Something like this .. ofc needs modification to work in your DB

This is MySQL by the way, dont know what you want :)

<?php
 
mysql_connect('ipaddress','username','password');
mysql_select_db('database');
 
$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM table where field='something'");
 
if(mysql_num_rows($result) != 1) { echo 'Empty Records'; } else {
while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)) {

Hi aamodt,

I have done a little modification in your code.

<?php
mysql_connect('ipaddress','username','password');
mysql_select_db('database');
 
$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM table where field='something'");
 
if(mysql_num_rows($result) == 0) { 
	echo 'Empty Records';
} else {
	while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)) {
		echo $row['id'].' - '.$row['test'].'<br />';
	}
}
 
?>
