php help

Recommended Posts

im really new to php and need some help with coding. I have a mysql database with a table 'users' that contains 4 fields.

'room', 'first name', 'last name', 'weight' is there a way i can create a new record for each person everytime they are weighed?  and be recalled by date at a later time?

any help greatfully received!

the users table should only hold unique/one-time user information - first name, last name. this would produce a user_id (auto-increment integer column.) you would store any repetitive user information, such as the weight/date data in a second table, related back to the user through the user_id value. once you have properly stored the data, you can write sql queries to get any user(s) information for any date or date range.
