Hi

If i have a simple SQL as follow:

Member and Post Tables

select distinct(member.memb_id), count(post.memb_id) FROM member, post where member.memb_id = post.memb_id AND member.surname = 'some input from search query' GROUP BY post.memb_id;

If i run this script in mysql it shows the result fine with each Member ID and The Toal Post Message.
However when i try to implement into PHP it cant show the Total Post Message.

So my question is how to make it display into HTML ?

This is the output from mysql screen
+---------+----------------------+
| memb_id | count(post.memb_id) |
+---------+----------------------+
|       1 |                   14 |
|      35 |                    9 |
|     191 |                   23 |
|     204 |                    3 |
|     208 |                   18 |
|     222 |                    2 |
|     296 |                    7 |
|     322 |                   25 |
|     330 |                   17 |
|     354 |                    6 |
|     369 |                   18 |
|     462 |                   12 |
|     474 |                   15 |
|     490 |                    8 |
|     496 |                   15 |
|     601 |                   16 |
|     627 |                    5 |
+---------+----------------------+

<?php

// Your DB connection ...

$query = "select distinct(member.memb_id) as MemberId , count(post.memb_id) As CountPost FROM member, post where member.memb_id = post.memb_id AND member.surname = 'some input from search query' GROUP BY post.memb_id";

$result = mysql_query($query) or die("Select Query Error : " . mysql_error());

?>

<table border='1' cellspacing = '0' cellpadding='1'>
<tr>
<td> memb_id </td>
<td> post.memb_id </td>
</tr>

<?php

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
{

  $MemberId = $result['MemberId'];
  $CountPost = $result['CountPost'];

hi i think u got my question wrong..
Probably of my poor explaination :(

I could perform the HTML output but it only show the disntinct memb_id
but not for the count(post.memb_id).

I use :

<table border='1' cellspacing = '0' cellpadding='1'>
<tr>
<td> memb_id </td>
<td> count(post.memb_id) </td>
</tr>

$countRow = mysql_num_rows($result);

for($i=0; $i<$countRow; $i++)
{
    $row = mysql_fetch_array($result);
    echo "<tr> <td> $row["memb_id"] </td> <td> $row["HERE DONT KOW TO DISPLAY the count(post.memb_id)"] </td> </tr>";
}

i hope U got what i mean.
Anyway thx for the suggestion.... :D

try altering your SQL code:

SELECT count(post.memb_id) AS mempostcount

then print:

$row["mempostcount"]
