problem inserting into database by extracting from another

gilgal posted 8 years ago in General
I decided to extract from my MS Access 2000 database and insert the values into a mysql database.

I decided to write a script to perform this task:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<title>Database Transfer</title>

}
</style>

<body>
<?php	
require_once('search/cat/odbc.php');
$sql = "Select * FROM bible WHERE book=1 and chapter < 25";
$query = odbc_exec($odbc, $sql) or die (odbc_errormsg());
//echo "<form action='transferresult.php' method='post'>"."\n";
echo "<input name='submit' type='submit' title='Transfer' value=' Transfer ' size='100' />"."\n";
echo "<table>"."\n";
echo "<tr>"."\n";	
//book_title

require_once('mysql.php');

mysql_query($sql2) or die('Error: ' . mysql_error());
}
odbc_close($odbc);
echo '</table>'."\n";
//echo '</form>'."\n";				
?>	
</body>
</html>


But the result was empty cells in the memo sections and a value of 0 in the integer sections.

You should check what $row2['text_cell'] gave you while this script runs and genereates the INSERT. The best would be to write these INSERTs to a .SQL-file, then load this file in HeidiSQL or another editor and analyze it. Could be that you had some wrong escaping or just empty variables, don't know.

I noticed that I didn't close mysql and that I had forgotten to name one $con into $con2 to distinguish from the previous connection $con. But I still got:

The screenshot is not helpful for debugging this - just check the values in your $row2 array, echo them before you generate the INSERT, or as already said, generate a .SQL file and analyze the contents afterwards.

$row2? You mean $row because I use $row2 for ...

I corrected to $row and it worked! Because $row was used with $con but not for $con2.

Error: 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 's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.')' at line 1



Do I have to put a \ before ' or something to ignore the syntax?
ansgar posted 8 years ago
Yes, definitely. You should use mysql_escape_string($row['something']) . That will add slashes where they're needed.
