Help with assignment
I am taking a database course, and I have an assignment that I hope someone can point me in the right direction.
Write a PHP program that allows the user to select fields and number of records they want displayed from a database and then displays them in HTML format.
That is all I'm going off of, so I apologize if it's vague. I can connect to a db fine, I am lost as how to get the user to query and then return the results.
you have to create html form and then pass the data from the to your query,
It will look similar to this:
<form action="" method="POST">
Choose a field:
Number of records:
<input type="text" name="number" />
<input type="submit" name="ok" value="show" />
It is not checking the any error or something, if you want more functional script write to PM.
$query=mysql_query("SELECT ".$field." FROM `yourDB` limit 0,".$num." ");
