## Form input into MySql database

Hello everyone,
I have been trying to get a form to send data to a database. The page the form is on is called "process.php" that info is sent to "form2mail.php" page. The script below is on that page. I don't get an error message but the data is not in the database when I check to see if it was submited.I am using PHPMyAdmin to check the database (if that helps) Please help

\$dbh=mysql_connect ("localhost", "user", "password") or die ('I cannot connect to the database because: ' . mysql_error());
mysql_select_db ("db_name");

\$sql = 'INSERT INTO `0rders` (`firstname`, `lastname`, `address1`, `city`, `state`, `zipcode`, `phonenumber`, `email`, `label38`, `label58`, `labelone`, `textline1`, `textline2`, `textline3`, `textline4`, `bgcolor`, `textcolor`, `motif`) VALUES (''\$firstname'', ''\$lastname'', ''\$address1'', ''\$city'', ''\$state'', ''\$zipcode'', ''\$phonenumber'', ''\$email'', ''\$label38'', ''\$label58'', ''\$labelone'', ''\$textline1'', ''\$textline2'', ''\$textline3'', ''\$textline4'', ''\$bgcolor'', ''\$textcolor'', ''\$motif'')';
