help with mysqli insert

    Hi, I hopd someone will advise me as to where I'm going astray here. I'm trying to insert using PHP
    mysqli, using a form locally (<a href="waitinsert-form.html">. Following is
    the code for the form (is the form flawed?) followed by the code for the insert.
    I have tried following several online examples with no success.
    the code for the form:
    <STYLE type=text/css>.highlight {
    BACKGROUND: #ff6699
    .text {
    COLOR: #ffffff
    .both {
    BACKGROUND: black; COLOR: white

    <STYLE>INPUT.bgyellow {
    <body bgcolor="ccffff">
    <b>Waiting/transfers List input form<p>
    <form action="waitinsert.php" name=Form method="post">

    <label for="entrytype">Entrytype:</label>
    <input type="text" name="entrytype" id="entrytype">

    the code for insert:

    // Create connection
    $conn = mysqli_connect($servername, $username, $password, $dbname);

    the result:

    What error you are getting exactly. I saw there multiple error.
    Missing " " in form name.
    Missing "" in class and value.
    Missing "" in class and value
    Missing "" in name
    Missing "" in class, value
    There are multiple line where you are missing "" ... Your form is running without any error ?????

    You have an extra } at the end of the php script.
    The query isn't well formed.
    Should look like this one:
    $sql = "INSERT INTO `waittbl` ('entrytype', 'appl', 'date', 'time', 'tenant', 'racegend', 'ethnicity', 'displ',
    'compday', 'compmoyr', 'incomelevel', 'brneeded', 'moveindate', 'removaldate', 'code', 'comments')
    VALUES ('{$entrytype}','{$appl}','{$date}','{$time}','{$tenant}','{$racegend}','{$ethnicity}','{$displ}',
    Code (markup):
    As pointed out by seomanualsubmission you also have multiple errors in the form.
    Correct them first, then try again and post us the complete error you get.
