Darryl, I'm not completely clear on what you mean by "I need to walk table
employee and see if emp2 has a record that matches by employee number"
>From what I understand I would do something like:
$query = mysql_query("select * from employee where EmployeeNo = $EmployeeNo
and emp2.EmployeeNo = '$EmployeeNo'");
if(mysql_num_rows($query) == 1)
mysql_query("update emp2 where emp2.id = '$SomeValue'");
mysql_query("insert into emp2 set X = '$X'");
hope this helps,
