    Default PHP Update query not working

    Hello,

    I'm using a standard update query and getting an error message.

    Here is the code:

    if ((isset($HTTP_POST_VARS["MM_update"])) && ($HTTP_POST_VARS["MM_update"] ==
    "updateQty")) {
    $updateSQL = sprintf("UPDATE cart SET qty=%s, WHERE cartId=%s",
    GetSQLValueString($HTTP_POST_VARS['qty'], "int"),
    GetSQLValueString($HTTP_POST_VARS['cartId'], "int"));

    mysql_select_db($database_connMobis, $connMobis);
    $Result1 = mysql_query($updateSQL, $connMobis) or die(mysql_error());

    Here is the error:

    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 'WHERE cartId=183'
    at line 1


    I've been pulling my hair over this because it's so straighforward and I've
    used this query hundreds to times before. If you notice anything, please let
    me know.

    I would be very surprised if you have used this query hundreds of times
    before without getting the same mistake. There should be no comma before
    WHERE:

    $updateSQL = sprintf("UPDATE cart SET qty=%s WHERE cartId=%s",
