    error in code for updating records

    I'm trying to update records that are stored in my db on products. what I am doing is I am clicking on an image of a product to update. When I click on a product it brings me to my admin_update2.php page and passes in the value of shopName and prodId. I can see from the url that these values are being passed through ok. However I am getting an error saying

    Parse error: parse error, unexpected $ in /home/c/ciaracousins/public_html/admin_update2.php on line 143

    line 143 is just a blank line at the very bottom of my page. Any idea what is wrong with this??

    $prodId = $_GET['prodId']; 
    $sql = "select * from product where prodId = '$prodId'";
    //$result = mysql_query($sql,$conn) or die(mysql_error()); 
    if (isset($_POST['submittedUpdate'])) 
        $prodId         = mysql_real_escape_string(trim($_POST['prodId'])); 
        $sName          = mysql_real_escape_string(trim($_POST['shopName'])); 
        $dept           = mysql_real_escape_string(trim($_POST['dept'])); 
        $brand          = mysql_real_escape_string(trim($_POST['brand']));
        $type           = mysql_real_escape_string(trim($_POST['type'])); 
        $image          = mysql_real_escape_string(trim($_POST['image'])); 
        $price          = mysql_real_escape_string(trim($_POST['price'])); 
    		$query2 = "UPDATE product SET prodName='$prodName', dept='$dept', brand='$brand', type='$type', image='$image', price='$price' WHERE prodId ='$prodId' and shopName='$shopName'";
    $query = "SELECT * FROM product WHERE prodId = '$prodId'";
    if ($result = mysql_query($query)) 
        $row = mysql_fetch_array($result, MYSQL_ASSOC)

    Nearly always this means you haven't enclosed code blocks properly with the {} brackets. In your case, you have two "if" blocks, but only one closing } bracket.
