    Kick Start Basics

    Greetings - am a absolute newbie to PHP/MySQL and would appreciate kickstart help

    I have attempted tutorial at DMX Zone but failed without success.
    See http://www.dmxzone.com/showDetail.as...=2&NewsId=4937

    Basic Setup:

    Database: MySQL
    id Name
    0 Fruit
    1 Banana
    1 Pineapple
    1 Kiwi Fruit
    1 Apples
    0 Vegetable
    6 Tomatoes
    6 Peas
    6 Carrots


    Output required:
    Fruit
    Apples
    Banana
    Kiwi Fruit
    Pineapple
    Vegetable
    Carrots
    Peas
    Tomatoes

    Requirement:
    Depending on designated id, all items starting with 0 become bold category headings listed in alphbetical order and all associated products matching that category would be listed - also in alphabetical order.

    A working code sample - or suggested tutorial sites would be greatfully received

    Thanks in anticipation

    Bless ya heaps

    I noticed on that tutorial that the column sid was the one used, not id, but never mind.

    PHP Code:
    <?php
    $selected_id 
    0;//The id to make bold
    $query "SELECT * FROM table";//Create the SQL query
    $result mysql_query($query);//Run the query
    $while ($row mysql_fetch_assoc($result)) {//Go through each row from the result, creating an array each time, with column names as the array keys
       
    if ($row['id'] == $selected_id) {//If the id for that row is the same as the selected id
          
    echo "<b>".$row['name']."</b>";//Output the name column for that row in bold
       
    } else {
          echo 
    $row['name'];//Output the name column
       
    }
    echo 
    "<br/>";//Put a line break, whatever happens
    }//End of loop
    ?>
