Create HTML table with data from any query using sqlsrv

Hi

I am trying to create a piece of code to display the contents of a query in a table, using php, sqlserver and  sqlsrv_query.

I can build the body if the table, but the headers are not quite so easy. I don't believe that there is such a command as sqlsrv_fetch_field like the old mssql_fetch_field commend.


my code so far is...

//retrieve data from query...

$fields_num = mysql_num_fields($result);


echo "<table><tr>";
// printing table headers
for($i=0; $i<$fields_num; $i++)
{
    $field = sqlql_fetch_field($result);
    echo "<td>{$field->name}</td>";
}
echo "</tr>\n";

while($row = sqlsrv_fetch_row($result))
{
    echo "<tr>";

    // $row is array... foreach( .. ) puts every element
    // of $row to $cell variable
    foreach($row as $cell)
        echo "<td>$cell</td>";

    echo "</tr>\n";
}



This produces the table body, but leaves the column names in the first row blank.

I'd appreciate any help!

thank you

mysql_num_fields  when using sqlsrv commands? should not work ,so use sqlsrv_num_fields instead
that should already be the main issue...

then, to get the name, you need to use this function:sqlsrv_field_metadata
http://php.net/manual/en/function.sqlsrv-field-metadata.php
code available on that page
