    How to update multiple rows in one call

    Hello friends, i am very new on this php world and i am trying to create a php file that updates multiple rows in one button.
    I use dreamweaver, and as you now it creates a lot of info when using the wizard.
    I have search the web and none of the tutorials seems to work. This is the code i have, I shows all the register of the table "relatores" but when press the submit button it does not update anything.

    PHP Code:
    <?php require_once('Connections/gestion.php'); ?>
    ('Content-Type: text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1');
    function GetSQLValueString($theValue$theType$theDefinedValue ""$theNotDefinedValue ""
    $theValue = (!get_magic_quotes_gpc()) ? addslashes($theValue) : $theValue;

      switch (
    $theType) {
    $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" $theValue "'" "NULL";
    $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? intval($theValue) : "NULL";
    $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" doubleval($theValue) . "'" "NULL";
    $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" $theValue "'" "NULL";
    $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? $theDefinedValue $theNotDefinedValue;

    $editFormAction $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];
    if (isset(
    $editFormAction .= "?" htmlentities($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING']);

    if ((isset(
    $_POST["MM_update"])) && ($_POST["MM_update"] == "form1")) {
    $updateSQL sprintf("UPDATE relatores SET id_estado=%s WHERE Id_relator=%s",
    GetSQLValueString($_POST['id_estado'], "int"),
    GetSQLValueString($_POST['Id_relator'], "int"));

    $Result1 mysql_query($updateSQL$gestion) or die(mysql_error());

    $updateGoTo "oo";
      if (isset(
    $updateGoTo .= (strpos($updateGoTo'?')) ? "&" "?";
    $updateGoTo .= $_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'];
    header(sprintf("Location: %s"$updateGoTo));

    $query_cambiaestadorelator "SELECT relatores.Id_relator, relatores.nombre_relator, relatores.ap_paterno_relator, relatores.ap_materno_relator, relatores.id_region, relatores.id_estado FROM relatores";
    $cambiaestadorelator mysql_query($query_cambiaestadorelator$gestion) or die(mysql_error());
    $row_cambiaestadorelator mysql_fetch_assoc($cambiaestadorelator);
    $totalRows_cambiaestadorelator mysql_num_rows($cambiaestadorelator);
    $count mysql_num_rows($result);

    1) While I appreciate your attempt at being explicit with sprintf, you should be using PDO and not the deprecated mysql extension. Look into how to do prepared statements with PDO, it's a similar structure to what you have now.

    2) You did absolutely zero debugging of this code on your own. I'll show you how debugging works:

    - you say update isn't failing. Find update
    - there's no error checking on the query (naturally). Add some. But before you re-run the script...
    - It's an UPDATE so the WHERE clause may be wrong. What variable is in the WHERE?
    - It comes from $_POST, so it's a form element. You can print_r($_POST) and examine it to find out what's wrong, or...
    - Go down to your form and look for that element.
    - Its name ends with []. That means it's an array and you're using it wrong in your query.

    Ta-da, your issue is debugged. You were using an array as a scalar.

    The new user guide contains more debugging tips.

    • ptr2void agrees : You have a Dreamweaver user here, utilizing a wizard. To expect debugging skills is unfortunately setting the bar too high.
