spaces in field


Recommended Posts

the text that the user types in would have to include the whitespace in order for the query to return "Test" without the whitespace. The two strings must be the same unless you use the method that Maq posted

If you're only concerned with leading/trailing spaces, you can use MySQL's TRIM() function on the data in the table, and php's trim() function on the data you're comparing.


$data = trim($_POST['data']);
$query = "SELECT field1, field2 FROM table WHERE TRIM(field) = '$data'";
