Linking SQL database with uploaded image thru DigitalFilePro

Linking SQL database with uploaded image thru DigitalFilePro

I'm having some trouble "pushing" the dynamically created file name of uploaded images generated by the Digital File Pro (DFP) PHP code into the appropriate column in the MySQL database I've created. I'm using DFP independently, not with DataAssist (although I have access to this). I'd prefer not to use DataAssist in this case, since I've already built my record insertion structure and don't really want to make changes if I don't have to - I believe the trouble I'm having is merely finding out what information DFP is generating, where in the code it's being generated, and how I can send that info to the column in the MySQL database.

The MySQL column is called "images". The input type is "text". I've created a File Field in DW4, linked it to the DFP, included all my specifics, etc., and am getting the error "Column "images" cannot be null". My database is designed not to accept an empty field in this column, so the error message is doing its job. However, I want to be able to send the dynamically created name of the image file to the MySQL "images" column, with the goal of retrieving that information in myriad search results. In my webpage code, I'm seeing that the statements relating to the insertion of data into the MySQL database reference the ID, which is called "images", to match the dbase column name. However, no value is being represented there, which is what I believe should be passed to the dbase column. I've tried just about every possible combination of naming structures, (including PHP code to echo, post or get info from the DFP PHP code), in the "Values" column, and continue to get the same results. Removing the image upload functionality from the page allows all other dbase columns to populate properly, which tells me that I'm connecting successfully to the dbase.

The image upload folder called "property images" is in place, in case that was a question.

I'm adding the applicable page code below. If anyone can help, I've spent more sleepless nights than I care to admit trying to fix this. I would deeply appreciate any help.

Page code:
<?php require_once('Connections/pendragon.php'); ?>
<?php require_once("WA_DigitalFilePro/HelperPHP.php"); ?>
<?php 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";
