    Question Easy mysql dynamic table name.

    Hi everybody,
    I just want to learn this, I have $country_name variable in my code and if $country_name=turkey, I need to create a table in database as turkey_ip because of this I wrote below code and it works good. But I wonder is there a way to not create $_ip variable. I mean I want to use $country_name variable and _ip string in mysql query so ı do not need one extra variable.




    PHP Code:
    $_ip=$country_name.'_ip';
            
            
    mysql_query("CREATE TABLE $_ip 
    (
       id INT UNSIGNED NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,
       p1 VARCHAR(50),
       p2 VARCHAR(50),
       p3 VARCHAR(50),
       p4 VARCHAR(50),
       p5 VARCHAR(50)
    )"
    );

    mysql_query("CREATE TABLE {$country_name}_ip
    (
    id INT UNSIGNED NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,
    p1 VARCHAR(50),
    p2 VARCHAR(50),
    p3 VARCHAR(50),

    Generally speaking, I probably would not recommend creating a separate table. Instead, use one table, and include in it a column for 'country' in this case, or probably to be even better normalized, a key to a row in a separate table that is just a country list. Then if you create an index on that column, it's a snap to get all entries for a given country from the single table (as opposed to ending up with dozens, maybe hundreds of separate tables, each with the same basic purpose.
    Code:
    country
    ===============
    id  name
    --  ----------------
    1   turkey
    2   greece
    3   italy
    (etc....)
    
    ip_table
    ================
    id  country_id  p1  p2  p3  p4  p5
    --  ----------  --  --  --  --  --
    1   1           ?   ?   ?   ?   ?
    2   1           ?   ?   ?   ?   ?
    3   3           ?   ?   ?   ?   ?
    4   2           ?   ?   ?   ?   ?
    5   3           ?   ?   ?   ?   ?
    6   2           ?   ?   ?   ?   ?
    (etc....)
    Then in this example, to get all records from ip_table for Turkey:
    Code:
    SELECT * FROM ip_table
    INNER JOIN country ON ip_table.country_id = country.id
    WHERE country.name = 'turkey'
