Are you attempting to use a variable that has not been set yet, or do 
you mean you are getting these errors when you first assign a value to a 



echo "My value is $variable_value"; // This gives an error as 
$variable_value is not set

$variable_value = "now set";
echo "My value is $variable_value"; // This outputs My value is now set




$variable_value = "first time for everything"; // You get an error 
message here?
