PHP FreeTDS unable insert into MSSQL

I'm able to run select statements to my sql server
 $link = mssql_connect('', 'userx', 'pasx');

if (!$link)
    die('Unable to connect!');
if (!mssql_select_db('Camstat', $link))
    die('Unable to select database!');

$result = mssql_query("INSERT INTO [DB1].[dbo].[Footage_Age] ([DVRId] ,[CameraId]  ,[Last_Date] ) VALUES    (135456,525685,'2013-08-27')");

while ($row = mssql_fetch_array($result)) {

But I'm unable to run inserts into the DB.  The user has write permission to the sql db.  I've tried a lot of examples I've found on the net but with no success.

Are you getting any error? Are you checking the properDB and table?

Run below in SSMS and see if the row is inserting or not.

INSERT INTO [DB1].[dbo].[Footage_Age] ([DVRId] ,[CameraId]  ,[Last_Date] )
VALUES    (135456,525685,'2013-08-27')

Query looks ok to me so you need to check the php code, Debug the php code

When performing an insert the $result on line 10 of your code is either going to be TRUE or FALSE.  It is not an object which you can use in your mssql_fetch_array() function call.

You should simply be checking if the value was TRUE or FALSE.

Try something like the following:
$link = mssql_connect('', 'userx', 'pasx');

if (!$link) {
    die('Unable to connect!');
if (!mssql_select_db('Camstat', $link)) {
    die('Unable to select database!');

if (!mssql_query("INSERT INTO [DB1].[dbo].[Footage_Age] ([DVRId] ,[CameraId]  ,[Last_Date] ) VALUES    (135456,525685,'2013-08-27')")) {
    echo 'Unable to insert the data');

Note that there should be no need to free the result, as your insert would not generate more than one result.
