Default Help with code

There is either something wrong with the code on pg. 95-96, or I am doing something wrong:

<?php
//connect to mysql
$connect = mysql_connect("localhost", "root", "root")
    or die ("Hey! Check your server connection");

//make sure checking right DB
mysql_select_db("moviesite");

//insert data into table
$insert = "INSERT INTO movie (movie_id, movie_name, movie_type, " .
            "movie_year, movie_leadactor, movie_director) " .
            "VALUES (1, 'Bruce Almighty', 5, 2003, 1, 2), " .
            "(2, 'Office Space', 5, 1999, 5, 6), " .
            "(3, 'Grand Canyon', 2, 1991, 4, 3), ";
$results = mysql_query($insert)
    or die(mysql_error());

//insert data into "movietype" table
$type = "INSERT INTO movietype (movietype_id, movietype_label) " .
        "VALUES (1, 'Sci Fi'), " .
        "(2, 'Drama'), " .
        "(3, 'Adventure'), " .
        "(4, 'War'), " .
        "(5, 'Comedy'), " .
        "(6, 'Horror'), " .
        "(7, 'Action'), " .
        "(8, 'Kids'), " .
$results = mysql_query($type)
    or die (mysql_error());

//insert data into "people" table
$people = "INSERT INTO people (people_id, people_fullname, " .
        "people_isactor, people_isdirector) " .
        "VALUES (1, 'Jim Carey', 1, 0), " .
        "(2, 'Tom Shadyac', 0, 1), " .
        "(3, 'Lawrence Kasdan', 0, 1), " .
        "(4, 'Kevin Kline', 1, 0), " .
        "(5, 'Ron Livingston', 1, 0), " .
        "(6, 'Mike Judge', 0, 1)";
$results = mysql_query($people)
    or die(mysql_error());

echo "Data inserted successfully!";
?>

Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?

Thanks for your help,
-andrea

Hello Andrea,
Does the following work:


<?php
//connect to mysql
$connect = mysql_connect("localhost", "root", "root")
    or die ("Hey! Check your server connection");

//make sure checking right DB
mysql_select_db("moviesite");

//insert data into table
$insert = "INSERT INTO movie (movie_id, movie_name, movie_type, " .
            "movie_year, movie_leadactor, movie_director), " .
            "VALUES (1, 'Bruce Almighty', 5, 2003, 1, 2), " .
            "(2, 'Office Space', 5, 1999, 5, 6), " .
            "(3, 'Grand Canyon', 2, 1991, 4, 3), ";
$results = mysql_query($insert)
    or die(mysql_error());

//insert data into "movietype" table
$type = "INSERT INTO movietype (movietype_id, movietype_label) " .
        "VALUES (1, 'Sci Fi'), " .
        "(2, 'Drama'), " .
        "(3, 'Adventure'), " .
        "(4, 'War'), " .
        "(5, 'Comedy'), " .
        "(6, 'Horror'), " .
        "(7, 'Action'), " .
        "(8, 'Kids'), " .
$results = mysql_query($type)
    or die (mysql_error());

//insert data into "people" table
$people = "INSERT INTO people (people_id, people_fullname, " .
        "people_isactor, people_isdirector) " .
        "VALUES (1, 'Jim Carey', 1, 0), " .
        "(2, 'Tom Shadyac', 0, 1), " .
        "(3, 'Lawrence Kasdan', 0, 1), " .
        "(4, 'Kevin Kline', 1, 0), " .
        "(5, 'Ron Livingston', 1, 0), " .
        "(6, 'Mike Judge', 0, 1)";
$results = mysql_query($people)
    or die(mysql_error());

echo "Data inserted successfully!";
?>
I placed a comma after:
$insert = "INSERT INTO movie (movie_id, movie_name, movie_type, " .
            "movie_year, movie_leadactor, movie_director),

Bye,

The format for INSERT is:

INSERT INTO file (fieldlist) VALUES (valuelist),(valuelist),(etc)

There's not supposed to be a comma between the field list and the VALUES keyword. If you look at the $type and $people strings, they're done exactly the same way.
