Hi I am a newbie to PHP...

I like to know how I place a link in Call field below

while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result)) {
echo "<tr><TD BGCOLOR=\"#CCCCCC\">",$row['Call'], "</td><TD BGCOLOR=\"#CCCCCC\">", $row['Title'],"</td><TD BGCOLOR=\"#CCCCCC\">", $row['Author'],"</td></tr>\n";
}

i want to put a link for $row['Call']  

something like this:

<a href="http://somelink.com.au/RNO?Call=$row['Call']">

Cheers

and thanx in advance

that looks good

notes: with php4 globals are turned off, in your next page you have to use

echo $_GET['Call']; // WaTcH out for upper/lower case variable names

or you may use the import function, but this allows hackers to set variables in your code, if you don't initialize them it could have adverse effects.

 import_request_variables('g');


also checkout these functions

function clean_post($string)
{
  $string = trim(htmlspecialchars(stripslashes($string), ENT_QUOTES));
  return $string;
}
