Try this:


while($numbOpt > 0){
$Opt = "$opt".$numbOpt;
$query = "insert into PollOptions('id','Qnumb','option') values ('','$Qid','$Opt')";
mysql_query($query);            
$numbOpt--;
}

you just reposted my code that was cleaned up.

I figured it out  myself

I will post the code for everyone else:

            foreach($_POST as $key => $value)
            {
               if (strpos($key, "opt") === false) {
               }else{
                  $query = "insert into PollOptions"
                  ." ( `id` , `Qnumb` , `option` ) values "
                  ."('','$Qid','$value')";
                  mysql_query($query);                
               }
            }

i think you could have also used

$Opt = "$opt".$numbOpt;

echo $Opt.'='.$$Opt;
