Hello Experts,
I have a conditional scenario as below:

$jobmode = {job_mode};
if ($jobmode == '9'){
$export = "recip_mm";
}else if ($jobmode == '7'){
$export = "recip_origin_export";
}else if ($jobmode == '8'){
$export = "recip_origin_export";
}
else{
$export = "recip_export";
}

Open in new window


And the below to insert the record in a table:
/**
 * Insert a record on another table
 */
$insert_table  = 'recip';              // Table name
$insert_fields = array(                   // Field list
                     '$export' => "'{job_vol}'",
);

Open in new window


Everything works fine except that I am not able to post $export to  '$export' => "'{job_vol}'",

How can this be done..
Thanks for any help

Remove single quotes from line 6, or use double quotes instead

$insert_fields = array(                   // Field list
                     $export => "'{job_vol}'",

or

$insert_fields = array(                   // Field list
                     "$export" => "'{job_vol}'",
