hai all,

my intention is to trap mysql_errno while I try to insert data in to mysql. the coding is as below

$addStmt = //sql query for insert statements

if(!($val= mysql_query($addStmt)) && (mysql_errno()=1062)){
 $addStmt1="update $tableName3 set $tableName3.dop_dbb
           =$value4";
 mysql_query($addStmt1) or die(mysql_error());
}//if statement is to trap for duplicate key in db

elseif(!($val= mysql_query($addStmt))){mysql_query($addStmt1);
         echo mysql_error();
}// this if statement is to trap other errors
else{
mysql_query($addStmt) or die (mysql_error());
echo "success";
}// this is for inserting in to db if other if clauses r turns false.

here I my problem is I get an error msg in my first if statement.

is anything wrong with my coding.

please let me know.
thanks

hai all,

thanks for locating my error.(mistake)

I have addtional query pertaining to above code.
as I mentioned earlier.
1) first if to trap mysql_errno()=1062
2) 2nd if is to check for any other errors other than above condition
3) 3rd is if nothing happens for above 2 condition just insert the values in to db instead of updating.

can anyone tell me the way I check my 2nd & 3rd condition is correct or is there any better way of putting my conditions.

thanks

Try this

$addStmt = //sql query for insert statements
$val=mysql_query($addStmt);
if(!($val) && mysql_errno()==1062){

To trap 1062 errors AND if other error display error and exit do but if NO errors enter information do:

$addStmt = //sql query for insert statements

if(!($val=mysql_query($addStmt)))
{
   //Check if error is 1062
   if(mysql_errno() == 1062)
   {
     trap error
   }
   else //If error but not 1062 display error and terminate
   {
     echo mysql_error();
     exit;
   }
}

One more thing, you do not need to store an insert in a variable so the original if can be:

if(!(mysql_query($addStmt)))
{
