PDF Labels using PHP

Hello,

I am not an expert at PHP or MYSQL, but I have been able to piece together a PHP script to create a sheet of labels from a customer database.  I keep getting an error.


Warning: mysql_fetch_assoc(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in F:\xampp\htdocs\labels.php on line 20

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at F:\xampp\htdocs\PDF_label.php:182) in F:\xampp\htdocs\fpdf.php on line 1022
FPDF error: Some data has already been output to browser, can't send PDF file

Here is the Labels.php file.
Labels.php
 
<?php
 
if(!empty($_POST['labels']))
{
 
define('FPDF_FONTPATH','font/');
require_once('PDF_Label.php');
require('conn.php');
$labels = explode(',', $_POST['labels']);
 
$pdf = new PDF_Label('L7163', 'mm', 1, 2);
$pdf->Open();
$pdf->AddPage();
 
foreach($labels as $labelId)
{
$query = "SELECT CustomerID,FirstName,LastName,PhysAddress1,PhysAddress2,PhysTown,PhysState,PhysZip FROM customers
WHERE WSHave = 'ON'";
$result = mysql_query($query);
$row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result);
 
for($i=1;$i<=40;$i++)
$pdf->Add_PDF_Label(sprintf("%s\n%s\n%s\n%s, %s, %s", $row['FirstName'], $row['LastName'], $row['PhysAddress1'], $row['PhysAddress2'], $row['PhysTown'], $row['PhysState'],$row['PhysZip'] ));
 
}
$pdf->Output();
 
}
?>
<form method="post" action="<?php echo $_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME'];?>">
List ids separated by a comma: <input type="text" name="labels" /><br>
<input type="submit" value="Generate Labels" />
</form>

Hello,

"Warning: mysql_fetch_assoc(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in F:\xampp\htdocs\labels.php on line 20"

Means that your sql query is not correct. Check the table fields. and use 'echo mysql_num_rows($result)' after the line:

$result = mysql_query($query);

You will get the exact number of rows.

Check that.

And for  labels in pdf using FPDF, I have given a good example about that in:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web_Development/Web_Languages-Standards/PHP/PHP_Databases/Q_24292268.html?cid=236#a24060272

Hope this will help you.

And 'FPDF error: Some data has already been output to browser, can't send PDF file'

Means that there is another output is generated before pdf output.

Please check that also.

Regards.
