PHP PDO not displaying records

Hi all.

I have the following php file that is not displaying  any communities in the drop down list, yet I know there are records. This happens when I added the :user_id parameter. When I just leave the :q parameter it works fine. What am I doing wrong with the :user_id parameter?

Thank you in advance.

<?php
    require("common.php");
    
    if(!$_SESSION['user']){
        header("Location: index.php"); 
        exit();
        }
$query ='SELECT BuilderCommunityID,Community FROM BuilderCommunity INNER JOIN FieldSuperAssignment ON BuilderCommunity.BuilderCommunityID = FieldSuperAssignment.BuilderCommunityID WHERE Builder = :q AND UserID = :user_id ORDER BY Community';          

$smt1->execute(array(':q' => $_GET["q"],':user_id' => $_SESSION["user"]["userid"]));
$data1 = $smt1->fetchAll();

printf("<option selected></option>");
foreach ($data1 as $row){
printf("<option value = '%s'>%s</option>", html_escape($row['BuilderCommunityID']),html_escape($row['Community']));
 }
?>

I tried this and still does not work:

$smt1 = $db1->prepare('SELECT BuilderCommunityID,Community FROM BuilderCommunity INNER JOIN FieldSuperAssignment ON BuilderCommunity.BuilderCommunityID = FieldSuperAssignment.BuilderCommunityID WHERE Builder = :q  AND UserID = :user_id ORDER BY Community');

$smt1->execute(array(':q' => $_GET["q"],':user_id' => $_SESSION['user']['userid']));
$data1 = $smt1->fetchAll();

Have you checked that $_SESSION['user']['userid'] have the expected value? You can try to use var_dump()

echo "<pre>";
var_dump($_SESSION['user']);
echo "</pre>";

Try to use bindParam.
$smt1 = $db1->prepare('SELECT BuilderCommunityID,Community FROM BuilderCommunity INNER JOIN FieldSuperAssignment ON BuilderCommunity.BuilderCommunityID = FieldSuperAssignment.BuilderCommunityID WHERE Builder = :q  AND UserID = :user_id ORDER BY Community');
$smt->bindParam(':q', $_GET["q"], PDO::PARAM_STR);
$smt->bindParam(':user_id', $_SESSION['user']['userid'], PDO::PARAM_STR);
$smt1->execute();
$data1 = $smt1->fetchAll();

You know. It may be because of the javascript I'm using in the php file that calls the above php file. I may need to include the userid in the "GET" string.

<?php 
 // First we execute our common code to connection to the database and start the session 
 	require("common.php");

      

if(!$_SESSION['user']){
 header("Location: index.php");
 exit();
}

      if ($_SESSION['user']['usertype'] == 'admin' or $_SESSION['user']['usertype'] == 'Management') 
      {
      	$smt1 = $db1->prepare('SELECT DISTINCT Builder FROM BuilderCommunity INNER JOIN FieldSuperDataEntry ON BuilderCommunity.BuilderCommunityID = FieldSuperDataEntry.BuilderCommunityID ORDER BY Builder');
	  	$smt1->execute();
	  	$data1 = $smt1->fetchAll();
      }   
      
      else
      {
	  	$smt1 = $db1->prepare('SELECT DISTINCT Builder FROM BuilderCommunity INNER JOIN FieldSuperAssignment ON BuilderCommunity.BuilderCommunityID = FieldSuperAssignment.BuilderCommunityID   WHERE UserID = :user_id ORDER BY Builder');
	  	$smt1->execute(array(':user_id' => $_SESSION['user']['userid']));
	  	$data1 = $smt1->fetchAll();
      }        



$_SESSION['action_token'] = generate_secure_token(); 
?>

Thanks. I added the bindParam as well as the userid in the GET and it worked.
