Is there anything more to the code?  For example, how do you set the variables $i and $options?

sorry the included php.php script is here
 
<?php 

// Connect to server 
// Replace username and password by your details  

$db = @mysql_connect("localhost","root","iqonr301"); 
if (!$db) 
{ 
        do_error("Could not connect to the server"); 
} 


// Connect to the database 
// Note that your database will be called username 

@mysql_select_db("test",$db)or do_error("Could not connect to the database"); 

//connect to db first
$options = '';
$teachers = mysql_query('SELECT * FROM teacher ORDER BY name ASC');
while($teacher = mysql_fetch_array($teachers)) {
     $options .= sprintf("<option value='%s'>%s</option>", $teacher['name'], $teacher['name']);
}
$class_options = '';
$classes = mysql_query('SELECT * FROM class');
while($class = mysql_fetch_array($classes)) {
     $class_options .= sprintf("<option value='%s'>%s</option>", $class['name'], $class['name']);
}
$room_options = '';
$rooms = mysql_query('SELECT * FROM room');
while($room = mysql_fetch_array($rooms)) {
     $room_options .= sprintf("<option value='%s'>%s</option>", $room['number'], $room['number']);
}
$subject_options = '';
$subjects = mysql_query('SELECT * FROM subject');
while($subject = mysql_fetch_array($subjects)) {
     $subject_options .= sprintf("<option value='%s'>%s</option>", $subject['name'], $subject['name']);
