Dear Experts,

I think there is a way to fetch the data from the database without using "while"
how should I use it if it is a one row of data.

$result3 = mysql_query($sql3)
or die(mysql_error());  

while($row = mysql_fetch_array( $result3 )) {
      // Print out the contents of each row into a table
      $datacity = $row['rt_value'];
      echo $datacity;
      
       }

You should still check for errors of mysql_fetch_array, so there is not much change but replace while with "if" and you'll only get one row:

$result3 = mysql_query($sql3)
or die(mysql_error());  

if ($row = mysql_fetch_array( $result3 ))
{
      // Print out the contents of each row into a table
      $datacity = $row['rt_value'];
      echo $datacity;  
}

To get single record, you can use mysql_result
$result3 = mysql_query($sql3)
or die(mysql_error());  

$row = mysql_result($result3, 0); 

$datacity = $row['rt_value'];
echo $datacity;

U can use mysql_fetch_object function.

$result3 = mysql_query($sql3) or die(mysql_error());  
$obj =mysql_fetch_object($result3);

echo $obj->YOURLCOLUM1;
echo $obj->COLUMN2;

If your query returns more than zero rows of data, you want to use while() for processing the row(s).  If you want to retrieve only one row of data, you can add the LIMIT 1 clause to your query.  There is no need or advantage to write different PHP code for one or more rows.  In fact, there is the disadvantage that you would have more code to maintain, you could not copy code, etc.
