are you sure about your syntax?

IF(condition, value_if_condition_true, value_if_condition_false)

is it really required? >>> "IF"


$query1="select pulser1_name,pulser2_name,pulser3_name,pulser4_name from net_watch_units  where serial_no=$netw AND pulser1_name <>'' and pulser2_name<>'' and pulser3_name<>'' and pulser4_name<>'';"

Hey asaidi,
as (pulser1_name <>'' and pulser2_name<>'' and pulser3_name<>'' and pulser4_name<>'';") will return rows where all of these are having values, you may choose to use atleast one of these have value as:


$query1="select pulser1_name,pulser2_name,pulser3_name,pulser4_name from net_watch_units  where serial_no=$netw AND (pulser1_name <>'' OR pulser2_name<>'' OR pulser3_name<>'' OR pulser4_name<>'');"
