Hello everyone! I am trying to insert a student into a table (with TIMESTAMP; works with VARCHAR, not TIMESTAMP). Can anyone help? Variable $time_stamp = date("D M j G:i:s T Y"); Populate DB Query ("DROP TABLE IF EXISTS enrolled") || !$link->query("CREATE TABLE enrolled(course_id VARCHAR(50), student_id VARCHAR(50), user_ip VARCHAR(50), time_stamp TIMESTAMP(6)) Insert Query INSERT INTO enrolled(course_id,student_id,user_ip,time_stamp) VALUES('$course','$number','$user_ip','$time_stamp')
I am in the process of creating a website (PHP/MySQL) that will store products for sale. I would normally use DECIMAL as the data type but have hit upon a slight snag. The website is for exclusive use within Vietnam and they do not use any sub units of currency e.g. no pence, cents etc. Their currency is the Vietnamese Dong (VND). The smallest value is 500 and all other currency units are in thousands and the only currency seperator they use is the comma. Typically, an item may cost 200,000 VND to 40,000,000 but when using DECIMAL it is stripping the comma seperator and storing (200,000) as just "200" even if I use something like DECIMAL(10,0). Is there a specific data type I can use that will accept a value like 200,000 and NOT 200,000.00 ??
