Hi Terion,

not sure of your skill level.. so don't take offense!!

When trying to debug, go ahead and print/display the actual mysql query
you're trying to implement. also, it'a good idea to display the mysql err
that's being thrown when the quey isn't working.

i'm going to guess that there might be a value in one of your vals that
isn't set correctly.

let us know your progress..

Ok, what could cause this...script worked fine when I left the office
yesterday and now this morning it is back to Not inserting? This seems to be
happening to me the whole 3 weeks I got suckered into doing this job:
Here's the script:

 include 'inc/dbconnOpen.php';
 $href = $_POST['href'];
 $title = $_POST['title'];
 $blurb = $_POST['blurb'];
 $bmonth = $_POST['bmonth'];
 $bday = $_POST['bday'];
 $byear = $_POST['byear'];
 $emonth = $_POST['emonth'];
 $eday = $_POST['eday'];
 $eyear = $_POST['eyear'];
 $expos = $_POST['expos'];

 $query = "INSERT INTO `textads`  (`title`, `href`, `blurb`, `bmonth`,
`bday`, `byear`, `emonth`, `eday`, `eyear`, `expos`) VALUES
('$title', '$href', '$blurb', '$bDate', '$eDate', '$expos', '$bmonth',
'$bday', '$byear', '$emonth', '$eday', '$eyear')";
/*echo $query; */
 mysql_query($query) or die('Error, friggin insert query failed');
 echo "New Dream Job Text Ad  added";
