Syntax Error - Update Error

Syntax Error - Update Error


I have 2 error occurances:

1. In the attached "pivisitors_Multi_Insert.php" file the following error is displayed upon Submit:
"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"

I have checked (), but can't seem to find the error.

2. In the attached "pivisitors_Update.php" form, the update entered is updating all entries in the table. (i.e. If "John" is entered in the "First Name" field, all First Names in the table change to "John"). The same happens for all fields except the email field.

Thanks for your assistance.

I'm not sure which server behavior is giving you this error on your insert page because you have both a single insert and multi insert that are going into the same table with the same trigger. You should remove the single insert if you are planning on doing a multiple insert. Once you have done that you should run a test of inserting a single record to see if you get the error with only the multi insert.

On your update page it seems that your where clause is causing the multiple records to be updated. How have you configured this update server behavior? To see why it is doing this you can print out the update query. Attached is a copy of the page with the updated code to print out the query, load it and test it to see what you get.
