The following code queries my MySQL database & sends an email based off of the SQL & then updates the email_sent field to a 0. I just need it to mark the email_sent field to a 0 where the employee is employee2. At this time, when it is ran, it marks ALL entries in the database email_sent field to a 0. How can I edit this code to only mark the email_sent field to a 0 where the employee is employee2? I have a unique id field named aid that is different on each entry....thanks for any help!

<?php 
error_reporting(E_ALL);

// BRING IN OUR COMMON INITIALIZATION SCRIPT
require_once('connection_test.php');

// WHO WILL WE SEND THE EMAIL TO?
$email = "my_email@yahoo.com";

// THIS WILL CONTAIN THE TEXT FOR THE EMAIL MESSAGE
$reminder_details = "";

$sql = "SELECT aid, o_name, additional_notes, clerk FROM assignments WHERE active = '1' AND email_sent = '1' AND employee = 'employee2' ";

// RUN THE QUERY AND SHOW DIAGNOSTICS IF THE QUERY FAILS
$res = mysql_query($sql);

// IF mysql_query() RETURNS FALSE, SHOW THE ERROR
if (!$res)
{
    $errmsg = mysql_errno() . ' ' . mysql_error();
    echo "<br/>QUERY FAIL: ";
    echo "<br/>$sql <br/>";
    die($errmsg);
}

// GET THE NUMBER OF ROWS
$nr = mysql_num_rows($res);

// SHOW THE NUMBER OF ROWS
echo "<br/>QUERY FOUND $nr ROWS";

// IF THERE ARE ANY ROWS
if ($nr)
{
    // USE AN ITERATOR TO ACCESS EACH ROW OF THE RESULTS SET
    while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($res))
    {
        // ADD NAMES AND DATE TO THE EMAIL TEXT
        $reminder_details .= "O Name: " . $row["o_name"] . " \n";
        $reminder_details .= "Assigned Clerk: " . $row["clerk"] . " \n";
		$reminder_details .= "Instructions/Notes: " . $row["additional_notes"] . "\n \n";
    }

    // CREATE THE ADDITIONAL HEADERS FOR THE EMAIL
    $mailheader = "From: The System <$email>\nX-Mailer: Reminder\nContent-Type:text/plain\r\n";

    // SEND THE MAIL OR SHOW A DIAGNOSTIC MESSAGE
    if (!mail("$email", "New Assignment(s)", "$reminder_details", "$mailheader")) {
       echo "<br/>MAIL FAIL";
    } else {
       //mail sent so lets update the database
       $sql = "UPDATE assignments SET email_sent = '0' WHERE active = '1' AND email_sent = '1'";
       mysql_query($sql);
    }
}
else
{
    echo "NO EMAILS SENT";
}

In your UPDATE statement, the WHERE needs to include something like...

AND employee = 'employee2'

$sql = "UPDATE assignments SET email_sent = '0' WHERE active = '1' AND email_sent = '1' AND employee = 'employee2'";
