$docheck_i = mysql_db_query ($dbname,\"DESC table\",$dbconnect);
if(!docheck_i){
//table does not
}else{
//table does
};

-------------------------------
That should work am i wrong, but it doesn\'t. I\'m trying to make an install script for my program, and i want it to check if a table exists and if it does it will say \"allready installed\" and if not it will bring you to the isntall page. What must be done here?

is your table named table or did you forget the $?
Regexp | Unicode Article | Letter Database
/\A(e)?((1)?ff(?:(?:ig)?y)?|f(?:ig)?)\z/

Here\'s an easy way to do what you want.. http://www.oxyscript...wcode.php?id=12

I have a function similar to this one I\'ve made but it\'s a little more complicated than checking if a table exists.

Hope that helps.
