I'm working on a sample code and have some questions.  My php and html files
are below.  I'm running on IIS and MySQL.  This code gives me the following
error:
 
 
Notice: Undefined variable: first in d:\\example\\datain.php on line 5

Notice: Undefined variable: last in d:\\example\\datain.php on line 5

Notice: Undefined variable: nickname in d:\\example\\datain.php on line 5

Notice: Undefined variable: email in d:\\example\\datain.php on line 5

Notice: Undefined variable: salary in d:\\example\\datain.php on line 5
Thank you! Information entered. 
 
If I add the following lines prior to the insert statement, it works fine.
$first = $HTTP_POST_VARS['first'];

$last = $HTTP_POST_VARS['last'];

$nickname = $HTTP_POST_VARS['nickname'];

$email = $HTTP_POST_VARS['email'];

$salary = $HTTP_POST_VARS['salary'];

Why do I need $HTTP_POST_VARS???? Thanks in advance.
