Is there anyway of getting data from a mysql statement and storing it as a variable besides using sessions. I have found that some of my sessions are not registering. I only need the data for that particular page. For example
$sql = mysql_query (select * from table where user = $username);
$something = mysql_????;

I hope this explains what I am trying to do.

The function you are looking for is mysql_fetch_array:
$sql = mysql_query (select * from table where user = $username);
$row = mysql_fetch_array($sql);

//then whenm you want to show the results do this:
echo $row['user'];
echo $row['pass'];
//other row names here
