date question

Hello everyone,

I'm working on a way to add dates and events online instead of having to do that locally in the file and uploading it. The things I already accomplished is. I can give the date in this way: dd-mm-yyyy, when I ask the table it's sorted. When I add a date, it checks wehter it's a valid date.
What I want now is that when I ask to view the tabel, it not only sorts the table but also gives only the date beginning from today (which is variable, because tommorrow is another day) Until now I have the next code:

add.php

<?php
mysql_connect('localhost','root','');
mysql_select_db('mydb') or die (mysql_error());

if(isset($_POST['verzenden']))
  {
              $dag = $_POST['dag'];
            $maand = $_POST['maand'];
            $jaar = $_POST['jaar'];
            
            if(checkdate($maand, $dag, $jaar))
            {
                $Datum = $_POST['jaar'].$_POST['maand'].$_POST['dag'];
          $Event      =    addslashes($_POST['event']);
          mysql_query("INSERT INTO events (datum, event) VALUES ('".$Datum."', '".$Event."')") or die (mysql_error());

    echo 'Je gegevens zijn succesvol in de database geplaatst <br />';
            }
            else
            {
                echo 'Je hebt een ongeldige datum ingevoerd <br />';
            }
 
  }
else
  {
?>
<form action="<?=$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']?> " method="post">
Dag (2 cijfers): <input type="text" name="dag" />&nbsp; Maand (2 cijfers): <input type"text" name="maand" />&nbsp;Jaar (4 cijfers): <input type="text" name="jaar" /> <br />
Event: <input type="text" name="event" /><br />
<input type="submit" name="verzenden" value="verzenden" />
</form>
<?
  }
 
?>

show.php
<?php
mysql_connect('localhost','root','');
mysql_select_db('jvanattenhoven') or die (mysql_error());

if(mysql_result(mysql_query("SELECT COUNT(id) FROM `events`"),0) == 0)
  {
    echo 'Er staan nog geen events in de database';
  }
else
  {

  ?>
<table border=1 cellpadding=2 cellspacing=0>
<tr>
<td  style="width:300px;">Datum:</td>
<td>Event:</td>
</tr>
<?php
  $qSelect_berichten  = mysql_query('SELECT * FROM `events` ORDER by datum') or die (mysql_error());
  while($aBerichten = mysql_fetch_array($qSelect_berichten))
    {
     
      $datum = $aBerichten['datum'];

      $nieuw_datum = substr( $datum, 8, 2 ) . '-' . substr( $datum, 5, 2 ) . '-' . substr( $datum, 0, 4 );

      echo '<tr>
              <td>'.$nieuw_datum.'</td>
              <td>'.$aBerichten['event'].'</td>
            </tr>';
    }
     echo '</table>';
   }
?>

<br />

In my MySQL table I have the next fields:

id (int, autoincrement)
datum (datetime)
event (varchar)

How can I accomplish this?

Hi,

To list the records starting from today, you need to put WHERE conditions in your SQL strings by using the $today value. $today should be also built in code as today's date value as below.

Modified Code:

<?php
mysql_connect('localhost','root','');
mysql_select_db('jvanattenhoven') or die (mysql_error());

$today = date("Y-m-d");

if(mysql_result(mysql_query("SELECT COUNT(id) FROM `events` WHERE `datum`>='$today'"),0) == 0)
  {
    echo 'Er staan nog geen events in de database';
  }
else
  {

  ?>
<table border=1 cellpadding=2 cellspacing=0>
<tr>
<td  style="width:300px;">Datum:</td>
<td>Event:</td>
</tr>
<?php
  $qSelect_berichten  = mysql_query('SELECT * FROM `events` WHERE `datum`>='$today' ORDER by `datum`') or die (mysql_error());
  while($aBerichten = mysql_fetch_array($qSelect_berichten))
    {
     
      $datum = $aBerichten['datum'];

      $nieuw_datum = substr( $datum, 8, 2 ) . '-' . substr( $datum, 5, 2 ) . '-' . substr( $datum, 0, 4 );

      echo '<tr>
              <td>'.$nieuw_datum.'</td>
              <td>'.$aBerichten['event'].'</td>
            </tr>';
    }
     echo '</table>';
   }
?>

<br />

I hope it helps.

Sure, I didn't notice that in your original code.
Please change the line 21 as following (used double quotes to cover the SQL string instead single);

$qSelect_berichten  = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM `events` WHERE `datum`>='$today' ORDER by `datum`") or die (mysql_error());

Complete code:
--------------------
<?php
mysql_connect('localhost','root','');
mysql_select_db('jvanattenhoven') or die (mysql_error());

$today = date("Y-m-d");

if(mysql_result(mysql_query("SELECT COUNT(id) FROM `events` WHERE `datum`>='$today'"),0) == 0)
  {
    echo 'Er staan nog geen events in de database';
  }
else
  {

  ?>
<table border=1 cellpadding=2 cellspacing=0>
<tr>
<td  style="width:300px;">Datum:</td>
<td>Event:</td>
</tr>
<?php
  $qSelect_berichten  = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM `events` WHERE `datum`>='$today' ORDER by `datum`") or die (mysql_error());
  while($aBerichten = mysql_fetch_array($qSelect_berichten))
    {
     
      $datum = $aBerichten['datum'];

      $nieuw_datum = substr( $datum, 8, 2 ) . '-' . substr( $datum, 5, 2 ) . '-' . substr( $datum, 0, 4 );

      echo '<tr>
              <td>'.$nieuw_datum.'</td>
              <td>'.$aBerichten['event'].'</td>
            </tr>';
    }
     echo '</table>';
   }
?>
