Ok heres my problem i am running a cgi in which i am updating a database
here it is


import cgi
import sys
import MySQLdb

# firstname (contians in order title firstname lastname)
# lastname (indicates accepted paper)
# title (indicates unreadpaper newpaper)
# email (email)
# web (web)
# city (city, state or country)
# state (nothing)
# country (nothing)
# papertitle (papertitle)
# abstract (abstract)
# cot (full paper)

sys.stderr =3D sys.stdout

connection =3D
cursor =3D connection.cursor()

    query =3D cgi.FieldStorage()
    print"Please run via CGI... Thank you"

if query.has_key("accept"):
    header =3D "Content-type: text/html\n"
    print header
    print """
    print "Well that was kind of useless you didn't even decide whether
or not to accept"

if query['accept'].value =3D=3D "Yes":
    update =3D 'update newpapers set firstname=3D"' + =
query["name"].value +
    update =3D update + ", title=3D'accepted'"
    if query.has_key("emial"):
        update =3D update + ', email=3D"'+query["email"].value+'"'
    if query.has_key("web"):
        update =3D update + ', web=3D"'+query["web"].value+'"'
    if query.has_key("location"):
        update =3D update + ', city=3D"'+query["location"].value+'"'
    if query.has_key("papertitle"):
        update =3D update + ', =
    if query.has_key("cot"):
        update =3D update + ', cot=3D"'+query["cot"].value+'"'
    if query.has_key("subject"):
        x =3D int(query["subject"].value)
    if query.has_key("topic"):
        x =3D x + int(query["topic"].value)
    if query.has_key("ltvalue"):
        x =3D x + int(query["ltvalue"].value)
    if query.has_key("tech"):
        x =3D x + int(query["tech"].value)
    if query.has_key("prof"):
        x =3D x + int(query["prof"].value)
    if query.has_key("pres"):
        x =3D x + int(query["pres"].value)
    if query.has_key("length"):
        x =3D x + int(query["length"].value)
        x =3D x * 100 / 28
        average =3D str(x)
    update =3D update + ', lastname=3D"'+ average +'"'
    update =3D update + ' where =
    print update
    delete =3D 'delete from newpapers where

It doesnt have a problem if query['accept'].value is equal to no.  the
im fairly new to using MySQLdb module so the problem is probobly really
obvious but here is the error i get the the first three lines are just
the values i used in this instance but any no matter the values i have
the problems. I tried running it in IDLE to find what it would do and i
got a similar error however changed =3D 1 instead of zero=20

update newpapers set firstname=3D"Mr. asdf asdf", title=3D'accepted',
