Ok I am trying to delete records from a database using an html form.  I have
2 files, file one = remove.php3 which queries the database table and
displays the current contents.  Code is as follows.
require '../scripts/db.php';
$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM cur_inv",$dbh) or die("Could not
execute query, please try again later");
echo "<table border=\"0\" class=\"table-body\" width=\"100%\"><form
name=\"rem_inv\" method=\"post\" action=\"done2.php3\">
<tr><td align=\"center\" colspan=\"3\"><font size=\"4\"><B>Current
Inventory</B></font><hr color=\"333333\"></td></tr>";
$count = -1;
while ($myrow = mysql_fetch_row($result)) {
$count ++;
echo "<tr><td width=\"30%\"><B>Type Of Car: </B></td><td>";
echo "</td><td><input type=\"checkbox\" name=\"cars\"
echo "<tr><td width=\"30%\"><B>Model Of Car: </B></td><td>";
echo "</td></tr>\n";
echo "<tr><td width=\"30%\"><B>Year Of Car: </B></td><td>";
echo "</td></tr>\n";
echo "<tr><td width=\"30%\"><B>Price Of Car: </B></td><td>$";
echo "</td></tr>\n";
echo "<tr><td width=\"30%\"><B>VIN Of Car: </B></td><td>";
echo "</td></tr><tr><td colspan=\"3\"><hr color=\"333333\"></td></tr>\n";
echo "<tr><td><input type=\"submit\" name=\"delete\"
Once it queries the database it gives the user an option to check the
checkbox and delete that record.  Here is the done2.php3 page that actually
contains the delete sql statement....
$db_name = "test";
$table_name = "inventory";
$connection = @mysql_connect("localhost", "root", "password") or die ("Could
not connect to database.  Please try again later.");
$db = @mysql_select_db("$db_name",$connection) or die ("Could not select
database table. Please try again later.");
$sql = "DELETE FROM $table_name WHERE $cars =
$result = @mysql_query($sql, $connection) or die ("Could not execute query.
Please try again later.");
