  1. You probably should use mysql_fetch_assoc() instead.


    Best if you used a more recent database library, such as mysqli or PDO, because mysql is insecure and is being deprecated.


    i think thats not the solution to my problem.


    my problem IS NOT that i could not extract data from table.


    my problem IS i coludn't put that data in a DROPDOWN list.


    or i didn't understand ur sugestion?????

  2. i created loop for selecting from all the rows of a table

    like this---

    <?$rows = mysql_num_rows($result);for ($n = 0 ; $n < $rows ; ++$n)    {        echo '' . mysql_result($result,$n,'item') . '<br />';    }?>

    and tried to put in dropdown menu like this ----


    echo '<form action="#" id="test" name="test">';echo '<select name="item">';echo "<option></option>";echo "<option>";{echo '' . mysql_result($result,$n,'item') . '<br />';}echo "</option>";echo '</select>';echo '</form>';

  7. sorry sir! i didnt meen to make u do my work. actually i'm not doing any work. m not in any mission. i just imagined something and tried to do it. but i forgot that i'm nothing on coding. i've just started learning php and i tried on applications. i know almost nothing about php & mysql, that's why i stuck on every step i move on. since i'm very new on coding, it was bitta difficult for me to understand, so i asked u for direct help. i didnt imagine it will be kind of asking to do work in my favor.


    but i think i got some idea from this reply and i can try my code now. i'll try and will be back.


    one thing more before i move on - 'can this be done within a FORM?' i mean select 'where' clause from a form field and data be displayed on next form field.


    thank u for ur kind support..

  8. where's your code? what have you started? what are you stuck on?


    didn't u see the image!? sorry for that. i think the attached image describes my problem.


    sorry! i'vent attached my code. u might be more confused seeing my code :Bucktooth: . (coz m very fresh on coding) please try understanding from the image attached. if u still got confused, i'will post what i've written.....


    thank u for kind reply.

  9. i'm sorry sir! but its completely confusing for me. i cant understand how is this made done. can u please, if u dont mind, write that code, for example, so that i can understand this more easily.

    what i designed the invoice and wish it to do is like this---

  10. That's what the query will have to be, yes. You don't need to write the literal query though, if the name you're searching for is in a variable then use the variable in the query to put the name they typed there.

    $first_name = 'Peter'; // change that to whatever you want, or set it from a form or whatever else$stmt = mysqli_prepare($con, 'SELECT FirstName, LastName FROM Persons WHERE FirstName=?');mysqli_stmt_bind_param($stmt, 's', $first_name);mysqli_stmt_execute($stmt);mysqli_stmt_bind_result($stmt, $fname, $lname);while (mysqli_stmt_fetch($stmt)) {  echo $fname . ' ' . $lname . '<br>';}



    thank u! i think this is now on the way to my goal.


    i tried ur suggestive code as my own like this -


    <?$icode = '$_POST[icode]';$stmt = mysqli_prepare($con, 'SELECT icode, item FROM stock WHERE icode=$_POST[icode]');mysqli_stmt_bind_param($stmt, 's', $icode);mysqli_stmt_execute($stmt);mysqli_stmt_bind_result($stmt, $icode, $item);while (mysqli_stmt_fetch($stmt)) {  echo $item;}?>

    buy it showed no result. please help finding problem.


    thank u

  11. You can format the form so it looks like table. you can use 'box modeling' in css to achieve it. Google box modeling for more information.


    sorry sorry! i think i wrote wrong.


    i wish a TABLE be treated as FORM, not FORM as TABLE.


    and more important is "MOVE EVERY DATA FROM A DATABASE TABLE TO ANOTHER AND DELETE IT WITH A SINGLE SUBMIT". can u please help me with this...???

  12. i want to try an invoice script but got confused at one place.


    how to get information from a database table with MANUALLY SELECTING 'WHERE' clause?


    i wish a code be entered manually on a form and its details be displayed automatically.


    attached is the file what i made and it describes what i wish to be.


    please guide.



  13. You can't! the data must be entered by form inputs, when the form is submitted it will in most cases go to a page, that connects to a database through validation of host, username, password to insert the imputed details to specific table and column names.


    thank u.


    can't the table be treated as form!? i mean all are coded in FORM but displayed as TABLE!


    if not could we MOVE all data from a database table to another and delete it with a single SUBMIT!?

  14. please help me inserting data to mysql database table from a html table.



    <table> <tr>  <td>name</td>  <td>Gender</td>  <td>age</td>  <td>school</td> </tr> <tr>  <td>John</td>  <td>Male</td>  <td>21</td>  <td>Oxford</td> </tr> <tr>  <td>Juliya</td>  <td>Female</td>  <td>25</td>  <td>Oxford</td> </tr><!- bla! bla! bla! --></table>SUBMIT

    I want to send all the rows' data at once to a table.


    Please guide how could it be done!

  15. thank u again.

    and again confusion continues. (sorry! its because am newbie in php or programming)

    let me explain differently.

    if 'peter' is selected as 'first name', then it echos his 'last name'.

    i understood this line. but if i want to echo 'last name' of another name (lets say 'john') then should i have to write another code like



    $result = mysqli_query($con,"SELECT * FROM PersonsWHERE FirstName='John'");while($row = mysqli_fetch_array($result)) { echo $row['FirstName'] . " " . $row['LastName']; echo "<br>"; }



    and similar for each name!


    or can i write a single line for each and every data!?

    (if u'll feel comfortable seeing what i wrote, i would love to send u the file)

  16. thanks justsomeguy for ur kind reply. i've just begun working with databases. i've used SELECT & WHERE command that was taught on w3schools. but that taught selecting with one particular information. but i wish selecting from all rows.(m not sure how to explain either)


    w3schools taught me selecting from a single row like -


    <?php$con=mysqli_connect("example.com","peter","abc123","my_db");// Check connectionif (mysqli_connect_errno()) { echo "Failed to connect to MySQL: " . mysqli_connect_error(); }$result = mysqli_query($con,"SELECT * FROM PersonsWHERE FirstName='Peter'");while($row = mysqli_fetch_array($result)) { echo $row['FirstName'] . " " . $row['LastName']; echo "<br>"; }?>


    it teaches if 'Peter' is selected as 'FirstName' then 'LastName' should be selected from same row. but i wonder if there is one thousand rows then should i have to write lines for each row? or there is alternative? or i misunderstood the code? please guide.

  17. am very fresh in php and whatever i learnt is from w3schools.


    i am trying to create invoice script. for this i wish if automatic display of "item name" & "price" by entering just "item code" be possible.


    there is a table for stock item with rows "item code", "item name", "price".

    please guide me.


    thank u.
