Dear Experts,

          <?php if (isset($_GET["hdwmsg"]) && $_GET["hdwmsg"] == "invalid") echo chr(60)."font color=red".chr(62)."Please, enter the correct security code.".chr(60)."/font".chr(62);
              ?>
I want to end it if the security code is not ok.
What should I do?
I'm submiting the form on the same page..
I insert the data to my database and send an email after this code,
if I write security code wrong I receive this error message but it "Please, enter the correct security code." But it doesn't stop there.. it goes below and insert the data and sends email..
thank you

"it goes below and insert the data and sends email.."

Obviously you have an error in your logic!

You can use the php function die() to stop the script from executing any more instructions.

add an 'elseif' to your 'if' statement like this:
<?php 
if (isset($_GET["hdwmsg"]) && $_GET["hdwmsg"] == "invalid") {
     echo chr(60)."font color=red".chr(62)."Please, enter the correct security code.".chr(60)."/font".chr(62);
} elseif (isset($_GET["hdwmsg"]){

/* add the code here that inserts the data and sends the email. This will not be executed if the first if statement is satisfied. Solving your problem */

}              
?>
