which database you are using

if it is sql then syntax must be

$sql="alter table `$tname` set `$old_field_name`= `$field_name1` , `$old_field_type`= `$dropdown` ";

ALTER TABLE `table_name` CHANGE `old_column` `new_colum` INT( 10 ) UNSIGNED NOT NULL DEFAULT '0'

You might have an issue with some of the variables you are trying to add into the query.  Echo the query to the screen to make sure and try it manually.
