"include" problems


Recommended Posts

I have a file called "inc_records.php" which outputs data from a mysql query.  It has the following code in it. 


$content = "<p>" . $record_array['first_name'] . "</p>";
$content .= "<p>" . $record_array['last_name . "</p>";


I am going to use this code everytime I need to display that data.  I want to save the $content variable as another variable.  For example. 


$_SESSION['content'] = include("includes/inc_records.php");


However this isn't working so what is the best way to do it?  Thanks for any help.

Why not just set the include to assign the data to $_SESSION['content'] instead and remove the middle man?


At anyrate, that is not how you use includes, includes execute the code. So you would need to do:


$_SESSION['content'] = $content;
