Hi,

I have a mysql table with the following fields:

id, name, story, rank

I also have 2 authors:

Peter and Paul

I need some code in php what will do the following altogether:

1st:
Select  * from table where rank = 1
Then:
From the output list I need to add the author names into the story fields.

So for example, is the result of the query above is 10 records

Then the name Peter is added to 5 records inside the story field and the name Paul is added to 5 records.

so Peter is added to 50% and Paul is added to 50%

Can anyone help please?
