Two questions: 

1. What kind of error are you getting when you try to run the query? This
may sound like a dumb question, but how do you know that the query is not

2. Try this and see what is printed out.
$query = "INSERT INTO scouting (playerID, report) VALUES

The fact that you can print out the values for your POST variables does not
mean that your sql statement is sound.

Little help please, I have this INSERT:

include 'inc/config.php'; // config contains my DB connection
$scout = $_POST['scoutReport'];
$pid   = $_POST['pid'];
mysql_query("INSERT INTO scouting (playerID, report) VALUES

I've printed out the values for the POST variables and they are coming over.
I can run the insert
successfully in mySQL and it works. But it won't work in my php page - am I
forgetting something?
It's been awhile...
