When displaying the output of a query. I would like to use the actual names of the fields for readability instead of $row[0] etc. I have been unable to do this. I have the following quiery.

$sql1 =      "SELECT COUNT(available_qty) AS BOP_Stock FROM product_snapshot WHERE thumbnail_ID = " . $_POST['thumbnail'] . " AND snapshot_date >= '" . $_POST['snapshot_date'] . "' AND snapshot_date < '" . $end_date . "'";

And the following display line....

<?php while ($row = mysql_fetch_row($getBOP_Stock)) { echo "$row[BOP_Stock]"; }?>

I have tried several variations including the quotes and excluding the quotes to no avail.

What am I missing.
