hello. i am confused as to why this statement is not including the file 'formvars.php' and always going to 'transform.php' no matter what way round i put it. Var_dump shows me that the string is being passed "Vehicle Transport" which is correct but if another string say "hello" is passed it should go to 'formvars.php'. any help gratefully received. many thanks
<?php  
if (empty($prez)) { echo $error_job; } 
elseif (isset($_POST['Intext'])=="Vehicle Transport") 
{ echo $stage2_msg; include 'transform.php'; } 
else {  echo $stage2_msg; include 'formvars.php'; }
 ?>

try like this:


<?php  
if (empty($prez)) { echo $error_job; } 
elseif (isset($_POST['Intext']) && $_POST['Intext'] =="Vehicle Transport") 
{ echo $stage2_msg; include 'transform.php'; } 
else {  echo $stage2_msg; include 'formvars.php'; }
?>

Because your "elseif" statement ist wrong.
It should be rather something like piece of code below.
<?php  
if ( empty($prez) )
{
	echo $error_job;
}
elseif ( isset($_POST['Intext']) && $_POST['Intext'] == "Vehicle Transport" )
{
	echo $stage2_msg;
	include "transform.php";
} 
else
{
	echo $stage2_msg;
	include "formvars.php";
}
?>
