I have this form:

<form action="processorder.php" method=post>
<table border=0>
<tr bgcolor=#cccccc>
  <td width=150>Item</td>
  <td width=15>Quantity</td>
  <td align=center><input type="text" name="tyreqty" size=3 maxlength=3></td>
  <td align=center><input type="text" name="oilqty" size=3 maxlength=3></td>
  <td>Spark Plugs</td>
  <td align=center><input type="text" name="sparkqty" size=3 maxlength=3></td>
  <td colspan=2 align=center><input type=submit value="Submit Order"></td>

The file processorder.php starts like this:

  echo "<p>Order processed at "; // Start printing order 

  echo date("H:i, jS F");
  echo "<br>";
  echo "<p>Your order is as follows:";
  echo "<br>";
  echo $tyreqty." tyres<br>";
  echo $oilqty." bottles of oil<br>";
  echo $sparkqty." spark plugs<br>";

When I upload it to the server I get this error:

Your order is as follows:

Notice: Undefined variable: tyreqty in c:\inetpub\wwwroot\processorder.php on line 15

Notice: Undefined variable: oilqty in c:\inetpub\wwwroot\processorder.php on line 16
bottles of oil

Notice: Undefined variable: sparkqty in c:\inetpub\wwwroot\processorder.php on line 17
spark plugs

What do I have to do to fix this? as I can`t get very far if I can`t post variables from one page to another. I am aware that this error may already have been posted but with a ISDN line for 50 people here searching the bugs is taking too long. Could you at least supply me a link to the correct bug?

Thanks in advance

In PHP 4.2.0, the 'register_globals' setting default changed to
be off. See for more info.
We are sorry about the inconvenience, but this change was a necessary
part of our efforts to make PHP scripting more secure and portable.
