I am new to programming, but here it goes. I am building a flex web application that connects to a mysql database using PHP. I currently use two diffrent styles to send data back and forth, Http Service & the built in data services. I find that Http service is by far the easiest way to go for me, but I have run into a situation Im not sure about. Would it be better to have a few big PHP files with a lot of code in them, or several smaller php files that have the diffrent services broken up.

For instance if i have table A & table B in my database i could make one php file for each table or should I combine them and use a bunch of if commands.  

Either way would work for me I am just looking for best practices.

have a look at classes and functions... for example I use a mysql class and a table class they deliver the content ... I just create a query and call the classes.. if I don't want a table but a list I can just change 1 line.

so multiple files yes. short functions in object oriented classes yes.

inline script as little as possible. try to make functions you can re-use
