I understand you want to display the results of a db query in an html
table.  Maybe I misunderstand but it seems that this shouldn't be done by
fiddling with the database table;  fiddle with the html table instead

open mysql server
do select $result
start while loop on mysql-fetch-array($result) {
$summedfields = (sum field values);

if ($summedfields  == 2) {
else {

if ($blankfield == NULL) {
     $blankfield = "<img src='image.gif' etc>";

iterate on table row
use $blankfield and $bgclr as values the html table data cells
