php form post to database

I'm updating a database from form post via php. However, I'm getting a error when 0 (aka. zero) is the value, and its being dropped from the value being posted to the database. Is this a result of my table formatting in mysql?

Chris WongCommented:
use the isset() instead
Loganathan NatarajanLAMP DeveloperCommented:
what is the database type which you insert?
Can we see the code? Is the code for getting the value like this:
$fieldOne = addslashes($_POST['fieldName']);

and the mysql query:
mysql_query("UPDATE table_name SET some_column = '$fieldOne' WHERE id = 'id_number'");

I hope this will solve the problem

I'm still learning mysql, the query is correct. Fixed the issue though, the issue was that field was int not varchar.  Now that I have switched, not problems with updating. Thanks for the hint logudotcom.

Converted column from int to varchar and it worked
