You should always use mysql_free_result on your statement/result % handle. Ahhhhh... Very interesting.

Right. And surely someone who so fastidiously fclose()s every fopen()ed file, even if it was opened read-only, would want to tie up any loose db ends in the same way! One last question... If I make a query and run through the results and then make another query, reusing the same result handle, should I have freed the first result before assigning the second? That is, does that handle get closed automatically or orphaned for garbage collection at the end of the script? % % -- % paperCrane <Justin Patrin> Thanks again & HAND :-D -- David T-G [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://justpickone.org/davidtg/ Shpx gur Pbzzhavpngvbaf Qrprapl Npg!
