Hi,
If I have a table as below, how would I update the table using PHP/MySQl/Javascript via an "add to friends" button?
Say if one id was "17" and the other was "46"

Thanks in advance for your feedback.


CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `friends` (
  `id` int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
  `toid` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `fromid` int(11) NOT NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY  (`id`),
  UNIQUE KEY `id` (`id`)
) ENGINE=MyISAM  DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1 AUTO_INCREMENT=7 ;

--
-- Dumping data for table `friends`
--

INSERT INTO `friends` (`id`, `toid`, `fromid`) VALUES
(1, 17, 2007),
(2, 2007, 17),
(3, 17, 11),
(4, 11, 17),
(5, 17, 26),
(6, 26, 17);

refer this to insert data in table


<?php
// Make a MySQL Connection
mysql_connect("localhost", "admin", "1admin") or die(mysql_error());
mysql_select_db("test") or die(mysql_error());

// Insert a row of information into the table "example"
mysql_query("INSERT INTO example
(name, age) VALUES('Timmy Mellowman', '23' ) ")
or die(mysql_error());  

mysql_query("INSERT INTO example
(name, age) VALUES('Sandy Smith', '21' ) ")
or die(mysql_error());  

mysql_query("INSERT INTO example
(name, age) VALUES('Bobby Wallace', '15' ) ")
or die(mysql_error());
