Hello

i am somewhat familiar with phpmyadmin

Using Phpmyadmin phpMyAdmin - 2.11.11.3 MySQL charset: UTF-8 Unicode (utf8)

I have a large number of tables and I want to search the mysql database for an id.  Specifically ID 125.  The ID is unique for a specific bit of content I am looking for.  It's an id for an "article" in a Joomla site.  

Different tables have different structures, however I *think* the item I am looking for is as follows:

Table: blah_content  Field: id  Search term 125

If that doesn't get me what I am searching for there is another search I'd like help for

Table: blah_content   Field: asset_id    Search term: 125

If you can provide me the search syntax for those two hopefully I can find what I am looking for.

Thanks

Rowby

Rowby: Are you open to the idea of a custom script to look for this information in all the tables?

I think that if we could see the response times, I'd probably be in top 10, right behind Ozo :)

Glad I could help, Rowby!
