why only one item return to my screen?


function GetAmount()
{
$ItemID = array(1234,6545,5468,9856,"no stock",4561,5466);
$arrayElement[3] = "no stock";
$supermarketID = 21;
 
 $i = 0;
 $j = 0;
 
 for ($j = 0; $j < sizeof($ItemID); $j++)
  {
 if (($ItemID[$j] != $arrayElement[3])
      {
       $query = "SELECT getitem_std_amount( \"$supermarketID\",  \"ItemID[$j]\") AS AMOUNT";
     
       $result = mysql_query($query);
     if(!$result) die("Query didn't work. " . mysql_error());
   
       while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
            {
          $this->GetAmountReturn[$i++] .= '"'.$row['AMOUNT'].'"';
          $i++;
            }       
         }  
      else
    {
      $this->GetAmountReturn[$i++] .=  "\"no stock\" |";
          $i++;
      }
   }
 
 
function joinSUPERMARKETNAMEnAMOUNT()
{
//SUPERMARKETNAME select value is from another function
 
 foreach(($this->GetSupermarketReturn_value as $datas)
      {
    foreach($this->GetAmountReturn as $datas1)
       {
           $data1 = "{$datas} | {$datas1}  ";
         print_r( $data1);

try this
foreach($this->GetAmountReturn as $datas1)
       {
           $data1 = "{$datas}"." | "."{$datas1}  ";

Some questions about your initial code:
----------------
  while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
            {
          $this->GetAmountReturn[$i++] .= '"'.$row['AMOUNT'].'"';
          $i++;
            }      
         }  
      else
    {
      $this->GetAmountReturn[$i++] .=  "\"no stock\" |";
          $i++;
      }
   }
--------------------
1 - Because of the 2 $i++, at each loop $i is increased by 2, leaving empty homes in GetAmountReturn. Is that deliberate?
2 - I would think that because of
<<$data1 = "{$datas} | {$datas1}  ";>>, the | in
<<$this->GetAmountReturn[$i++] .=  "\"no stock\" |";>> should be
<<$this->GetAmountReturn[$i++] .=  "\"no stock\" ";>>
3 - I fear that the line <<$data1 = "{$datas} | {$datas1}  ";>> is structurally and semantically wrong. I would think Zend Studio would catch that.
This line is followed by print_r( $data1) which implies that $data1 is/ should be an array or some kind of single value.
BUT what exactly do you expect "{$datas} | {$datas1}  " to be? if {datas} is an array, what is the output?
You might consider just "linearizing" the arrays, eg by some type of implode, and putting that into a single value... maybe putting these single values in an array
