Numbers Vs. Characters in MySQL Database

Hi,

I have a productid field in a MySQL database. When I use a number, say 1, the below code works fine:

$prod_info = mysql_fetch_array(mysql_query("SELECT * FROM products WHERE productid = ".$_GET['product']));

When I use a character, say a, this line of code gets the error message:

Warning: mysql_fetch_array(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /home/.....html/product.php on line 15

The reason I am changing productid from numbers to characters is for search engines. The URL will be www.site.co.uk/productname rather than www.site.co.uk/123

Hope this is a simple problem to fix,

Matt.
