Not sure but it might be a problem with that particular MySQL version. Maybe contact your web host and see if they can help. I'd consider a MySQL upgrade after googling that error message.

Did you ever resolve this issue? I think I'm having the same problem.

Hi, Newby and Dummy I think.
I have set up MySQL
Gotauto code generated, But please what do I do with it NOW, ??????.

I thought that "form" would just be inserted into HTML page
But, sorry I have no idea what to do next. would really appreciate any info
This looks good I would like to persevere.

$fields = ft_api_init_form_page("", "test");
$params = array(
"submit_button" => "submit_button_name_attribute",
"next_page" => "thanks.php",
"form_data" => $_POST,
"file_data" => $_FILES,
"finalize" => true

<form action="" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<input type="hidden" name="form_tools_initialize_form" value="1" />
<input type="hidden" name="form_tools_form_id" value="2" />

FormTools don't create your forms for you (unless you use the module "Form Builder"). What you need to do is to create the form yourself and then use FormTools to collect the data sent in from your users VIA your form.
