MySQL separate result rows in PHP to store as separate session variables

I have a MySQL query that always outputs 10 result rows.

see attached code snippet for my query.

I need to pass the cell value from the first column (articleID) of each result row into distinct different session variables for use in other pages:

$_SESSION['var_01_articleID']
$_SESSION['var_02_articleID']
$_SESSION['var_03_articleID']
$_SESSION['var_04_articleID']
$_SESSION['var_05_articleID']
$_SESSION['var_06_articleID']
$_SESSION['var_07_articleID']
$_SESSION['var_08_articleID']
$_SESSION['var_09_articleID']
$_SESSION['var_10_articleID']

How do i separate out the result values and place them in these session variables using PHP? Its the separating and placing that I am concerned about.
$query_rs_last10 = "select articleID, subject, body, extendedBody, image, publishDate from article order by publishDate DESC limit 0,10";
$rs_last10 = mysql_query($query_rs_last10, $pseka) or die(mysql_error());
$row_rs_last10 = mysql_fetch_assoc($rs_last10);
$totalRows_rs_last10 = mysql_num_rows($rs_last10);

Not quite sure what you mean. Can you show us some output? Like how does the sql result look like?

row   articleID
 1      12336
 2      12335
 3      12334
 4      12333

and so on...

I want to store

12336 in $_SESSION['var_01_articleID']
12335 in $_SESSION['var_02_articleID']
12334 in $_SESSION['var_03_articleID']
12333 in $_SESSION['var_04_articleID']

and so on...

Is that better?

something like

$count = 1
while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($rs_last10))
{
    $_SESSION['var_'.$count.'_articleID'] = $row['articleID'];
    $count++;
}

echo "<pre>";
print_r($_SESSION);
echo "</pre>";

I did not test the output. Might have a typo in. But you get the idea.

Quick question it repeats two of the values

Array
(
    [var_articleID] => 9356
    [var_1_articleID] => 12334
    [var_2_articleID] => 12333
    [var_3_articleID] => 12332
    [var_4_articleID] => 12331
    [var_5_articleID] => 12330
    [var_6_articleID] => 12329
    [var_7_articleID] => 12328
    [var_8_articleID] => 12327
    [var_9_articleID] => 12327
    [var_0_articleID] => 12335
)

var 8 and 9 for some reason.

any idea why?

Also its skipping the first record, which should be 12336, not 12335.

Again, any ideas?

no i don't.

12336 is the first key that results from the query, but it never shows up in the session variables. shows up just fine elsewhere on the page. no matter what i do i can't get id 12336 to set as a session variable.

any other ideas?
