mysql_query returns an array, not simply a string ... my recommendation is do your error checking near your mysql_query statement (i.e. if(!mysql_query(whatever) die();) then do an else to loop through the results.
loop using mysql_fetch_row(RESULT), where result is your "RESOURCE ID", echoing RESULT[x]. hope this helps. Matthew Moldvan.
