I am learning this script on how to serialize and unserilize information that is on mysql server.: the information is from multiple checkboxes ...and the information is arrayed into my dehu_id field. Then I want to print it out correctly but the script is only giving me last digit.
<?php

mysql_connect("localhost", "xxxxx", "xxxxxx") or die(mysql_error());
mysql_select_db("xxxxxxxx") or die(mysql_error());



$query="SELECT dehu_id FROM dehu_status";
$doQuery=mysql_query($query);
$numrows=mysql_num_rows($doQuery);
if($numrows>0)
{
 while($locations=mysql_fetch_array($doQuery))
  {
  $locations=unserialize($locations['dehu_id']);
	
  foreach($locations as $items)
   {
	  print $items.',';
   }
  }
}
else
{
 print 'No colors in database.';
}


$result->free;
$db->close();
?>

Your field is not big enough and is truncating the data. CHange it from

`dehu_id` varchar(20) NOT NULL,

to

`dehu_id` varchar(255) NOT NULL,
