I guess I am confused, how does one query effect a query that you have in an other part of the page? The two queries are not related. The second thing I am confused on is: Do you want the last n records that were added to the table or do you want the last n records in a given index?

I know that I can accomplish this by: select * from table order by field DESC Limit n, but i would prefer not to do this way because it interferes with my sorting mechanism on the main page. Is there any other way to do it? -- PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php . -- PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
