Hello,

Is it wrong to have mysql_connect() called twice within a single PHP
document, such as this?  I have been running into some fairly annoying
query failures that commute when I change the order of these two blocks of
code.  I am currently working around this by repeatedly using
mysql_select_db() to change the databases as I am needing to change to a
different database.

To be more specific, I can use the $db_material handle in doing a query,
but it will always try to search in the Labor_Log table and thus fail
because the tables have different and names.  Swapping these blocks will
have a vice-versa effect.


        //Connect to server (materials)
        $db_material = mysql_connect("localhost", "root", "secret");
        if (!$db_material)
        {
                echo( "<P>Unable to connect to the database server at this
time.</P>" );
                exit();
        }
        mysql_select_db("Material_Log", $db_material);


        //Connect to server (labor)
        $db_labor = mysql_connect("localhost", "root", "secret");
        if (!$db_labor)
        {
                echo( "<P>Unable to connect to the database server at this
time.</P>" );
                exit();
        }
        mysql_select_db("Labor_Log", $db_labor);
