I just finished making my php working with mssql. Now I am using this to connect to the mssql database

<?php
 
$conn = mssql_connect('localhost','user','pass') or die("password error");
 
if($conn)
{
    echo "Connected Successfully!";
}
else
{
    echo "Connection Failed!";
      echo mssql_error();
}

?>

what i want to check now is that if it is connected to the database then show the data in the table called mytable. the fields in the table are FirstName, LastName, Email, Zip

Thanks

hi syedasimmeesag,

How about something like below?
<?php
 
$conn = mssql_connect('localhost','user','pass') or die("password error");
 
if($conn)
{
    echo "Connected Successfully!";
}
else
{
    echo "Connection Failed!";
      echo mssql_error();
}
 
$query = "SELECT * FROM mytable";
 
$result = mssql_query($query);
 
while($row = mssql_fetch_array($result))
{
	echo $row["FirstName"] . " " . $row["LastName"] . " " . $row["Email"] . " " . $row["Zip"] . "<br>";
}
mssql_close();
?>

I'm sorry, didn't see that you want it in a table, something like this then should work.
<?php
 
$conn = mssql_connect('localhost','user','pass') or die("password error");
 
if($conn)
{
    echo "Connected Successfully!";
}
else
{
    echo "Connection Failed!";
      echo mssql_error();
}
 
$query = "SELECT * FROM mytable";
 
$result = mssql_query($query);
echo "<table>"
while($row = mssql_fetch_array($result))
{
	echo "<tr><td>" . $row["FirstName"] . "</td><td>" . $row["LastName"] . "</td><td>" . $row["Email"] . "</td><td>" . $row["Zip"] . "</td></tr>";
}
echo "</table>"
mssql_close();
?>

Is it stored properly in the database? What field type is it and does the field contain any foreign characters?

Doesn't look like there is anything wrong with your code, can you see the ID properly through the database? If your password is being echoed out properly, there's no reason why the ID is not.
