Number format

I am trying to add in commas on my website and I came across this - http://us2.php.net/number_format - is that what I want.

EX: 45000 to make it 45,000

Here is the page I want it on - http://www.newspapersofamerica.com/new/index.php?p=daily

$english_format_number = number_format($number);

Since I am using arrays to print them out..that is the part I am confused about:

' . $row1["sum_circulation"] . '

instead of

$sum_circulation

Thanks,
Ryan

Below is my full code
<h2>States</h2>
        <table id="state">
<?php
error_reporting(E_ALL ^ E_NOTICE); ini_set("display_errors","On");
$query = mysql_query("SELECT COUNT(*) as paper_number, SUM(b.circulation) as sum_circulation , a.state_name,a.state_id FROM states a INNER JOIN papers b ON a.state_id=b.state_id GROUP BY a.state_id") or die(mysql_error());
$i=1;
 
$a = $b = $c = "";
 
while($row1 = mysql_fetch_array($query))
{
 
    if(($i%2)){
	
        $a = '<tr><td width="200" class="st"><a href="?p=papers&state='.$row1["state_id"].'">'.$row1["state_name"].'</a></td>' . "\n";
        $b = '<tr><td class="ct"><b>Number of Papers:</b> ' . $row1["paper_number"] . '</td>' . "\n";
        $c = '<tr><td class="ct"><b>Total Circulation:</b> ' . $row1["sum_circulation"] . '</td>' . "\n";
    }
    else{
	
        $a .= '<td width="200" class="st"><a href="?p=papers&state='.$row1["state_id"].'">'.$row1["state_name"].'</a></td></tr>' . "\n";
        $b .=  '<td class="ct"><b>Number of Papers:</b> ' . $row1["paper_number"] . '</td></tr>' . "\n";
        $c .=  '<td class="ct"><b>Total Circulation:</b> ' . $row1["sum_circulation"] . '</td></tr>' . "\n";
   
 		  print $a.$b.$c;
    }
 
	$i++;
	  
}
if(mysql_num_rows($query)%2) {
        $a .='<td>&nbsp;</td></tr>';
        $b .='<td>&nbsp;</td></tr>';
        $c .='<td>&nbsp;</td></tr>';
		
		print $a.$b.$c;
}	
?>

$row1["sum_circulation"] is referencing a value in the array so you can treat it the same as a variable.

That worked! Thank you. I didnt know that it would be that easy just to place the row array within that function.

>>$row1["sum_circulation"] is referencing a value in the array so you can treat it the same as a variable.
    I never knew that.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Since you are using concatenation, you can just replace each

. $row1["sum_circulation"] .

with  

. number_format($row1["sum_circulation"]) .
