MySQL Question

Unknown Column in Field List. PHP + Mysql

I'm trying to add values to a table in phpmyadmin and I get the error: Unknown column '...' in 'field list'.

Here's my code:


//preparing the patch to copy the uploaded file
$target_path = "images/";

//adding the name of the file, finishing the path
$target_path = $target_path . basename( $_FILES['image']['name']);

//moving the file to the folder
if(move_uploaded_file($_FILES['image']['tmp_name'], $target_path)) {
echo "The file ". basename( $_FILES['image']['name']).
" has been uploaded";
} else{
echo "There was an error uploading the file, please try again!";

//getting input from the form
$name = $_POST['game'];
$description = $_POST['beschrijving'];

//preparing the query to insert the values
$query = "INSERT INTO tblGames (name, description, image) VALUES ($name, $description,". $target_path .")";

//opening connection to db
$link = mysql_connect('localhost', 'root', '');
if (!$link) {
die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());

//selecting a db
mysql_select_db("BouncingGiani", $link) or die(mysql_error());

//running the query
$result = mysql_query($query) or die (mysql_error());

//closing the connection


so when I enter fds as name in the form on the previous page I get : Unknown column 'fds' in 'field list'.
This never happened to me before and I have no idea on what is going on.

I think this

$query = "INSERT INTO tblGames (name, description, image) VALUES ($name, $description,". $target_path .")";

should be

$query = "INSERT INTO tblGames (name, description, image) VALUES ('$name', '$description', '". $target_path ."')";
