Hi,

Im using Mysqli and im trying to limit the results by 10 and order them from last to first from the database.

$sqlhorses = "SELECT Place FROM `*` WHERE `Horse` ='".$db->real_escape_string($row['horse']). "'";

Open in new window


the above works but when i added the limit 6 to the end it shows errors.

Can anyone help?

Is this the table name? `*`

It's usually easier to get query strings right if you avoid compound statements and use HEREDOC notation (search PHP.net for that) or if you use double quotes.  Maybe something like this:

$horse = $db->real_escape_string($row['horse']);
$sqlhorses = "SELECT * FROM Place WHERE  HORSE = '$horse' ";
// OR...
$sqlhorses = "SELECT * FROM Place WHERE  HORSE = '$horse' LIMIT 10";
