Yes, this should be posted to php-db. For simple cases ` ` are not needed. It is only used if your column names contain weird characters, spaces for instance, then: SELECT `First Name` FROM Address; -- Jason Wong -> Gremlins Associates -> www.gremlins.com.hk /* A domineering man married a mere wisp of a girl. He came back from his honeymoon a chastened man. He'd become aware of the will of the wisp. */ -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
