Well... for starters if you want to be doing comparison of values you should be storing them as numbers, not strings -- the only way you could pass a $ is if it's a string, making your code gibberish. If you want to do those comparisons, you've got the wrong data types... You want it to do $, you show $ and use number_format on the output, NOT the values!
Though if we could see the structure of that table it would help so we know what your data types even are that might help a lot.
That said, I was going to read you the riot act about the use of mysql_ like it's still 2006... since we've been told for EIGHT YEARS to stop using them, and why there have been giant red warning boxes in the manual warning of their impending doom and gaping security flaws -- but then I saw the presence of a FONT tag and just went "REALLY?!? REALLY?!?!?... really...
That form is also not the greatest markup -- in fact it makes no sense. I have to ask why are you using an anchor on this in the first place, much less onclick... or slow memory wasting string addition instead of echo, or LABEL around a form (which is nowhere NEAR where it belongs, LABEL goes INSIDE a form pointing at a INPUT, SELECT or TEXTAREA with a FOR attribute)... much less method="request", which is NOT a valid property for METHOD.
Valid METHOD properties for FORM: get, post... that's it!
It also doesn't make any sense to select * and a count at the same time. That's not going to return anything resembling a meaningful value.
I'm not really getting why you even have a form, or a checkbox, much less what it has to do with the anchor... That markup is incomprehensible nonsense that has nothing to do with how HTML even works; your Query is malformed and passing invalid values, and on the whole none of it makes the least bit of sense. I'm not even sure what it is you're trying to accomplish with that.
