Mr. Wong,
    You are no help.  As you can probably see I am NOT an experienced php
developer!!  Posting to this list, reading the manual, and scouring sites
for tutorials is all I have to provide me with a way to maybe begin doing
writting php apps.  I did read your reply about "feeding the results into an
array"  however I have not been able to accomplish what I have set out to
do.  A GOOD EXPLANATION IS ALL WE NEED!!! You posting stuff on how we should
read the manual does not suffice!  People post to this newsgroup to get
answers to problems they cannot figure out.  I am sure you have been working
with php enough to know how to accomplish anything you need, and for the
rest of us we rely on examples, etc to get it done.  I appriciate you taking
the time to reply to mine and others posts, however if you do not have
anything nice to say please keep it to yourself.  I am trying to find an
answer to a problem and reading your RTFM does not help.  Thannks again,
