I am new to PHP so I am need someone to explain this problem to me. I am
trying to read items from a table and store them into an array. My current
function of choice to use is "mysql_fetch_array". The documentation says
that it returns FALSE if there are no more rows returned, but yet when the
query does not return a result set, It does not return anything. So the
basic question is how do I test for a query that does not return for any
results ? Here is some of my code below:

$result = mysql_db_query ("GradAdmissions","select * from applicant where
applicant_id = 17");
while ($row = mysql_fetch_array ($result))
    echo "applicant_id: ".$row["applicant_id"]."<br>\n";
    echo "member_id: ".$row["member_id"]."<br>\n";
mysql_free_result ($result);

Thanks in advance
