I am trying to login a user. I want to get the users name and account type from the database the store them in a cookie.
I am recieving this message when I try to run the script:
"Warning: mysql_fetch_object(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in C:\Project\Music Manager\check_login.php on line 14"

I am using IIS on Windows XP.

Reproduce code:
  $password = crypt($HTTP_POST_VARS["password"]);

  $connec = mysql_connect("localhost", "root", "farmer01");
    $data = mysql_query( "SELECT username, name_first,  
                          name_last, acc_type FROM user 
	                  WHERE username 
                         = ".$HTTP_POST_VARS['username']." 
                          AND password = ".$password."");

    If (!$data){
	  header("Location: /err_login.php"); }
    else {	  
	  $row = mysql_fetch_object($data);
	  $values = "".$row->username."|".$row->name_first.
	  setcookie( "user", $values ); 

Expected result:
I was expecting that all of the values above would have been placed into the cookies "user"as a string. To later be seperated by the explode() function.

Actual result:
I recieved this message:
"Warning: mysql_fetch_object(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in C:\Project\...\check_login.php on line 14"

Try adding 'echo mysql_error();' and 'var_dump($data);'
after the mysql_query() call.
