PHP Array Looping using data from MYSQL

how can i handle data from a table in mysql with php

i have a connection to a database

and i want to have a query that returns  set number of records with 5 fields.

ID, Title, Article, Link, Picture

i then want to use these records on my page.

i.e.

Picture - Title
Article
Link

 i have wrote the following but don't seem to be getting very far on writing a loop to print the data on the page

require("Conn.php");

$sql = 'SELECT ID, Title,Article,Picture,Link FROM tblArticles LIMIT 10';
$result = mysql_db_query($db1, $sql) or die ("Could not execute query");

$row = mysql_fetch_array($result);


thanks

actually .. you need to loop through

require("Conn.php");

$sql = 'SELECT ID, Title,Article,Picture,Link FROM tblArticles LIMIT 10';
$result = mysql_db_query($db1, $sql) or die ("Could not execute query");

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result);)
{
echo $row("ID")
echo $row("Title")
echo $row("Article")
echo $row("Picture")
echo $row("Link")
}

}

Something like...

<?php

require_once('Conn.php');

$sql = "
      SELECT ID, Title, Article, Picture, Link
      FROM tblArticles
      LIMIT 10
";
$result = mysql_db_query($db1, $sql) or die('Could not execute query');

while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
{
      echo "
<tr>
      <td>$row[Picture] - $row[Title]</td>
</tr>
<tr>
      <td valign=\"top\">$row[Article]</td>
</tr>
<tr>
      <td>$row[Link]</td>
</tr>
";
}

?>
