I am running a query in MySQL and PHP.  THe query worrked until I needed to put Name and Address on two different lines, can't seem to find out how it works.  Here is the code.

$i=0;
while ($i < $num) {
$f1=mysql_result($result,$i,"RestName<br/>Address");
$f2=mysql_result($result,$i,"Phone");
$f3=mysql_result($result,$i,"Price");
$f4=mysql_result($result,$i,"Rating");

Also if it matters address is the result of  a CONCAT.

the mysql_result() function is expecting a column name--so Name and Address should be two separate columns in your query and then in your processing to output them you should worry about putting them on two separate lines.

If you show the code above this section that does your query I can give some more specifics.

Thank you.  This is the query.

$query="SELECT tblLocations.CityID, tblLocations.AreaID, tblLocations.CuisineID, tblRestaurants.RestName, 			 	
		CONCAT(tblLocations.StreetNumber,' ', tblLocations.Street) Address,
		tblLocations.Phone, tblDetails.Price,tblDetails.Ratings
		FROM tblRestaurants
		INNER JOIN tblLocations ON tblRestaurants.RestID = tblLocations.RestID
		INNER JOIN tblDetails ON tblLocations.RestID = tblDetails.RestID AND tblLocations.LocationID = 	tblDetails.LocationID
		WHERE tblLocations.CityID='$Doggie'
		AND tblLocations.AreaID='$Kitty'
		AND tblLocations.CuisineID='$Pig'
		ORDER BY tblRestaurants.RestName ASC";

Ok, so in this section it should look something like this:

$i=0;
while ($i < $num) {
$f1=mysql_result($result,$i,"RestName");
$f2=mysql_result($result,$i,"Address");
$f3=mysql_result($result,$i,"Phone");
$f4=mysql_result($result,$i,"Price");
$f5=mysql_result($result,$i,"Rating");

And then you should handle showing $f1 and $f2 on separate lines in your output code (if you show me your output echo statements I can give you some idea there too).

Also, if this address query is working then you can ignore this but I normally see this line of your query like this:

CONCAT(tblLocations.StreetNumber,' ', tblLocations.Street) AS Address

Here is the output.
<tr>
      <td bgcolor="#FFDAA6">&nbsp;</td>
      <td width="325"><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><?php echo $f1; ?></font></td>
      <td width="150"><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><?php echo $f2; ?></font></td>
      <td width="100"><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><?php echo $f3; ?></font></td>
      <td width="100"><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><?php echo $f4; ?></font></td>
    </tr>

Its should print like this.

Name
Address

Not like this..
Name     Address

Ok, so assuming you want the name and address to appear in the first cell of the table on separate lines:

<tr>
	<td bgcolor="#FFDAA6">&nbsp;</td>
	<td width="325"><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><?php echo $f1 . "<br />" . $f2; ?></font></td>
	<td width="150"><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><?php echo $f3; ?></font></td>
	<td width="100"><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><?php echo $f4; ?></font></td>
	<td width="100"><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><?php echo $f5; ?></font></td>
</tr>

OK, thank you. the errors are finally gone, but I am not receiving an output anymore.

<td width="325"><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><?php echo $f1 . "<br />" . $f2; ?></font></td>

HOK I rem out the output line for Name Address and I get these two errors.....I assume the second is because of the first.
