1. this:
        print("<option value=\"$row[0]\">$row[0]</option>");
 should be this:
        print("<option value=\"{$row[0]}\">{$row[0]}</option>");
 or like this:
        echo '<option value="'.$row[0].'">'.$row[0].'</option>');

The reason for it is that within double quote you can parse for 'simple'
variables only (es: $var, not $var[]). Otherwise it gives you a parse
error.

2. this: 
        mysql_connect ('localhost', 'root', 'monty');
 better be this: 
        mysql_connect ('localhost', '****', '****'); // for security
reasons obviously, you don't wanna give the password our to the group,
even so it is your local server (you might not be original with the
password on production machines, no?)


Hope it helps,

Subject: [PHP] Building Dynamic Value list using ohp


Hi all,

I'm having a problem with dynamically building a value list.

My code:

<?php
mysql_connect ('localhost', 'root', 'monty');
mysql_select_db ('Heronsql');
   $query = ("select HEI from heronuser"); // LINE 22 on original script
   $result = mysql_query($query, $mysql_link);
     if(mysql_num_rows($result)) {
       // show all HEIs as options in select form
       while($row = mysql_fetch_row($result))
       {
          print("<option value=\"$row[0]\">$row[0]</option>");
       }
     }
?>

But this generates:

"Parse error:  parse error in c:\program files\apache
group\apache\htdocs\bizflyers\login.php on line 22"

Any suggestions?

Regards

George
