Assistance needed for the following error:

Your request has been sent.
There was an error in your request. Please contact support and reference: 1064

Code is snipped.

The following script is deleting two records from two tables that are relationshiped by their id and key.

<?php
session_start();
if(!isset($_SESSION["sessioname"])){
header("location: http://www.site.com/beta/login2.html");
}else{
////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////MY PROTECTED CONTENT
include 'header.php';
require_once "dbconnection.php";
 
$id = ($_GET['id']);
 
$sql = "DELETE FROM vendor WHERE id= '$id'";
$sql2 = "DELETE FROM scope WHERE key= '$id'";
 
$res = mysql_query($sql,$mysql);
$res2 = mysql_query($sql2,$mysql);
$link="<a href=\"http://www.site.com/beta/home.php\">Return</a>";
 
 
//deleting vendor from database
if ($res === TRUE) {
            echo "<br/>";
			echo "Your request has been sent.<br/>";
			
			} else {
            printf("There was an error in your request. Please contact support and reference: %s\n", mysql_errno($mysql));
      }
	  
//deleting scope from database
if ($res2 === TRUE) {
            echo "<br/>";
			echo "Your request has been sent.<br/>";
			
			} else {
            printf("There was an error in your request. Please contact support and reference: %s\n", mysql_errno($mysql));
      }
     
}?>

Regarding

if ($res === TRUE) {

it should be if ($res == TRUE) (

It should only be two equal signs

Try this:

$sql = "DELETE FROM `vendor` WHERE `id`= '$id'";
$sql2 = "DELETE FROM `scope` WHERE `key`= '$id'";

You get this error when you use reserved words from MySQL. I suspect it would be the "key" word in this case. To make sure you never get this problem again use the backtick character as in the code above.

$sql = "DELETE FROM vendor WHERE id=$id"
$sq2l = "DELETE FROM scope WHERE key=$id"

 - This should work fine - i use the same in my scripts and it deletes the record without a problem
