Okay, well, here goes...

1) How can I update data in a table without knowing the previous data in it?
2) How can I turn data in a MySQL table to a PHP variable?
3) Is there a way to display all types of X (x being anything) data in a table instead of having to enter a specific ID number?

what you need is a good php/mysql tutorial

http://hotwired.lyco.../tutorial4.html

not the best one out there but I like it

and php mysql tutorial in any search engine works wonders.


sounds like you have never looked at a piece of SQL code, it would take pages and pages and hours and hours for someone to try and teach you from the beginning on this forum.

take a look at some of the tutorials and if any concepts you don\'t understand or specific questions you might have I would be happy to help.

Yeah, I tried that tutorial before. It\'s for if you are hosting MySQL on your own machine instead of a web server (which I use). Any code on there won\'t work if I put it on a web server.

look through here some good tutorials

I can\'t answer any of you specific questions because they are pretty broad based and would take hours to go from beginning to end.

Do a little reading and if you have some specific questions like

here is the situation
this is what I want to do
this is what I tried
it didn\'t work
what now?

I would be glad to help.
