  1. Jon Thanks again for your help. I was able to use your example to work my way into a solution.
  2. Jon Thank you very much for the example. I'll give it a go.
  3. thanks Gizmola Ive got an order by now in there which is my wall of text Im trying to get away from. Its the second part of your response Im looking for guidance in - the loop and checking. Can you point me to something that may help guide me, or provide an example?
  4. all data resides in the same table, but 2 records for each week will have the same gameid so awayteam reports scores and hometeam reports scores for the same gameid I then want to view that data kind of in a per gameid table so I see them together. I have to compare their reports and if they match accept them - if they dont I auto email them with a notification of a conflict in scores reported. hope that helps clarify. right now Im just ordering by certain columns and its a giant wall of text table, and Id like to make it easier on the eyes to see the matching gameids together - if one has not reported then I only see one record, but if both have reported I can easily see a table with 2 record rows. thanks again.
  5. a simplified version of the structure is: ID (unique) gameid (records match on this) hometeam awayteam homescore awayscore week status (turns to 1 when data is accepted by admin and therefore eliminated from query results) My current query is: SELECT * FROM table WHERE week='$week' AND status='0' $week is passed via post Thanks for the help, MasterACE14
  6. I have a table that has pairs of matching records that are identified as matching on a specific column. In other words, 2 users submit data on the same record, and they are identified as matching and belonging to the same record data because the table column gameid is the same for the pair. How can I output the information for the pair of matching records for each of these into a table repeating it until Ive looped through all records? In other words I want to create 1 table with headers for each matching pair all the way down... thanks in advance.
  7. Thanks Fenway....these boards used to be quite helpful with directives, now its all like generic canned spam. For anyone finding this in a search....this is what I have learned: JOINS are used for adding vertical colums...for instance having 2 vertical labeled colums from one table and then 5 other labeled columns from another table which would create a 7 columned table. UNIONS are used for adding horizontal rows...so this is what I was after rather than a JOIN. UNIONS need the fields aliased if you want to ORDER them....so here is my final query that worked: [code]$SQL = "SELECT time as t, league, week as w, hometeam, awayteam, month, date as d, division, fieldlink, fieldname as f, TIME_FORMAT(time, '%l.%i %p') AS newtime FROM pac10 WHERE fieldname LIKE '$fieldname%' UNION SELECT time as t, league, week as w, hometeam, awayteam, month, date as d, division, fieldlink, fieldname as f, TIME_FORMAT(time, '%l.%i %p') AS newtime FROM mac10 WHERE fieldname LIKE '$fieldname%' UNION SELECT time as t, league, week as w, hometeam, awayteam, month, date as d, division, fieldlink, fieldname as f, TIME_FORMAT(time, '%l.%i %p') AS newtime FROM big10 WHERE fieldname LIKE '$fieldname%' ORDER BY w ASC, d ASC, f ASC, t ASC"; [/code]
  8. Hi there. Having trouble with a join, which then goes into a loop.  Both tables have an identical structure.  Im trying to join everything, then spit out my normal loop with just the records across both tables that have a similar entry in fieldname.....then sort all those results, by day, and time...the loop just helps me seperate the records by week, with each week getting their own table....and Im passing the fieldname variable via the url ie mypage.php?fieldname=ThisField My problem is that they have the same column names, so I keep getting Column: 'time' in field list is ambiguous...Im unsure how to solve it as Im formating time when its coming out, but I need all the records to sort on that column across both tables. [code]<?     # setup SQL statement $SQL = " SELECT time, league, week, hometeam, awayteam, month, date, division, id, fieldlink, fieldname, TIME_FORMAT(time, '%l.%i %p') AS newtime FROM pac10 JOIN mac10 ON ( pac10.fieldname = mac10.fieldname) WHERE fieldname LIKE '$fieldname%' ORDER BY week ASC, date ASC, fieldname ASC, time ASC";     # execute SQL statement     $retid = mysql_db_query($db, $SQL, $cid);     # check for errors     if (!$retid) { echo( mysql_error()); }     else {     $weektracker = 0; while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($retid)) { $league = $row["league"]; $week = $row["week"]; $hometeam = $row["hometeam"]; $awayteam = $row["awayteam"]; $month = $row["month"]; $date = $row["date"]; $newtime = $row["newtime"]; $homescore = $row["homescore"]; $awayscore = $row["awayscore"]; $id = $row["id"]; $division = $row["division"]; $homeconference = $row["homeconference"]; $awayconference = $row["awayconference"]; $fieldlink = $row["fieldlink"]; $fieldname = $row["fieldname"]; #BEGINNING MY LOOP BY WEEK AND DATA OUTPUT {   if($weektracker < $week)   {       if($weektracker > 0)   echo ("</table><BR><BR>\n");       echo ("<b><font face=arial size=2 color=#e0e0e0>WEEK $week</b></font>\n");       echo ("<TABLE cellpadding=2 border=1 width=99% style=\"border-collapse: collapse; border: solid; border:1px;\">");   echo ("<TR><TD><font face=arial size=1 color=#e0e0e0><b>LEAGUE</b></td><TD width=80><font face=arial size=1 color=#e0e0e0><b>DIVISION</b></TD><TD width=40><font face=arial size=1 color=#e0e0e0><B>DATE</B></TD><td width=60><font face=arial size=1 color=#e0e0e0><b>TIME</b></TD><td><font face=arial size=1 color=#e0e0e0><B>AWAY</B></TD><td><font face=arial size=1 color=#e0e0e0><b>HOME</b></td><TD><font face=arial size=1 color=#e0e0e0><b><center>FIELD</center></b></TD></TR>");       $weektracker = $week;     }             echo ("<TR>");             echo ("<TD><font face=arial size=1 color=#e0e0e0>$league</font></td><td><font face=arial size=1 color=#e0e0e0>$division</td><td><font face=arial size=1 color=#e0e0e0>$month - $date</td><td><font face=arial size=1 color=#e0e0e0>$newtime</TD><TD><font face=arial size=1 color=#e0e0e0>$awayteam</td><td><font face=arial size=1 color=#e0e0e0>$hometeam</td><td><a href=\"http://$fieldlink\" target=_blank><font face=arial size=1 color=#e0e0e0>$fieldname</td>\n"); echo ("</TR>");   }}         echo ("</TABLE><BR>"); }     ?>[/code] thanks in advance for any insight :)
