Not sure whether this would be such a good idea. Does anybody else have a better one than this?

#main loop, gather distinct / unique category names
$sqlstmt = "select distinct(category) as category from table";
$rs = mysql_query ($sqlstmt);
while ($row = mysql_fetch_object ($rs)) {
  print $row->category . "\n";         # output Customers / Providers
  $sqlstmt1 = "select name, code, city from table";
  $rs1 = mysql_query ($sqlstmt);
  # inner loop, display those which category is from the main loop
  while ($row1 = mysql_fetch_object ($rs1) {
print $row1->name . '-' . $row1->code . '-' . $row1->city . "\n'; # output John - A36 - City
  }
}

Hi All,
I´ve got a connection, to a MySQL db, and get the following
ResultSet(Category | Name | Code | City)
Customers | John | A36 | New York
Customers | Jason | B45 | Los Angeles
Customers | Max | A36 | Paris
Providers | John | A36 | London
Providers | Mark | B67 | Madrid
And I need the report in the following format:
Customers
John - A36 - New York
Jason - B45 - Los Angeles
Max - A36 - Paris
Providers
John - A36 - London
Mark - B67 - Madrid
Any one can help? I´m a bit stalled
thx
