Subject: [PHP-DB] Help displaying Column Names

Hello All,

I am fairly new to PHP but have coded in asp and for years.  I
am trying to find the code that will allow me to display the name of the
column's from the table I am using.  Below is the code where I am
writing all the data out in a comma delimited fashion, but I want to
make the very first row show the name of the database table names.  For
example I want to show the ID,Name,Address, etc...

Can someone tell me what that command is in PHP?  I have searched and
can not find anything, I guess I am searching for the wrong info as I
know it can be done!!!

<code snippet>

$sel_result = mysql_query("select * from customerdata where account_type
= '$tmpType'",$db);

//Now loop thru account types and show the one selected
