PHP foreach loop

If I write a query that has multiple  returns, how do I write the foreach loop elsewhere?

$q  = $this->db->select('*')
					->where('id', $id)
					->where('status', 'open')
$order_item = $q->result_array();

		foreach ($q as $row)
$name = $row['name'];
$address = $row['address'];
$birthdate = $row['birthdate'];

Open in new window

Lets Say this Query returns three entries.  I want to loop them in a document.
Sed ut perspiciatis unde omnis iste natus error sit voluptatem accusantium doloremque laudantium, totam rem aperiam, eaque ipsa quae ab illo inventore veritatis et quasi
[b]LOOP Returns Here:

My Query is much bigger than this and I need to loop different info in different parts of the document

After this statement, use var_dump($row); to see what is present in the returned results set.
foreach ($q as $row)

It's a bit of a guess, but I expect that once you have assigned a value to the $q variable you can use that in other places in the script, as long as $q remains in scope.
