You still did not RTFM as Stut told you 4 days ago. I'm pasting here the
entire conversation with the subject "Resource id #5":

For the love of $DEITY, please read the frickin' manual: 
http://php.net/mysql . You've been asking similar questions 
around this topic for the past few days and you clearly haven't 
moved forward in your understanding.

The mysql_query function returns a resource. If you print a 
resource you get the text "Resource id #n" where n is replaced 
with its ID. To make use of this resource you need to use 
functions like mysql_fetch_array, mysql_fetch_assoc or one of 
the many others detailed in, you guessed it, the manual. Try 
it, you might like it.

Assunto: [PHP-DB] resources and resource types

When I did a search on "resource(5)" within the PHP online 
documentation, I found the resource page resource.php. While 
although it lists all the resources used with mysql, it does 
not mention how resources are related to resource numbers as 
above. A query such as a row count on a table results in an 
integer value.  What is the best way of accessing or converting 
the integer value from the resource? I can't see any particular 
function in the function list which does this, without getting 
into strings or arrays, or have I missed something blaringly 
obvious, hope not?
