Exclamation Help with updating db on multi row php

I have created a simple little set of pages and a small mysql db that i use on my home server. I am having trouble creating a page that will allow me to update rows in my database. I can get the text areas to fill in but not update.

here is code for the page
PHP Code:


$dbname 'supplies';
if (!
'Could not connect: ' mysql_error());


mysql_select_db($dbname,$con) or die(mysql_error());
$fquery "SELECT * From generalitems WHERE boxnum ='$boxes'ORDER BY itemtype";
$result mysql_query($fquery) or die(mysql_error());

mysql_num_rows($result) == 0){
"no records found");
} ELSE {
<form action='' method='post' name='updatebox'><table border='1'>
<th> Box </th>
<th> Category </th>
<th> Item </th>
<th> Quantity </th>
<th> Purchase Date </th>
<th> Expiration Date </th>
<th> Description </th>
<th> Notes </th>

while($row mysql_fetch_array($result))
  <td><? $id[]=$rows['id']; ?><? echo $rows['id']; ?></td>
  <td><? echo $row['boxnum'];  ?></td>
  <td><input name='itemtype[]' type='text' value="<? echo $row['itemtype']; ?> "></td>
  <td><input name='item[]' type='text' value="<? echo $row['item']; ?>"></td>
  <td><input name='quantity[]' type='text' value="<? echo $row['quantity']; ?> " size="6"></td>
  <td><input name='datepurchased[]' type='text' value="<? echo $row['datepurchased']; ?> "></td>
  <td><input name='expiredate[]' type='text' value="<? echo $row['expiredate']; ?> "></td>
  <td><textarea name='description[]'><? echo $row["description"]; ?> </textarea></td>
  <td><textarea name='notes[]'><? echo $row["notes"]; ?> </textarea></td>


      <input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit">

// Check if button name "Submit" is active, do this
$sql1mysql_query("UPDATE generalitems SET itemtype='$itemtype[$i]', item='$item[$i]', quantity='$quantity[$i]', datepurchased='$datepurchased[$i]', expiredate='$expiredate[$i]', description='$description[$i]', notes='$notes[$i]' WHERE id='$id[$i]'");


I am not very concerned with security as this will not be hosted on the web. But any security problems noticed would also help. I havn't done any of this in about 4 years and its definatly not like riding a bike lol.
Thanks for any and all help.
