Sounds like you just want some pretty basic variable substitution? As in the page is submitted with, say, state=T and you need to code your select statement like eg:

$query = "SELECT * FROM tbl WHERE state = '".$_REQUEST['state']."'";

then execute this query in your DB call.

Does that help?


How do I write a link which results in a page with part of the data in the mysql table and do that multiple times on a single php script page? That is, I want to be able to click on state names on a single page and bring up a page with only that state's data. I understand use of the "where" limitation, but I don't see how to code a line which will override the base "select" statement for the script. Thanks.
