Hey guys...it's me again...so, below you will find the script that I have that is supposed to update my database, however, it does NOTHING but return "Record Updated" and never updated anything. Any suggestions?

$update = "UPDATE clients SET (     'userid' = '{$_SESSION['myusername']}',     'cp_firstname' = '$_POST[cp_firstname]',      'cp_lastname' = '$_POST[cp_lastname]',      'cp_address' = '$_POST[cp_address]',      'cp_city' = '$_POST[cp_city]',      'cp_state' = ' $_POST[cp_state] ',      'cp_zip' = ' $_POST[cp_zip] ',      'cp_zip4' = ' $_POST[cp_zip4] ',      'cp_homeph' = '$_POST[cp_homeph] ',      'cp_workph' = '$_POST[cp_workph] ',      'cp_cellph' = '$_POST[cp_cellph] ',      'cp_email' = '$_POST[cp_email] ',      'alt_firstname' = '$_POST[alt_firstname] ',       'alt_lastname' = '$_POST[alt_lastname] ',      'alt_homeph' = '$_POST[alt_homeph] ',      'alt_cellph' = '$_POST[alt_cellph] ',      'non_firstname' = '$_POST[non_firstname] ',      'non_lastname' = '$_POST[non_lastname] ',      'non_home' = '$_POST[non_address] ',      'non_city' = '$_POST[non_city] ',      'non_state' = '$_POST[non_state] ',      'non_zip' = '$_POST[non_zip] ',      'non_zip4' = '$_POST[non_zip4] ',      'non_homeph' = '$_POST[non_homeph] ',      'non_workph' = '$_POST[non_workph] ',      'non_cellph' = '$_POST[non_cellph] ',      'non_email' = '$_POST[non_email] ',      'placeofemployment' = '$_POST[placeofemployment] ',      'datestart' = '$_POST[datestart] ',      'supportamount' = '$_POST[supportamount] ',      'judgmentdate' = '$_POST[judgmentdate] ',      'judge' = '$_POST[judge]',      'beg_bal' = '$_POST[beg_bal]' WHERE      client_id='{$_SESSION['client_id']}')"; mysql_query($update);echo "Record updated";

Where'd I go wrong???

I have tried

'cp_address' = '". $_POST['cp_address'] ."'

AND

'cp_address' = '{$_POST[cp_address]}'

NOTHING has worked...all my tags and column names are correct, since I copied them from my INSERT code when adding the information for the first time. UPDATE:Okay, so using the BOTTOM code snippet, I added var_dump to check my variable and it IS reading the POST data, but not ADDING it... UPDATE #2:I even converted all the POST data to variables like $cp_address = $_POST['cp_address']; and again, the var_dump function shows that I DID type something in the form field. Below is the form page script:

<form id="edit" name="edit" method="POST" action="edit_insert.php">   <table width="618" border="0" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="2" class="different" id="different">   <tr >     <td colspan="2" align="center"><h2>       <input type="hidden" name="user" value="<? echo $myusername ; ?>" /><input type="hidden" name="clientid" value="<? echo $clientid ; ?>" />Edit Client for User: <?php echo $row['cp_firstname'] ."

check what does return mysql_query() and even query get successfully get executed or not. You can use mysql_error() to print any error mysql encounters

LOL...thanks for that, I don't know WHY I keep forgetting that little trick...the error reads:

You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '('userid = 'abark', 'cp_firstname' = 'Tyler', 'cp_lastname' = 'XXXX', 'cp' at line 1
So, perhaps my sql has been completely updated to MySQLi...if so, how do I update my query??

mysqli has both OOP and modular API. modular API is quite same as mysql API. it have mysqli_query() it has another identical method in OOP. Query itself dont get changed with different API. SQL remains same.http://php.net/Mysqli

Don't put quotes around field names. Quotes are for strings, not names. If you use a reserved word for a field or table name then you can use `backquotes` to make sure it sees it as an identifier and not a reserved word, but when you put single quotes around something you are saying that is a text string and not an identifier. The error message indicates that the first field name has an error.

Nothing...I tried it with ` back quotes ` and without any quotes. the error looks like it starts right at the SET portion. Var_dump returns correct information with regards to the first field name.....so, I have NO idea!
