What code do you have so far?

 

I had to make a search box for my site where you find clubs. I made it so you can search by street name, address number, borough (i'm in NY), club name, etc while using 1 search box and a drop down list.

 

I did this while basically knowing no php except that it looks like C syntax and that I know HTML and how an 'case' statement works. Needless to say I was proud of it mostly because I didn't get a lick of my code from anywhere. Thats not to say that you are not supposed to ask for help, but if you show us where youre at then someone will help you get where youre trying to go.

well basically its going to be a search box like urs and querys the database by a ref number e.g 23 and when you click it i want it to look at the database find ID 23 and then display all the persons details who are under the ID of 23.

 

e.g ID:23

Mrs Jones

34rd Street

Local Area

 

then i want to make a link so i can then submit there journey details for our local bus service we run.

yeah but how will anyone know to search by id number? to me if I were a random user of your db I would not know the difference between id 23 or id 45.

 

Shouldn't you be allowing the db to be searched with some other human readable criteria. Maybe it would help more if I understood the purpose of your db. cause no one will search via id number. Unless you are making some sort of HR application for HR professionals or something.

 

Post ur code too...
