Hi,

I get an error with update and I am not sure how to fix it. The data gets passed from html and the cols in mysql exist.

$query = "UPDATE tbmod1 VALUES set    q1='$q1', q2='$q2', q3='$q3', q4='$q4', q5='$q5', q6='$q6', q7='$q7', q8='$q8', q9='$q9', q10='$q10 ',q11='$q11',q12='$q12' where user='a'";

$result = mysql_query($query) or die(mysql_error());

You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'VALUES set q1='enter here', q2='enter here', q3='enter here', q4='asd', q5='k' at line 1

Also, you want to get off of MySQL.  PHP is removing it.  This article explains why and what you must do to keep your scripts running.

Try
$query = "UPDATE tbmod1 set    q1='$q1', q2='$q2', q3='$q3', q4='$q4', q5='$q5', q6='$q6', q7='$q7', q8='$q8', q9='$q9', q10='$q10 ',q11='$q11',q12='$q12' where user='a'";

The problem is VALUES Remove Values from your query:
$query = "UPDATE tbmod1 set    q1='$q1', q2='$q2', q3='$q3', q4='$q4', q5='$q5', q6='$q6', q7='$q7', q8='$q8', q9='$q9', q10='$q10 ',q11='$q11',q12='$q12' where user='a'";

What I might do is use mysql and when php5.5 comes in , change what I have then. I dont use mysql/php enough to really worry about the latest method .

Thanks for the points.  

I think you may be missing the importance of PHP's direction with the MySQL extension.  It's not about whether your PHP/MySQL scripts will keep running (they will run for a while and will break eventually).  It's about object-oriented programming, security, and object reuse.  As PHP matures, so must the programming techniques of PHP users.  As PHP moves forward in time, support is removed for older releases.  Today, PHP 5.4 is current and PHP 5.2 is no longer supported, not even for security exploits.  So if someone finds a way to hack a PHP 5.2 site, the only recourse the site publisher has is to upgrade.  It's a terrible thing to find yourself doing an emergency upgrade.  That's why professionals take the longer view and stay on top of advancements in technology and technique.
