Sql Error – Incorrect integer value

Question by Babu Ahmed

I’m getting following error when I submit a form:

Can't added a new post. Incorrect integer value: '' for column 'aid' at row 1

Php Code:

$insert = mysql_query("INSERT INTO brt_articles VALUES( '', '$post_title', '$des', 
'$date', '$org_date')");    

        echo "<font color=green>Successfully added a new article.</font>";
        header("Refresh:3; url=allbrtarticle.php");
        echo "<font color=red>Can't added a new post</font>" . 

In my Localhost It’s ok. But in server why it’s giving me a error message ?

Answer by Starx

The aid field does not accept '' value as input.

The safest way is to specify column names as you are sending the query.

INSERT INTO brt_articles (title_field, description_field, date_field, org_date, fieldname) VALUES('$post_title', '$des', '$date', '$org_date');

If aid is a primary key, simply omit that field in your query

INSERT INTO brt_articles VALUES('$post_title', '$des', '$date', '$org_date')
