When I try to execute my insert query then, I get the following error: enter image description here

Below is my code:

$fname = $posted['firstname'];
$email = $posted['email'];
$phone = $posted['phone'];
$productinfo = $posted['productinfo'];
$amount = $posted['amount'];
$address2 = $posted['address2'];
$country = $posted['country'];
$state = $posted['state'];
$city = $posted['city'];
$zipcode = $posted['zipcode'];
$date = date('y:m:d:h:m:s');

$query = "INSERT INTO `#__rays_donat` (`full_name`, `email`, `phone`, `production_info`, `amount`, `address`, `country`, `city`, `state`, `zipcode`, `form_submit_date`) VALUES ('$fname','$email','$phone', '$productinfo', '$amount', '$address2', '$country', '$city', '$state', '$zipcode', '$date')";

$db->setQuery( $query );


Please help me

    The error message says that you are trying to insert into a table that doesn't exist. Check that the table name is correct and that you haven't made any spelling mistakes. – TryHarder Mar 31 '16 at 12:47

Please try sticking to Joomla's coding methods and ensure your table name is correct:

$db = JFactory::getDbo();

$query = $db->getQuery(true);

$columns = array('full_name', 'email', 'phone', 'production_info', 'amount', 'address', 'country', 'country', 'city', 'state', 'zipcode', 'form_submit_date');

$fname       = $db->quote($posted['firstname']);
$email       = $db->quote($posted['email']);
$phone       = $db->quote($posted['phone']);
$productinfo = $db->quote($posted['productinfo']);
$amount      = $db->quote($posted['amount']);
$address2    = $db->quote($posted['address2']);
$country     = $db->quote($posted['country']);
$state       = $db->quote($posted['state']);
$city        = $db->quote($posted['city']);
$zipcode     = $db->quote($posted['zipcode']);
$date        = $db->quote(date('y:m:d:h:m:s'));

$values = array($fname, $email, $phone, $productinfo, $amount, $address2, $country, $state, $city, $zipcode, $date);

      ->values(implode(',', $values));


Remember that #__ is Joomla's generic table name prefix, so make sure you table name has the same prefix as other tables, for example:

  • jos_users
  • jos_content
  • jos_extensions
  • jos_rays_donat
