    resolved [RESOLVED] Select Order by starttime

    When i use the following code

    PHP Code:
    $sql="SELECT * FROM forms ORDER BY starttime"
    The result I get is the 12:00 pm displays before 9:00 am. I assume because 1 comes before 9. But I would like the Displays to show cronologically from morning to night.

    Sounds like starttime is some sort of character/text field, not a time, timestamp, or datetime field. The best solution would be to convert that column to an appropriate type. If that's not possible for some reason, then you would need to cast each one to one of those types within the query (which is pretty inefficient).
