Writing Data into sql table/ http error 500

I am trying to write data into MySQL table but continue to get an 'HTTP error 500' page when I click submit. I don't think it has anything to do with the form but here is the code im using:

<form method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" action="rma.php">
Start Date:<br />
<input type="date" name="datecomp"><br /><br />
<select name="action">
<option value="record">Record New Entry</option>
<option value="search">Search for Existing</option>
</select><br />
<br />
Status:<br />
<select name="status">
<option value="Complete">Complete</option>
<option value="Follow Up">Follow Up</option>
</select><br />
Last Name/Last 4:</br>
<input type="text" name="nameLast4" placeholder="last name, last 4 digits of social"></br>
<input type="text" name="device" placeholder="(multiple separated by commas)"></br>
Device Serial Number/s:</br>
<input type="tel" name="serial" placeholder="..."></br>
New Serial Number:</br>
<input type="text" name="newser" placeholder="..."><br /><br />
<input type="radio" name="flag" value="yes">&nbspYes&nbsp<input type="radio" name="flag" value="no">&nbspNo&nbsp</br><br />
Warranty Expired:</br>
<input type="radio" name="warranty" value="yes">&nbspYes&nbsp<input type="radio" name="warranty" value="no">&nbspNo&nbsp</br><br />
Date Returned to Vendor:</br>
<input type="date" name="returnDate"><br /><br />
UPS Tracking:<br />
<input type="tel" name="ups" placeholder="..."></br><br />
RMA Form Upload:
<input type="file" name="fileToUpload" id="fileToUpload"><br /><br />
RMA Number:<br />
<input type="text" name="RMA_#" placeholder="..."><br />
<br />
Date Completed:<br />
<input type="date" name="datecomp"><br /><br />
E.T.A. (If Available):<br />
<input type="date" name="eta"><br /><br />
Initials<br />
<input type="text" name="init"><br />

<textarea name="notes" cols="30" rows="5" placeholder="Optional Notes..."></textarea>

<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit">&nbsp<input type="reset" value="Clear Form">&nbsp

And then the PHP....

$action = $_POST['action'];
$status = $_POST['status'];
$name = $_POST['nameLast4'];
$dev = $_POST['device'];
$serial = $_POST['serial'];
$rmanum = $_POST['RMA_#'];
$flag = $_POST['flag'];
$ups = $_POST['ups'];
$warr = $_POST['warranty'];
$returndate = $_POST['returnDate'];
$newser = $_POST['newser'];
$eta = $_POST['eta'];
$rmaform = $_POST['fileToUpload'];
$datestart = $_POST['startdate'];
$datecomp = $_POST['datecomp'];
$init = $_POST['init'];
$comments = $_POST['notes'];

$servername = "localhost";
$username = "kylezeio_admin";
$password = "********";
$dbname = "kylezeio_RMA";

$conn = new mysqli($servername, $username, $password, $dbname);
if ($conn->connect_error) {
die("Connection failed: " . $conn->connect_error);
if ($action === "record"){
$sql = "INSERT INTO `kylezeio_RMA`.`RMA Records` (`ID`, `Complete/Follow up`, `Name/Last4`, `Device`, `Serial Number`, `RMA Number`, `Flagged`, `UPS Tracking`, `Warranty Expired`, `Date Returned`, `New Serial Number`, `E.T.A. (if available)`, `Date Completed`, `Date Started`, `Initials`, `Comments`) VALUES (NULL, $status, $name, $dev, $serial, $rmanum, $flag, $ups, $warr, $returndate, $newser, $eta, $datecomp, $datestart, $init, $comments);";
if ($conn->query($sql) === TRUE) {
echo "New record created successfully";
} else {
echo "Error: " . $sql . "<br>" . $conn->error;

Thanks in advance...


I was missing a semicolon so i believe that that is why i got the 500 error, now i am getting this:

RMA Records
Complete/Follow up
Serial Number
RMA Number
UPS Tracking
Warranty Expired
Date Returned
New Serial Number
E.T.A. (if available)
Date Completed
Date Started
) VALUES (NULL, Complete, joeckel,9999, cmdr, 589437609287, l654651, yes, 1z8e983756987, no, 2016-11-21, 356928679, 2016-11-17, 2016-11-08, , hg, test);
You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MariaDB server version for the right syntax to use near ' hg, test)' at line 1

but i dont know what syntax error it would be refering to.

To give you an exact answer I would need to see your table create statement. But let's give it a go anyways. You're simply missing quotes around strings.

Give this a try.

$sql = "INSERT INTO `kylezeio_RMA`.`RMA Records` (`ID`, `Complete/Follow up`, `Name/Last4`, `Device`, `Serial Number`, `RMA Number`, `Flagged`, `UPS Tracking`, `Warranty Expired`, `Date Returned`, `New Serial Number`, `E.T.A. (if available)`, `Date Completed`, `Date Started`, `Initials`, `Comments`) 
(NULL, $status, $name, $dev, $serial, $rmanum, $flag, $ups, $warr, $returndate, $newser, $eta, $datecomp, $datestart, '$init', '$comments');";
