Hi

I have a php file (oops.php) that calls in "mma-config.php" which contains...

global $sERROR_NO_CONN = "Error connecting to database. Check back later";
global $sERROR_NO_ACCESS = "You are not authorized to access this area.";
global $sERROR_ADD = "An error was encountered adding the record";
global $sERROR_MODIFY = "An error was encountered modifying the record.";

Inside oops.php, I call mma-config.php and want to reference the error message - example:

if ($mysqli->connect_error)
{
$_SESSION['error'] = ERROR_NO_CONN;
GoToOops();
exit();
}

However when the oops php page is displayed, instead of the error message, it displays "ERROR_NO_CONN";
I did check in the oops.php page that I called in the mma-config.php script
Can't figure out what the problem is.
