When you look at it like that all together, I find its easier to
functionalize the whole process




function processForm(){

                if(isset($_POST['submit']) && $_POST['trigger']==6)
                //  echo $member_no;
                  $conn     = mysql_connect($host,$user,$pass) or die("Could not
open the connection");
                  $dbselect = mysql_select_db($dbname,$conn) or die("could not
connect to the DB");
                  $id_query = "SELECT * FROM members WHERE 
                  $result   = mysql_query($id_query) or trigger_error("SQL", 
                  $num_rows = mysql_num_rows($result);
                  //echo $num_rows;
                    echo'<META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" 
                                                  echo 'Our records indicate 
that you are not a member yet, <a
href="member.php"> Click here</a> to become a member now';

}//end function processForm

function showForm(){
                <td width="420" class="whitebg">
                <BR />
                In order to be able to refer members to Infinity LMRC, you need 
be a registered member with us, Please enter your membership number
below and start referring.</p>
                <table width="410">
                <form action="<?php echo $url ; ?>" method="post" name="refer" >
                <td><label for="memberno">Membership Number</label></td>
                <td><input type="text" name="member_no" class="myinput" 
                <tr><td><input type="submit" name="submit" value=" OK !" /></td>
                <td><input type="reset" name="cancel" value=" Cancel " 
                <tr><td><input type="hidden" name="trigger" value="6" 
                                                <?php include("footer.php");?>

}//end showForm function

This gives way more control over the whole flow
