The at sign works fine for suppressing error messages from mysql, but I usually have it at the beginning of the assignment, as in: @ $number = mysql_num_rows($result_var); Is there any reason to do this versus the way Richard mentioned (having the @ before the mysql statement)? Are there any downsides to doing this at all? I understand it can make you lazy later on and not bother doing error checking, for one... matt -- PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
