Help with adding to data to database

Recommended Posts

Hi there ppl.

Quick question.

I am adding data to my database. But when i search the database i am getting all fields that are being searched for as well as those that are empty.

e.g. If i add to my database as follow;

table (uniqueID, fig1, fig2)
$query = INSERT in table1 values '' '2' '3.0'
$query = INSERT in table1 values '' '4' '5'

And then if i search;
$query = SELECT * from table1 WHERE figure2 = '4'

both rows are returned because there is an 0 in fig2 in row 1. Any idea wots goin on????

Is it something to do with stripping empty chars?

have you got the fig2 column setup as an INT or FLOAT or something else?

Its actually an int. What i meant was ;

$query = INSERT in table1 values '' '2' '0'

That zero causes it to be output no matter what the searcg criteria. e.g. Select * from table1 where fig2 = "5" will still output the row above. When i delete the rows with 0 values everything else works fine.

OK.

Here it goes. I have a table;
products(prodID, prodName, prodDesc, supplier, costPound, costPence)
where prodID is unique.

These are some rows from that database (apologies in advance about the stupid names ;b );

108 nokia 6680 nokia £99.99
6 nokia 3310 phone nokia £199.99
2 skyline car nissan £30000.0
3 skyline car nissan £45000.99
4 skyline car nissan £40000.99
1 tizer fizzy drink coke £0.35

When i run a query when $prodName is 'car'
[code]
$query = "SELECT * FROM product WHERE productID = '$ID' OR prodName = '$prodName' OR prodDesc = '$prodDesc' OR supplier = '$supplier' OR costPound = '$costPound' OR costPence = '$costPence'";
$result = mysql_query($query);
$num = mysql_numrows($result);
[/code]

The output is!

1 tizer fizzy drink coke £0.35
2 skyline car nissan £30000.0
5 mars choclate mars £0.35
9 car fast car lkj £1.2


These extra values are output no matter what is searched for. The only explanation is that the query is returning all rows where $prodName = 'car' aswell as those rows which have an empty field - as these do in the costPence column.

Hope this makes sense.

Any help?
