I have a script that some of you have been helping me with.  Thank you in advance.  Everything about this code works fine, but the update messages.  If a row is updated it prints the message.  But if the Row that is being updated is empty in the database, it does not report.  I want the message to print even if it entered new info into a row that was previously empty.

<?php 
// CONNECT AND SELECT THE DATA BASE
set_error_handler ('oops'); 

// custom error handler 
function oops($type, $msg, $file, $line, $context) { 
	switch ($type) { 
// notices 
	case E_NOTICE: 
	break; 
// warnings 
	case E_WARNING: 
// report error 
	print "Non-fatal error on line $line of $file: $msg <br />"; 
	break; 
// other 
	default: 
	print "Error of type $type on line $line of $file: $msg <br />"; 
	break; 
	} 
} 
error_reporting(E_ALL);

echo "<h1>Update and Report</h1><br /><br />
*** To asure proper results, <h3>Please do not</h3> press any keys while this function is processing. ***<br /><br />
<fieldset>";

// THE CLASS DEFINITION TO HOLD THE CHANGELOG DATA FIELDS


class Changes

	protected $prodNo, $old_prodDisplayName, $new_prodDisplayName;

    {
    	$this->prodNo = $prodNo;

    }
//  END CONSTRUCT PRODUCT NUMBER  //

    }

In a table there are no empty rows. Either you update an existing row, or insert a new one.

If your UPDATE clause finds no existing rows to modify, nothing will change, although the query itself succeeds.

That said, if you can't tell in advance whether the row exists, you can use MySQL's
INSERT ... ON DUPLICATE, or alternatively
REPLACE instead of INSERT

to insert or update depending on whether the row already exists or not.
