PHP: Convert 2 Field Recordset to an Array

Using PHP MySQL

I'm looking to convert a 2 field recordset into an array.

The recordset simply contains RecordID, RecordName with around 50 records.

I want to create an array with IDs and Names from the recordset so they link to the records name, like this...

$Array[RecordID] = RecordName

I then want to list a set of values on my page that link the value from a url parameter to the array.

echo $Array[ $URL_Value01 ]
echo $Array[ $URL_Value02 ]
echo $Array[ $URL_Value03 ]
etc...

The code i'm currently using doesn't quite work.

do {
$NewArray = array();
$NewArray = array($row_rs['rs_field_ID'], $row_rs['rs_field_name']);
echo $NewArray[$URL_Param01]." <br/>";
echo $NewArray[$URL_Param02]." <br/>";
echo $NewArray[$URL_Param03]." <br/>";
} while ($row_rs = mysql_fetch_array($rs));

Only URL values of 0 or 1 return a result value - either a complete list of RecordID's or RecordName's.

Thanks for any help.

To create the array, something like this will do it

$NewArray = array();
$rs = mysql_query("select RecordID, RecordName from myTable where ..... ");
if ( $rs )
     while ( $rw = mysql_fetch_assoc($rs) )
          $NewArray [ $rw['RecordId'] ] = $rw['RecordName'];


I don't understand what you are trying to do with the URLs. Could you clarify that for me?

Thank you very much! That done the trick perfectly.

Basically i've created a search facility for a site, the URL parameters are used by a different recordset to filter the actual results.

The array above is linked to a seperate recordset i've created just to add some user-friendly options to manipulate the search results.

Cheers!
