$haystack = array($vpKey1, $vpKey2, $vpKey3); // NEED TO BE VARIABLES

$vpKey1 = "Water Heaters";

$vpKey2 = "Plumbing Supplies";

$vpKey3 = "Heating";

$needle = "Heating";

if (in_array($needle, $haystack)){ echo '<P>yes';}else { echo '<P>no';}

This always returns "NO". How can this be made to work??

many thanks,
