$sql = "SELECT WhatYouWant FROM NameOfTable WHERE id='Something you are searching for'";
$query = mysql_query($sql) or die(mysql_error());
$row = mysql_fetch_object($query);
$id = htmlspecialchars($row->id);

echo "$id";

Hi,

I have a form containing customer details.Once user(Junior staff member) has clicked on "Open Account" button the data has been saved in the database.

Therafter when a supervisor logged in he should be able to verify the customer details.Therefore he should be able to view the details before he verifies.I want data to be displayed in a seperate form with different text fields.

Furthermore i also want to know how he can modify customer details if some mistakes done by the junior staff member.

Thanks,
Heshan.

This is the code for retrieving data.

<?php

$connect=mysql_connect("localhost","root","");
mysql_select_db("bank",$connect) or 
   die ("could not select database");
   
$query = "select * from customer";
$result = mysql_query($query) or die(mysql_error());
while ($row=mysql_fetch_array($result)){
	  $nic = $row['nic'];
	  $full_name = $row['full_name'];
	  $name_with_initials = $row['name_with_initials'];
	  $address = $row['address'];
	  $contact_number = $row['contact_number'];
	  $gender = $row['gender'];
	  
	  echo $nic."<br> ".$full_name."<br> ".$name_with_initials."<br> ".$address."<br> ".$contact_number."<br> ".$gender."<br>";
	 
	
}
?>

This works perfectly. I want this to be included with my text boxes in the form.

Here is some fields of the form.

<tr height="30">
          <td width="2%" height="35">&nbsp;</td>
          <td width="43%" class="title02" align="left">National ID</td>
          <td width="53%" class="attribute1" align="left">[B]<input type="text" name="nic" size="30" class="attribute1" />[/B]</td>
          <td width="2%">&nbsp;</td>
        </tr>

<tr height="30">
          <td height="33">&nbsp;</td>
          <td width="43%" class="title02" align="left">Full Name</td>
          <td width="53%" class="attribute1" align="left">[B][B]<input type="text" name="full_name" size="50" class="attribute1" />[/B][/B]</td>
          <td width="2%">&nbsp;</td>
        </tr>

How these lines will modify in order to include data to the text boxes??

Thanks,
Heshan.

I tried that.

The same value of "<?=$nic?>" will come as it is inside the text boxes.
The above code i mentioned list the values nicely. But these values are not entered to the text boxes in my form. I think that my code will also has to be changed according to your coding.

Can you say what are the modifications that need to be done to my above code?

Thanks,
Heshan
