[thelist] undefined index error - PHP and MySQL

Ok, thats where I was getting confused then. I kept finding references to mysql_insert_id() returning the wrong value. I'm not using BIGINT so it works fine for me. Thanks again!

No problem. I was poking around a bit more, and this is from the  
PHP.net site:
mysql_insert_id() converts the return type of the native MySQL C API  
function mysql_insert_id() to a type of long (named int in PHP). If  
your AUTO_INCREMENT column has a column type of BIGINT, the value  
returned by mysql_insert_id()  will be incorrect. Instead, use the  
internal MySQL SQL function LAST_INSERT_ID() in an SQL query.
