I have an array of datetimes that is within another array ($data):

Looks like:
$data[StartDates]

How can I insert each of the dates within StartDates into a table, 1 date per row?

Something like:

foreach ($data[StartDates] as $startdate) {
$query = "INSERT INTO contest_dates (contestdate) VALUES ($startdate) ";
$result = mysql_query($query) or die(mysql_error());
}

*the above fails
Message: Use of undefined constant StartDates - assumed 'StartDates'

Hope I'm explaining it right.
thanks

Foreach ($data as $startdate) {
Might be what you are looking for/at.

You do not use a single element/array cell

If the on tents of $data[startdate] is a list than it is a differenent story.
Could you post an example of the data
$data[startdate]
$#data

Hi, answer was:
Foreach ($data['ContestStartDate'] as $value) {

but got me pointed in the right direction.
Thanks!
