How to I fix this strpos statement?  I attempted to have it pregmatch 'GTIN' within the string and could not get that to work correctly, and now I am attempting t use the entire line of text....

I am getting the following error:  
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '') {' (T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING)

if (strpos('"Invalid GTIN value"|"Insufficient product identifiers: Missing GTIN attribute."',$row13['errordesc']')  {
        $upc="";
        } else {
        $upc="$row13['upc']";
        }

Try this:
if (strpos("Invalid GTIN value"|"Insufficient product identifiers: Missing GTIN attribute.", $row13["errordesc"]))
				{
        $upc="";
        } else {
        $upc= $row13['upc'];
        }

Gary,
I got an error on yours but I appreciate your consistent help very much!!!
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '' (T_ENCAPSED_AND_WHITESPACE), expecting identifier (T_STRING) or variable (T_VARIABLE) or number (T_NUM_STRING)

Marco,
Yours worked great!  Thanks!
