Default php

When I running this programme to retrieve the data from table,
its gives me this type of error in browser window, given below .

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 '>1990 ORDER BY movie_type' at line 1.

Please tell me about its solution.

Thank You.

This is the programme given below.

$connect=mysql_connect("localhost","root","asimpc" )
or die("Hey loser,check your server connection.");

$query="SELECT movie_name,movie_type ".
       "FROM MOVIE".
       "WHERE movie_year>1990 ".
       "ORDER BY movie_type ";
or die(mysql_error());

echo $movie_name;
echo " - ";
echo $movie_type;
echo "<br>";

A quick hint on debugging sql problems is to print your sql statement. It would have helped here ;)

$query="SELECT  movie_name,movie_type ".
       "FROM MOVIE".
       "WHERE movie_year>1990 ".
       "ORDER BY movie_type ";
echo $query;
Gives us:
SELECT  movie_name,movie_type FROM MOVIEWHERE movie_year>1990 ORDER BY movie_type
See the missing space? So, try:
$query="SELECT  movie_name,movie_type ".
       "FROM MOVIE ". // <-- extra space here
       "WHERE movie_year>1990 ".
       "ORDER BY movie_type ";
echo $query;
And we get:
SELECT  movie_name,movie_type FROM MOVIE WHERE movie_year>1990 ORDER BY movie_type
