I have created the DB, the table shows up fine, the link appears but its destination is wrong.

The first section is an absoulte url so it doesnt need to change, but i need the last bit of the url (the filename) to change depending on what has been put into the database.

Hyperlink Coding

echo "<a href=http://absoluteurl/ ( What Can I Out Here To Make Filename Change) > ".$row[2]."

I have been trying to figure it out but nothing seems to work.

Most sites show

echo "<a href=http://".$row[1].">".$row['3'].";

But this doesnt change the last section of the url, it just changes the whole url.

Help  ???

Does it work like this:

echo "<a href=\"http://$row[1]\">$row[3]</a>";

echo "<a href=http://".$row[1].">".$row['3'].";

[b]But this doesnt change the last section of the url, it just changes the whole url.

that's because you've done http://$variable not http://www.yoursite....tever/$variable

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)
