Notice: Undefined variable: action in /home/fhlinux160/s/sitcomsoldiers.com/user/htdocs/admin/news/edit.php on line 33

here's the code line 33 in red

if($action == "edit" && isset($HTTP_POST_VARS['password'])) {
    if($HTTP_POST_VARS['password'] == "skills") {
      $line = $HTTP_POST_VARS['date'] . "|" . $HTTP_POST_VARS['name'];
        $line .= "|" . $HTTP_POST_VARS['news'];
        $line = str_replace("\r\n","<BR>",$line);
        $line .= "\r\n";
        $data = file('news.txt');
