Update Results

Recommended Posts

Hi, i need to know the best/simplest way to update a results table using to the lastest results just posted, such as get the teamA and teamA's points to update the following coloums:
[*]Games For
[*]Games Against

The Results will be published useing the games for such as 0 - 10 then if the points are 6 or higher then this is a win and 5 is a draw and then less than 5 is a loss.

Any help will be welcomed with many thanks.

hello ElyTTL, welcome to the forums.

couple of things i'd like to tell you, in order to get you acquanted here.  First off, please do not make threads with ambiguous titles such as "HELP Please". Instead, use a description that reflects your problem at hand.

2nd, this forum is not really here for people laying out your framework for you or writing your code for you.  If you are looking for someone to join your project, or do it for you, then head on over to the freelance forum (and please take the time to read the rules and guidelines for posting there). 

this forum is here for people who write their own scripts, and they might have a bug they can't figure out.  If this is what you are doing, then please, by all means, show us what you've got, and what the problem seems to be.

Thank you, the code i have is this:

[code]<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

$date = $_REQUEST["date"];
$div = $_REQUEST["div"];
$teama = $_REQUEST["teama"];
$teamapts = $_REQUEST["teamapts"];
$teamb = $_REQUEST["teamb"];
$teambpts = $_REQUEST["teambpts"];
$con = mysql_connect("localhost","elyttl","PASSSWORD");
if (!$con)
  die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
mysql_select_db("elyttl_2168", $con);

mysql_query("INSERT INTO tbl_latres (Date, Divsion, TeamA, TeamA_pts, TeamB, TeamB_pts)
VALUES ('$date', '$div', '$teama', '$teamapts', '$teamb', '$teambpts' )");
echo $date . " " . $div . " " . $teama . " " . $teamapts . " " . $teamb . " ". $teambpts;
$con = mysql_connect("localhost","elyttl","PASSWORD");
if (!$con)
  die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
mysql_select_db("elyttl_2168", $con);
if $div ==1;

$query="SELECT * FROM tbl_div1
WHERE TeamName = $teama";



echo "<b><center>Database Output</center></b><br><br>";

while ($i < $num) {



$Played = $Played + 1
if ($teamapts > 5)
$Won = $Won + 1;
elseif ($teamapts == 5)
$Drawn = $Drawn + 1;
$Lost = $Lost + 1;
  $G_for = $G_for + $teamapts
$G_agst = $G_agst + $teambpts
$Points = $Points + $teamapts

mysql_query("UPDATE tbl_div1 SET Played = '$Played', SET Won = '$Won', SET Drawn = '$Drawn', SET Lost = '$Lost', SET G_for = '$G_for', SET G_agst = '$G_agst', SET Points = '$Points'
WHERE TeamName = '$teama'");


the top part works however the bottom part doesn't, it will probally look like it was written by a complete NooB as it has, but you can only learn, i think that it probally all wrong
