WON'T DRIVE WHEN IN GEAR

I have a 98 Toyota Camry with 91000 miles. My problem is that when I put it into gear (from P to D, or any other gear for that matter) nothing happens. The car won't move in reverse or forward. It runs fine. It doesn't make any funny noises. I still have to push the button in to switch the gears, but it's real loose when switching from p to r to d to 1. Etc. Before this happened, it would switch to different gears if you bumped the gear shifter, without pushing in the button. Any advice? I desperately need it fixed!

Somewher between the shifter and the transmission the cable and or linkage came loose. I would first check for a lever that shifts the transmission that is located on the transmission for any disconnection and work your your way to the shifter if needed.
