[SOLVED] Read and display data in numerical form


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


I've got a database full of members, and what i would like to do for my admin page is to have a paragraph that informs me with updated info.


What i want to know, or if someone can direct me to a good tut, is have a script that reads the amount of members i a from my table and simply have it displayed as a number.


over all this is what i want to achieve and the number in bold are driving by a script the present the data as a number.



We have 14 enquiries, 2 new ones from Darren Azzopardi


We have recieved 7 feedback comments


Only 2 people have had problems loggin in

Total enquiries:

SELECT COUNT(*) FROM `members`


New enquiries:

SELECT COUNT(*) FROM `members` WHERE `new`='yes'


Number of comments:

SELECT COUNT(*) FROM `feedback` WHERE `read`='no'


Login problems:

SELECT COUNT(*) FROM `members` WHERE `loginproblem`='yes'


That's the basics but it depends on how you want to form the tables and how you're handling the data.

I have set up a basic query, but i think i missing something as my result only retrieves 1


$sql = "SELECT COUNT(*) FROM contacts";
$result = mysql_query($sql);
echo mysql_num_rows($result);

Done some tweaking to the code. Snow the code looks like this.


$sql = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM contacts");
$num_rows = mysql_num_rows($sql);
echo "$num_rows Rows\n";


and it works...well need to double check but its good for me
