Basic, Just cant see it. dkin msg:1269430 5:08 pm on Apr 16, 2006 (gmt 0) is there a problem with this
error_reporting(E_ALL); include 'dbconnect.php';
$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM character where uid = '1'", $link) or die ("query 1: " . mysql_error());
$row = mysql_fetch_array($result); ?>
Im getting this error
query 1: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'character where uid = '1'' at line 1

How did you define uid field Ė as string or number? I am guessing as a number, hence I donít think you need single quotes around itís value. So it should be something like:
$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM character WHERE uid=1", $link) or die ("query 1: " . mysql_error());
I am relative newb to PHP and MySQL so take this with grain of saltÖ.

Take this with a pinch of salt too, but I believe that 'character' is a reserved word in MySQL. Running a similar query here gives the same error, as opposed to the 'db.table does not exist'.
Check the MySQL manual for reserved words.

Found the reference:
The words in the following table are explicitly reserved in MySQL 5.0. At some point, you might update to a higher version, so it's a good idea to have a look at future reserved words, too. You can find these in the manuals that cover higher versions of MySQL. Most of the words in the table are forbidden by standard SQL as column or table names (for example, GROUP). A few are reserved because MySQL needs them and (currently) uses a yacc parser. A reserved word can be used as an identifier if you quote it.
Among the words is indeed 'character'.

Try using back ticks:
"SELECT * FROM `character`...
