This works because PHP transforms the constant hi into the string "hi".
You probably get a notice on your webpage if you have it set on your php.ini
The correct way would be $FmtPV['$logid'] = "'hi'";
Notice the quotes inside the double quotes

Your error is here. You have to think inside the string. For this to
work you have to add quotes around it, something like:
$FmtPV['$logid'] = "'" . GetLog($d,$_GET[logid]) . "'";
This way the variable will have a string inside
