This php block will enable me to retrieve data from a mysql database.  How can I create a link on results of the block?. My intention is to enable users to link right after a successful database search. ie link from co_name (result) to company website.
---------
$sql = "
select co_name, industry, other, your_name, email, address, country, city, telephone, biz_desc
from $table_name
order by cust_num desc
";
$result = @mysql_query($sql,$connection)or die("could not execute query");
while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
{
$co_name        = $row['co_name'];
$industry       = $row['industry'];
$other                 = $row['other'];
$your_name      = $row['your_name'];
$email          = $row['email'];
$address        = $row['addres'];
$country        = $row['country'];
$city           = $row['city'];
$telephone      = $row['telephone'];
$biz_desc       = $row['biz_desc'];
$display_block .= "
<strong>$co_name</strong><br>
($co_name) | ($industry) | ($other) | ($your_name) | ($email) | ($address)<br>
($country) | ($city) | ($telephone)<br>
<em>($biz_desc)</em>
";
}
?>
<? echo "$display_block"; ?>
</body>
</html>

Add the anchor tag around $co_name but where are you getting the URL from. In the example below I used a variable for the URL but you are going to have to get the value from somewhere, most likely the db

$display_block .= "
<strong><a href=\"$url\">$co_name</a></strong><br>
($co_name) | ($industry) | ($other) | ($your_name) | ($email) | ($address)<br>
($country) | ($city) | ($telephone)<br>
<em>($biz_desc)
";
