I'm working with a NuSOAP client to bring back data from a web service.  The array I get back looks like this (shortened for readability):

Array
(
    [count] => 1
    [data] => Array
        (
            [0] => Array
                (
                    [accountCreatedDate] => 2014-03-04T23:49:39.459Z
                    [accountDefinedValues] => Array
                        (
                            [0] => Array
                                (
                                    [dataType] => 0
                                    [displayType] => 2
                                    [fieldName] => Attributes
                                    [fieldRef] => 24281.0.2664
                                    [value] => Sample Attribute
                                    [valueRef] => 24281.0.5668899
                                )

                        )
                )
        )
) 

Open in new window


I currently have the following set up to look for values in the Attributes array so I can add them all to one field in MySQL as a comma-separated list:

                foreach ($data['accountDefinedValues'] as $arr)
                {
                    if ($arr['fieldName'] != 'Attributes') continue;
                    $qry->attributes = $qry->attributes.$arr['value'].", ";
                    break;
                }

Open in new window



The problem I'm having is that the $qry->attributes variable is only capturing one of the values.  There could be 20 different Attributes that are brought back under the accountDefinedValues array.  

How do I loop through or concat all of them into the $qry->attribues field as a comma-separated list?

Help is much appreciated.

Remove "break;" from the code!  All of the PHP instructions are documented online in the man pages.  If you're not 100% sure what an instruction is doing, you can look it up.  Example here:
