Mysql database update

We would like the records in the MYSQL database to automatically be grabbed and inputted into the Text fields after the login page so that they show from each row of info, one at a time.  Then there has to be a way to scroll through the existing database entries with either a forward or back button.

Lastly we have the update feature working for our records in the MYSQL database but after we add all of the variables to the script and have an array hold on to them the updates stop working...the error  log says a premature end of script headers, how is this fixed.

Well, I use a whole MySQL function set for all of my queries and what I do is the following...

   $db_host = "localhost";
   $db_login = "db_user";
   $db_passwd = "db_password";
   $db_name = "db_name";

   $connection = mysql_connect($db_host, $db_login, $db_passwd);

   $dbh[con] = $connection;

   function database_mysql_query(&$dbh, $query)
      $dbh[ok] = 0;
      $dbh[result] = 0;
      $dbh[error] = "None";
      $dbh[query] = $query;

      $result = @mysql_query($query, $dbh[con]);
      if ($result)
         $dbh[result] = $result;
         $dbh[ok] = 1;
         $dbh[error] = "None";
         $dbh[result] = 0;
         $dbh[ok] = 0;
         $dbh[error] = mysql_error();

   function database_mysql_fetchrow(&$dbh)
      $result = @mysql_fetch_array($dbh[result]);
      return $result;

   function database_mysql_insertid(&$dbh)
      $id = mysql_insert_id();
      return $id;

   function database_mysql_nresults(&$dbh)
      $total = mysql_num_rows($dbh[result]);
      return $total;

   function GetInfo(&$dbh, $login)
      if (!$login)
         return false;

      $query = "SELECT * FROM users WHERE login = "$login";
      database_mysql_query($dbh, $query);

      if ($dbh[ok])
         return database_mysql_fetchrow($dbh);
      return false;

   $vars_for_form = GetInfo($dbh, $login);

<input type="text" name="first_name" value="<?=$vars_for_form[first_name]; ?>">

All of the fields from the database will be in the $vars_for_form array so if you have first_name, last_name, etc... in your DB fields you would just use $vars_for_form[first_name], $vars_for_form[last_name], etc... to put them into the form.

I hope this helps you.
