Ahhh... The light begins to dawn. I only ever use while ( $row = fetch ) to go through my rows and then directly handle the fields I pull out, but I can see that one might loop across $row and for that you need only the indices that matter. [Actually, maybe I'm just too new at this, but I can't think of a practical example for which I would loop over $row... Care to help me out?] % And I'd hazard to guess that one of the most significant uses of any query is % to iterate through it's result set. Well, I typically do loop over the result set but typically don't loop over the fields in each record, so I don't know that I can agree with the weight you put on that. But at least I see why I could care :-) % % Chris Thanks & HAND :-D -- David T-G * There is too much animal courage in (play) [EMAIL PROTECTED] * society and not sufficient moral courage.
