$kv = urldecode(strip_tags($_GET['key']));
$sql = 'SELECT * FROM `words` WHERE `key` = \'1ww\'';\\this works


I want to use the $kv to replace the \'1ww\' but I can't seem to get the right syntax.

echo $kv; \\ 1ww

when I use the $kv in the sql I return nothing.
when I leave it as is I return the correct rows.

Thanks for any help

Actually you want $kv to replace 1ww, not \'1ww\' (since you still need the resulting single quotes in your SQL). To keep with your current single quotes, this becomes...

$sql = 'SELECT * FROM `words` WHERE `key` = \''.$kv.'\'';


Or, changing to double quotes is probably clearer...
$sql = "SELECT * FROM `words` WHERE `key` = '$kv'";


Also, I don't think you need to urldecode() your string initially, since PHP should do this automatically. But you might need to call mysql_real_escape_string() to sanitize it.

Thanks. That fixed it right up.
