I am very new to PHP and databases and have not really had very much
programming practice. However, I am trying to create a Web page that
retrieves data from an Oracle database and uses php to display the content
in a HTML format. For some reason though my script just doesn't seem to
work, despite the fact that I know there is data in teh database that
matches the criteria, and only prints the final three HTML links at the
bottom of the script.

Any ideas? But please make them easy enough for a 3 year old to understand.
