I'm using COM because I don't know what else to use ;-)

Like I said, I'm new to PHP. Here is another way I communicate with the database, let me know if this is a better way (it requires a stored procedure):

//Assign the server connection to a variable
$connect = mssql_connect(SERVER,1433', USER, 'PASSWORD');

//Select your database and reference the connection
mssql_select_db('DATABASE', $connect);

// Create a new stored prodecure
$stmt = mssql_init('StoredProcedureName');

// Bind the field names
mssql_bind($stmt, '@category',$cat,SQLINT4,false,false,4);
mssql_bind($stmt, '@userid',$userid,SQLINT4,false,false,4);
mssql_bind($stmt, '@passwordtitle',$pname,SQLVARCHAR,false,false,100);
mssql_bind($stmt, '@password',$encrypted_data,SQLVARCHAR,false,false, 1000);
mssql_bind($stmt, '@alt',$alt,SQLVARCHAR,false,false,150);
mssql_bind($stmt, '@desc',$desc,SQLVARCHAR,false,false,100);

// Execute

Sorry - I don't know what you mean by DB class?

I'm using Microsoft SQL 2000....with this code:

//create an instance of the  ADO connection object
$conn = new COM ("ADODB.Connection")
 or die("Cannot start ADO");
//define connection string, specify database driver
$connStr = "PROVIDER=SQLOLEDB;SERVER=xxxx;UID=xxx;PWD=xxxx;DATABASE=xxxx";
$conn->open($connStr); //Open the connection to the database

$query = "SELECT * FROM eval_evaluations WHERE id = ".$_POST ["eval"];

$rs = $conn->execute($query);

echo $rs->Fields(22); //this is where that particular field is NULL, and produces the error


Because you are using COM, you can't use PHP's empty(), isset(), or
is_null() in your if(...) statement. I've not used COM for much in
PHP, but I think you'll have to do something like this:

switch (variant_get_type($rs->Fields(22)) {
   case VT_EMPTY:
   case VT_NULL:
       $q4 = '';

   case VT_UI1:

MS has developed and released a new version of the mssql drivers for php. It might be worth investigating that to see ifthat firs your needs.
