<input type = "hidden" name = "order_id" value = $_POST[7546] >

Hiya there! I am going through this course again to get a refresher and to see how much I have retained, though I am stuck on this one challenge.

Can anyone see the mistake that I am making?

Thanks!

form.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <title>Ye Olde Ice Cream Shoppe</title>
</head>
<body>

    <p>Your order has been created. What flavor of ice cream would you like to add to it?</p>

    <form action = "process.php" method ="post">

        <label for="flavor">Flavor</label>
        <select id="flavor" name = "flavor">
            <option value="">&#8212; Select &#8212;</option>
            <option value="Vanilla">Vanilla</option>
            <option value="Chocolate">Chocolate</option>
            <option value="Strawberry">Strawberry</option>
            <option value="Cookie Dough">Cookie Dough</option>

        </select>

        <input type="submit" value="Update Order">
        <input type = "hidden" name = "order_id" value = $_POST[7546]  >


    </form>

Just update the value of the order_id:

<input type="hidden" name="order_id" value="7546"  >

What you had for a value is how you'll access that value in the form process.
