[code]<?php
include "../inc/connect.php";

$result = mysql_query("SELECT id, title, artist, thumb FROM pictures WHERE id='1'");
$result2 = mysql_query("SELECT id, title, artist, thumb FROM pictures WHERE id='2'")
or die(mysql_error());  

while($row = mysql_fetch_array( $result )) {

$thumb = $row['thumb'];
$title = $row['title'];
$artist = $row['artist'];

while($row = mysql_fetch_array( $result2 )) {

$thumb2 = $row['thumb'];
$title2 = $row['title'];
$artist2 = $row['artist'];

}

echo "<p align='left'><font face='Arial'><b>My Thumbnails</b></font><br>
<br></p>
<table border='0' width='100%' id='table1'>
    <tr>
        <td width='33%' valign='top' height='65'>
        $thumb<br>
        Title: $title<br>
        Artist(s): $artist
        </td>
        <td width='33%' valign='top' height='65'>
        $thumb2<br>
        Title: $title2<br>
        Artist(s): $artist2
[/code] This code works fine. The problem is, I dont wan't to keep copying and pasting, adding repetitive code to the file. I was hoping there was a way to avoid doing this. It would save me alot of time and work. I just want to grab the data from the database. Anyone think they can help me with this? If so let me know, thanks.

Use the while loops you're already using.

Wait a minute... Do you know what the while loop is for?

Nope, I'm basically trying to figure out how to print the data on the page without having to copy and paste all that code over and over and modifying it (thumb3, thumb4, thumb5, etc...). It's enough that I have to insert it all in the SQL db.
