php pdo loops

Attached file:

This objct is defined in the xml file being imported:
$orderdesc2 = (string)$obj->body->ORDER->ORDERHEAD->FUNCDESC;

I have just noted that the data  in the xml file is repeated but the insert command I have only inserts once. Please can someone show me how to insert a loop for this variable
such that it inserts the total number of records for that variable from the xml file into the database

Insert statement:

$stmt = $dbh->prepare("INSERT INTO retailers (ret_name, ret_add, ret_add2) VALUES (:name, :orderdesc, :orderdesc2)");


$stmt->bindParam('name', $name);
$stmt->bindParam('orderdesc', $orderdesc);
$stmt->bindParam('orderdesc2', $orderdesc2);

//execute the query
$stmt->execute();
xmlimport-form.php

Sorry - my mistake. I gace the incorrect repeat region:
The repeat region is: body-ORDER-ORDEDRLINE-PRODUCT
If I could just see the mechanism of how to enter the repeat

You would need to loop through the node in your XML and run the query->execute() in there:

$dbh = new PDO("mysql:host=localhost;dbname=1callorders", "user", "pass");
		
$xml = file_get_contents('data.xml');
$obj = simplexml_load_string($xml);

//prepare the query
$stmt = $dbh->prepare("INSERT INTO retailers (ret_name, ret_add, ret_add2) VALUES (:name, :orderdesc, :orderdesc2)");

//bind the named parameter to PHP variables
$stmt->bindParam('name', $name);
$stmt->bindParam('orderdesc', $orderdesc);
$stmt->bindParam('orderdesc2', $orderdesc2);

$name = (string)$obj->header->manifest->document->name;
$orderdesc = (string)$obj->body->ORDER->ORDERHEAD->ORDERDESC;

//loop through the orderline to get each product description
foreach ($obj->body->ORDER->ORDERLINE as $orderline):
	$orderdesc2 = $orderline->PRODUCT->DESCRIPTION;	

	//execute the query
	$stmt->execute();	
endforeach;

How does this fit into the xmlimport-form.php file?

ie what does the xmlimport-form.php look like with this code inserted ?

The only difference is the loop. Other than that your code stays the same (although for some reason you seem to be echoing out some information before the opening DOCTYPE!). Here's the PHP part in full:

<?php 
$dbh = new PDO("mysql:host=localhost;dbname=retailers", "user", "pass");
		
$file = $_POST['xmlfile'];
$filepath = "xmlimport/";

$xml = file_get_contents($filepath . $file);
$obj = simplexml_load_string($xml);
		
//prepare the query
$stmt = $dbh->prepare("INSERT INTO q_28282860 (ret_name, ret_add, ret_add2) VALUES (:name, :orderdesc, :orderdesc2)");

//bind the named parameter to a PHP variable (called $name and $orderdesc etc )
$stmt->bindParam('name', $name);
$stmt->bindParam('orderdesc', $orderdesc);
$stmt->bindParam('orderdesc2', $orderdesc2);

$name = (string)$obj->header->manifest->document->name;
$orderdesc = (string)$obj->body->ORDER->ORDERHEAD->ORDERDESC;

//loop through the orderline to get each product description
foreach ($obj->body->ORDER->ORDERLINE as $orderline):
	$orderdesc2 = $orderline->PRODUCT->DESCRIPTION;	

	//execute the query
	$stmt->execute();	
endforeach;

//run the second query
$stmt = $dbh->prepare("INSERT INTO ret_orders (ord_linetype) VALUES (:name)");
$stmt->bindParam('name', $name);
$stmt->execute();
?>
