Hello Experts,

I would like to insert the values from the PHP page into MYSQL database where the values were in the form of ...

<?php 
 for ($i = 0; $i < count($_POST['chkbx']); $i++) {
            $chkd = $_POST['chkbx'][$i];
            $filename = $_POST['myfilename'][$i];
            $src = $_POST['mysource'][$i];
            $tgt = $_POST['mytarget'][$i];
            
}
?>

Open in new window


For example, there are 5 rows on php and user has selected any of the rows...that row data from php needs to inserted into mysql database that many rows.

Can you suggest the query for this or any references?

Thanks,
Shail

You mean something like..
<?php
   $conn = mysql_connect ("localhost","login","password");
   $db = mysql_select_db('database',$conn);

$LIBRARY_NO=$_POST['LIBRARY_NO'];
$TITLE=mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['TITLE']);
$LYRICIST=$_POST['LYRICIST'];
$VOICING=$_POST['VOICING'];
$NO_OF_COPIES=$_POST['NO_OF_COPIES'];

// Update the database if form posted 
if ($_POST['cmdadd'] != null)
{ 
$sql = "INSERT INTO Music(";
if ($LIBRARY_NO != null) {$sql=$sql."`LIBRARY_NO`";}
if ($TITLE != null) {$sql=$sql.", `TITLE`";}
if ($LYRICIST != null) {$sql=$sql.", `LYRICIST`";}
if ($VOICING != null) {$sql=$sql.", `VOICING`";}
if ($NO_OF_COPIES != null) {$sql=$sql.", `NO_OF_COPIES`";}
$sql=$sql.")"; 
//echo $sql;
$result = mysql_query($sql) or die("SQL Update failed"); 
  if ( ! $result )
    die ("Couldn't update: ".mysql_error());
  print "<h1>Table updated ". mysql_affected_rows() . 
  " row(s) changed</h1><p>";
}
?>

then execute the query with mysql, mysqli or PDO. Keep in mind that now the use of mysql is discouraged and it is recommended the use of mysqli or PDO

If you want, you can post the markup of the form so I can be a bit more precise.

Hello Expert,

The markup is something like this...

echo "<tr class=\"d" . ($i & 1) . "\">
                        <td><input class=textboxa type=text style=\"font-style: Italic;font-weight: bold;\" value=\"$i\" /><br/></td>
                        <td><input name=test_$i class=textboxc type=text style=\"font-style: Italic;font-weight: bold;\" value=\"" . $row['Delivery'] . "\" title=Delivery /><br/></td>
                        <td><input name=subtest_$i class=textboxc type=text style=\"font-style: Italic;font-weight: bold;\" value=\"" . $row['quality'] . "\" title=quality /><br/></td></tr>";

I don't see checkboxes: how user selects rows? In your first snipet you used $_POST['chkbx'] so I presumed you had a checkbox per row in your form...

Hello expert,

Yes, there is an checkbox each row...

<td><input name=chk[] type=checkbox value=$i /><br/></td>

Well, then you have to use 'chk' instead of 'chkbx':

<?php 
 for ($i = 0; $i < count($_POST['chk']); $i++) {
            $chkd = $_POST['chkbx'][$i];
            $filename = mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['myfilename'][$i]);
            $src = mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['mysource'][$i]);
            $tgt = mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['mytarget'][$i]);
            $query = "INSERT INTO table (filename, src, tgt) VALUES ('$filename', '$src', '$tgt')";
            mysql_query($query) or die(mysql_error()); 
}
?>
