Is there a way in phpmyadmin to set a field in mysql to be 0 if the result is less than 0? I'm trying to determine how long to pay off my credit card. If the time remaining is a negative number i'd like that field to be 0. Any suggestions anyone?

You can create a view or a query with a custom column, set to something like

IF(myfield>0,myfield,0) AS myfieldnonegative

then when you select from that view, or execute that query, the resulting recordset will have a column "myfieldnonegative" which will be the result you're looking for.

Define that field as unsigned integer.

Hope this helps

The code worked as well but the unsigned method was simpler and more error proof. Thanks
