Simple PHP echo statement from MySQL query

Hi there,

This a very simple question. When I retrieve query results I usually use a while statement and table to echo out results.

However in this case i just want to echo out one field.

The query:

$query99 = "SELECT AreaName FROM area WHERE AreaID= $aid";
$result99 = mysql_query ($query99);

How do I echo out the AreaName?

you could still use the loop syntax, but the fastest is:
$query99 = "SELECT AreaName FROM area WHERE AreaID= $aid";
$result99 = mysql_query ($query99);
echo mysql_result($result99,0,0);

A simple way to do this is to use the code below. This creates an object from the result of the query. If you wanted to fetch multiple values, you could set $query99 = 'SELECT * FROM `area` WHERE AreaID = $aid"; and echo "$row->AreaName  $row->AreaID  $row->AreaLocation"; etc.


$query99 = "SELECT AreaName FROM area WHERE AreaID= $aid";
$result99 = mysql_query ($query99);
$row = mysql_fetch_object($result99);
 
echo $row->AreaName;
