Here is my mysql question :

I have 3 tables :

create table Categorie (
      IDCat bigint(21) NOT NULL auto_increment,
      Cat varchar(255) NOT NULL,
      PRIMARY KEY (IDCat)
)\p\g

create table Region (
      IDReg bigint(21) NOT NULL auto_increment,
      Reg varchar(255) NOT NULL,
      PRIMARY KEY (IDReg)
)\p\g

create table Agenda (
      IDAgen bigint(21) NOT NULL auto_increment,
      IDCat bigint(21) NOT NULL,
      IDReg bigint(21) NOT NULL,
      Descrip varchar(255) NOT NULL,
      PRIMARY KEY (IDAgen)
)\p\g

I have this query :
$result = mysql_query("SELECT Categorie.IDCat,Categorie.Cat FROM Categorie left join Agenda on Agenda.IDCat = Categorie.IDCat where Agenda.Descrip <> '' and Agenda.IDReg = '2'", $db);

This query returns several record that contains the same value, I would like them to be listed only one time.  How could I do that?

Thank you

Your table definition is not really useful :)

Just add the DISTINCT function in your mysql query.
$result = mysql_query("SELECT DISTINCT Categorie.IDCat,Categorie.Cat FROM Categorie left join Agenda on Agenda.IDCat =
                      Categorie.IDCat where Agenda.Descrip <> '' and Agenda.IDReg = '2'", $db);

DISTINCTROW is you have several same records.
