I have a mysql database that lists 5 thousand businesses and i have wrote a php page that will pull back the first 5 listings and tell the person how many are relative to there seach.

So all businesses in essex will show the first 5 and say there are a total of 88.

how do i make it so that it will say there are x ammount of pages so that the user can click on the page number or next or prvious

like Altavista

Well.. you do one queries to get the total number of business

and divide it by 5 to get the number of pages.

The total records:\$totalcount=mysql_num_rows(\$result);
The total pages:\$totalpages=ceil(\$totalcount/5);
