There are really a few ways that you can solve this problem. I would use
and associative array to do this. 

Making the array associative would work like this:
$ALL_VALUES["$year"] += $value;

To retrieve the information back you would use the following loop:

While($element = each($ALL_VALUES))
        echo $element[ "key" ]; //this would display the year
        echo $element[ "value" ]; //displays the value associated with
the year


Hope that helps, I have tested it and it works for me

Hi all,
Got a little problem here,
I have a mysql query that looks like this
SELECT SUM(value) as value, YEAR(dileveret) as year FROM table GROUP BY
It works just fine, but i need to make a array that can could do
somthing like this (know it doesent work)
$ALL_VALUES[$year] += $value;
The script is running the script up to 100 times to get all the specific
data's, i hope that you know a way that i can hold the values, and year
and later print one value for each year..
