True/False field - should I, even though it's the primary key field, be updating the primary fey field in the database?

I think this error is related to the "Save id in session as:" feature or the WebAssist MySQLi Update Record behaviour. I'm not using any folder with a dollar sign in it as the session save path, as you describe, I am simply using the WebAssist MySQLi Update Record behaviour.

If it is choosing to use a dollar sign somewhere then my host isn't going to be able to help and, indeed, they have already responded with "this is a scripting issue".

Hoping you can help. Thank you.

EDIT: Sometimes I get this error depending on if I choose the hidden form field or the recordset ID field as the Lookup value for the Update record behaviours;

Notice: Undefined variable: rsNEWNEWS in \\nas44ent\domains\n\\user\htdocs\templates\addnewsPHP\admin\newspreview.php on line 10
