    First step, when asking for mysql help, get rid of all of the rest of the php code and just show us the relevant part.

    Second when you enclose a column name in single quotes mysql recognizes it as a string and not a column name. Remove those around the column names.

    Third don't use spaces in column names.

    when you've cleaned second and third points up you should be fine.

    This is a PHP question, not a HTML question (one of the mods might want to move this).

    Your query is wrong. It's a pretty basic SQL syntax problem. When you use database, table or column names in a query, you use back-ticks (`) round them, not quotes ('). So, your query would need to be something like:
    PHP Code:
    mysql_query("INSERT INTO form(`user name`, `full name`, `e-mail`, `password`) VALUES('$userName','$fullName','$email','$password ')"); 
    One other thing that's a recommendation: your column names are going to cause you problems somewhere down the line. As a general rule, you should not use spaces, dashes or special characters. Stick to letters, numbers and underscores only as these are a lot easier to work with and will ensure no issues later on.

    Welcome to DevShed Forums, bakul123.

    Please don't post the same question in multiple forums. Pick the one that you feel is best. (If it turns out another is better, a moderator can move your thread for you.) (Cross-post in MySQL forum.)

    P.S. It would be helpful if you put your code between [code][/code] tags in the future.
