Hello I am working with a apache, php, mssql server.

I've installed the microsoft  php_sqlsrv_53_ts_vc6.dll driver and the connection is working.

I am trying to make a page that displays the contents of a table or query.
For some reason, each column data is duplicated. But not the column header.

Any help would be appreciated!


//display the results 

    echo "<table border=1>"; 
	
/* Get and display field metadata. */
echo "<tr>"; 
foreach( sqlsrv_field_metadata( $result) as $meta)
{
		echo "<td>" . $meta["Name"] . "</td>";
}
echo "</tr>";
		
	// get column values 
    while($row = sqlsrv_fetch_array($result)) { 
        echo "<tr>"; 

		foreach ($row as $value)
		{
			if (is_object($value))
			{
			echo "<td>"."Object"."</td>";
			}
			else
			{
			//echo "<td>".gettype($value)."</td>";
			echo "<td>".$value."</td>";
			}
			
		}
			
		echo "</tr>"; 

    } 

    echo "</table>";

Change line 14 to this

while($row = sqlsrv_fetch_array($result, SQLSRV_FETCH_ASSOC)) {

Since default fetch type of sqlsrv_fetch_array() is SQLSRV_FETCH_BOTH, you'll receive an array that have duplicated values for each row but different in keys.
Because you use foreach ($row as $value) to traverse the data, you'll received duplicated rows.
