    Question For loop not updating database

    Hi, I need a fresh set of eyes to help me out with this. It's one of them small but probably obvious problems I just can't see.
    Anyway, all of this works up until the point of updating the requested item and I can't for the life of me see why the hell not...

    PHP Code:
    $array1 = array("item 1""item 2""item 3""item 4""item 5""item 6""item 7""item 8""item 9");
    $array2 = array("item_1""item_2""item_3""item_4""item_5""item_6""item_7""item_8""item_9");
    $array1[$i] == $_POST['item']){
    $_SESSION['items'][$i] > 0){ // If the user has enough of the used item
    $_SESSION['items'][$i] -= 1// update the item session
    $rq $array2[$i];
    mysql_query("UDPATE items SET $rq = $rq - 1 WHERE uid = '{$_SESSION['myid']}'"); // Update used item

    What debugging have you done to find where the problem is at?

    Is $_POST['item'] even set? Does $_POST['item'] contain one of the expected values? Does it contain some extra white-space that would prevent the code from matching the value in it? Are there any $_SESSION variables at all? Does the $_SESSION['items'] entry, that has the same numerical index 0-8 that matches the submitted $_POST['item'], have a positive quantity? Does $_SESSION['myid'] exist and have an expected value? Is the mysql query what you expect? Is the query producing an error when it runs?

    In short, you are the only one who can determine what your code and data is actually doing, what have you found?

    Finding out HOW to do something is called research, i.e. keep searching until you find the answer. After you attempt to do something and cannot solve a problem with it yourself, would be when you ask others for help.
