You are missing a dot after the first $_REQUEST

Your snytax isn't entirely correct as kmslogic pointed out. Further I would use the appropriate request name such as post or get instead of the geral request method.

For better debugging add an error_reporting(E_ALL); at the top of your php document.
for ($i=1; $i<=25; $i++)
  $message .= $i. ". " .$_REQUEST['state'.$1]. "/" .$_REQUEST['county'.$1]. "/".$_REQUEST['searchfee'.$1]. "/".$_REQUEST['copyfee'.$1]. "/".$_REQUEST['recordingfee'.$1]. "/".$_REQUEST['miscfee'.$1]. "/".$_REQUEST['turntime'.$1]. "\n";

Open in new window

the error_reporting might reveal further syntax errors or other errors related to the 25 variables.
