Ok, given there are people out there that expect people to "do the work for
them", however if you look at my original post (today) you will see that I
have queried the database, feed the results into an array, then called the
array elements into my form, however simple this may be for you it is still
not pulling out the results of the array into my form.  I do believe I am
missing something, and doing homework is a part of my everyday routine
trying to develop web based apps.  The code again:

$table = "auth_users"; // names the table to query correct?
 $record = @mysql_query("SELECT * FROM $table WHERE user_id =
'$user_id'",$dbh); // pulls all records in relation to $user_id correct?
   while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($record)) { // pulls results of query
into an array correct?
    $user_id = $row['user_id']; // assigns unique names for my different
editable regions correct?
    $f_name = $row['f_name'];
    $l_name = $row['l_name'];
    $email_addy = $row['email_addy'];
    $un = $row['un'];
    $pw = $row['pw']; }
    $var_form .= <form name=\"$user_id\" method=\"post\"
      <b>Edit Account $user_id</b><br> // echoes the $user_id that is going
to be edited correct?
    First Name:<input type=\"text\" name=\"f_name\" size=\"30\"
maxlength=\"30\" value=\"$f_name\"><br> // displays text box to edit with
$f_name variable from resulting array correct?
    Last Name:<input type=\"text\" name=\"l_name\" size=\"30\"
maxlength=\"30\" value=\"$l_name\"><br> // displays text box to edit with
$l_name variable from resulting array correct?
    Email:<input type=\"text\" name=\"email_addy\" size=\"30\"
maxlength=\"30\" value=\"$email_addy\"><br> // displays text box to edit
with $email_addy variable from resulting array correct?
    User Name:<input type=\"text\" name=\"un\" size=\"30\" maxlength=\"30\"
value=\"$un\"><br>  // displays text box to edit with $un variable from
resulting array correct?
    Password:<input type=\"password\" name=\"pw\" size=\"30\"
maxlength=\"30\"><br> // displays text box to edit with $pw variable from
resulting array correct?
    Confirm Password:<input type=\"password\" name=\"cpw\" size=\"30\"
    &nbsp;<input type=\"submit\" name=\"add\" value=\"edit
user\">&nbsp;&nbsp;<input type=\"reset\" name=\"reset\" value=\"reset\">";

Any help or examples are appreciated.  Please understand I am trying to
learn this scripting language and RTFM does not help as most of the time I
post here as a LAST resort, i.e. after I have indeed RTFM'ed.
Thanks again,
