    If you correct the spelling of "method" does anything change?

    Is this the entire form? I'm confused as to why you are trying to use
    form-data if you only have a text field. Also, do you have the global
    variables set up so that $submit refers to the form post data? Usually
    you'd have to use $_POST['submit'] - you could try that?
    If method is spelt wrong in your code too though then thats your first thing
    to check.

    And perhaps give the submit element a value?

    <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit Button"/>

    the method typo was purely on this only, it's spelled correctly on my
    page.
    i have also tried to give submit a value - no dice.
    the entire form is fairly long and contains many fields, one of them
    being a file type. But if this page wont work the real one wont
    either. I have done a $arr = get_defined_vars();print_r($arr); and
    can't find the $mytext variable anywhere either.

    note.. this code worked with:
    <form method="post" action="test.php">
    but not with
    <form enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post" action="test.php">
    i don't understand why this would happen.
    maybe it's something specific to this server as i have used the
    enctype="multi..." on a different server and it's worked fine.
