I don't get it.

I placed the server file name code into a hidden input named "petImage". but it returns a "null" error.

here is my code:

<?php require_once('Connections/petriever.php'); ?>
<?php require_once("WA_DigitalFilePro/HelperPHP.php"); ?>
if (!function_exists("GetSQLValueString")) {
function GetSQLValueString($theValue, $theType, $theDefinedValue = "", $theNotDefinedValue = "")
$theValue = get_magic_quotes_gpc() ? stripslashes($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;

$editFormAction = $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];
if (isset($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'])) {
$editFormAction .= "?" . htmlentities($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING']);

if ((isset($_POST["MM_insert"])) && ($_POST["MM_insert"] == "form1")) {
$insertSQL = sprintf("INSERT INTO pets (petID, ownerID, petName, petType, petImage, gender, breed, color1, color2) VALUES (%s, %s, %s, %s, %s, %s, %s, %s, %s)",
GetSQLValueString($_POST['petID'], "text"),
GetSQLValueString($_POST['ownerID'], "int"),
GetSQLValueString($_POST['petName'], "text"),
GetSQLValueString($_POST['petType'], "text"),
GetSQLValueString($_POST['petImage'], "text"),
GetSQLValueString($_POST['gender'], "text"),
GetSQLValueString($_POST['breed'], "text"),
GetSQLValueString($_POST['color1'], "text"),
GetSQLValueString($_POST['color2'], "text"));

mysql_select_db($database_petriever, $petriever);
$Result1 = mysql_query($insertSQL, $petriever) or die(mysql_error());

$insertGoTo = "owner.php" ;
if (isset($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'])) {
$insertGoTo .= (strpos($insertGoTo, '?')) ? "&" : "?";
$insertGoTo .= $_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'];
header(sprintf("Location: %s", $insertGoTo));

$vrOwnerID_rsOwner = "-1";
if (isset($_SESSION['MM_Username'])) {
$vrOwnerID_rsOwner = $_SESSION['MM_Username'];
$vrOwnerID_rsOwner = "-1";
if (isset($_SESSION['MM_Username'])) {
$vrOwnerID_rsOwner = (get_magic_quotes_gpc()) ? $_SESSION['MM_Username'] : addslashes($_SESSION['MM_Username']);
mysql_select_db($database_petriever, $petriever);
$query_rsOwner = sprintf("SELECT owners.ownerID, owners.firstName FROM owners WHERE", GetSQLValueString($vrOwnerID_rsOwner, "text"));
$rsOwner = mysql_query($query_rsOwner, $petriever) or die(mysql_error());
$row_rsOwner = mysql_fetch_assoc($rsOwner);
$totalRows_rsOwner = mysql_num_rows($rsOwner);?>
// WA_UploadResult1 Params Start
$WA_UploadResult1_Params = array();
