Hi all,

newbie to MySQL...

I get this error:
Supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /usr/local/
blah blah blah

>From this query:
$username = "juddy2";
$sql = "SELECT * FROM staff WHERE id=".$username;
$result = mysql_query($sql);

However, this works okay:
$username = "juddy2";
$sql = "SELECT * FROM staff";
$result = mysql_query($sql);

So, I guess my WHERE... stuff is wrong.  I just want to retrieve the
whole row of information relating to a certain user (eg juddy2).  The
usernames are unique in the table, contained in a column called "id".

Many Thanks in advance
Justin French
