Hi I think I might be on to something. The data that is returned by $HTTP_POST VARS is read from a form, which is populated with data from MySQL. In other words the Blue Lamas,A,34 is read from MySQL, along with other options that the user picks from. When the user picks one of these and hits submit the chosen data is sent back. So the problem could lie in the way MySQL fills in the space. I have used the exact code in other places, but in all of these (I think) the data is entered by the user. So does anyone know what MySQL puts in the space and how I can get it recognized as a space? Thanks.
