parse error, unexpected T_STRING

Hi,

Thanks for Reading.

Same Old Error, Can't Figure Out WHY it's happening.

Here is the line:
$query2 = "UPDATE customers SET logincode='".$_SESSION['logincode']."' WHERE id='".$row['id']."'";

The remaining code (around and part of is below... You can find where Line 50 is by looking at the line above.)

Thank You VERY Much for Your Help!

I've see some errors. Let me see if you get more errors and i'll check.

Change this:
$query = "SELECT * FROM customers WHERE email='$e';

 if ($row[active]==1) {

$_SESSION[userid] = $row[id];
$_SESSION[access_level] = $row[level];
$_SESSION[logincode] = genrandcode(40);

to this:
$query = "SELECT * FROM customers WHERE email='$e'";

 if ($row['active']==1) {

$_SESSION['userid'] = $row['id'];
$_SESSION['access_level'] = $row['level'];
$_SESSION['logincode'] = genrandcode(40);

Hi ch2,

Thank You for Your help.

The $query part that is shown is the answer,
but the following code was generating errors previously:
if ($row['active']==1) {

$_SESSION['userid'] = $row['id'];
$_SESSION['access_level'] = $row['level'];
$_SESSION['logincode'] = genrandcode(40);

For some reason, the ONLY way that the script works is Without the single quotes as follows:
if ($row[active]==1) {

$_SESSION[userid] = $row[id];
$_SESSION[access_level] = $row[level];
$_SESSION[logincode] = genrandcode(40);

Thanks for Your input, though!

Have an Excellent Evening!

@ ch2: changing it may not have worked immediately, but it would open up it up to brand new errors.

Thanks for the grade.

Hi ch2,

Thanks for Your input.

"Changing only that won't work dasmaer. Well 4 minutes at the rubbish!"
"Why you accepted an answer without testing it before?"
Actually, I DID Test it and THAT was what was causing the error.

Once I added the Quote at the end, the page came up the way that it was Supposed to.

Thanks.

If the way it works is producing a lot of notices good luck with your buggy app.

Hi Mike,

Thanks for Your comment.

k... I changed it over to the way that YOU showed it
(the way it WAS Originally with the single quotes) and
it works... (No Errors any more...)

Either way, it was the Quote at the end of the line that You
and dasmaer provided before that was causing all of the errors.
