I don't know what it is but I am having a hell of a time trying to get some
results of a query setup into an array or variable (too much of a newbie to
know which) that can be passed to a confirmation page before deleting the
record from a table.  I have given up working on this but for those of you
that want to finish it here is the code and the table structure...

[Table Structure]
id int(30) DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL auto_increment,
   car_type varchar(30),
   car_model varchar(30),
   car_year varchar(15),
   car_price varchar(15),
   car_vin varchar(25),
   dlr_num varchar(25),

[Page 1 - Queries DB table for records]
require '../path/to/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=\"rem_conf.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_array($result)) {
 $id = $row["id"];
 $car_type = $row["car_type"];
 $car_model = $row["car_model"];
 $car_year = $row["car_year"];
 $car_price = $row["car_price"];
 $car_vin = $row["car_vin"];
 $count ++;
echo "<tr><td width=\"30%\"><B>Type Of Car: </B></td><td>";
echo "</td><td><input type=\"checkbox\" name=\"id[]\"
echo "<tr><td width=\"30%\"><B>Model Of Car: </B></td><td>";
echo "</td></tr>\n";
echo "<tr><td width=\"30%\"><B>Year Of Car: </B></td><td>";
echo "</td></tr>\n";
echo "<tr><td width=\"30%\"><B>Price Of Car: </B></td><td>$";
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\"

[Page 2 - Takes records and confirms which ones to be deleted]
<table border=\"0\" class=\"table-body\" width=\"100%\">
<form name=\"rem_inv\" method=\"post\" action=\"done2.php3\">
<INPUT TYPE=\"hidden\" NAME=\"id\" VALUE=\"$id\">
<INPUT TYPE=\"hidden\" NAME=\"car_type\" VALUE=\"$car_type\">
<INPUT TYPE=\"hidden\" NAME=\"car_model\" VALUE=\"$car_model\">
<INPUT TYPE=\"hidden\" NAME=\"car_year\" VALUE=\"$car_year\">
<INPUT TYPE=\"hidden\" NAME=\"car_price\" VALUE=\"$car_price\">
<INPUT TYPE=\"hidden\" NAME=\"car_vin\" VALUE=\"$car_vin\">
    <td align=\"center\" colspan=\"3\"><font size=\"4\"><B>Confirm Record
Deletion</B></font><hr color=\"333333\"></td>
    <td width=\"30%\"><B>Type Of Car: </B></td>
    <td width=\"30%\"><B>Model Of Car: </B></td>
    <td width=\"30%\"><B>Year Of Car: </B></td>
    <td width=\"30%\"><B>Price Of Car: </B></td>
    <td width=\"30%\"><B>VIN Of Car: </B></td>
    <td colspan=\"3\"><hr color=\"333333\"></td>
    <td><input type=\"submit\" name=\"delete\" value=\"delete\"></td>

[Page 3 - Connects to DB and deletes selected records]
require '../path/to/db.php';
$table_name = "cur_inv";
$sql = "DELETE FROM $table_name WHERE id = '$id'";
$result = mysql_query($sql,$dbh) or die(mysql_error());
print("<body bgcolor=\"ff9900\"><p class=\"done\">You have successfully
removed your items from the database.");

If anyone has the time to finish it or give me some pointers on what the
hell I am doing wrong please let me know, I would be very glad to hear your
opinion and the correct way to accomplish this.  (And, yes I went through
just about every tutorial I could find on how to delete records, which by
the way did nothing for putting the results of a select statement into an
array or variable for futher processing.) Have a good weekend everyone!!!
Pissed and frustrated...
