    I'm hoping someone may be able to help me with a slight problem i'm having with trying to retrieve and update/edit my values from a MySQL database which are used in an updateable form that allow edits, and send back the edited text into a MySQL database. I've been able to successfully retrieve the text and put it into the editable form, but when I submit the text it doesn't change in the database. could you please tell me where im going wrong, thanks. heres my code;
