I have the following code to search my database, I would like to display the # of results found and display it in the line of code below that reads "Search Results:" - so it would look something like this... Search Results: 10 matches found. And 10 would be the number of results it has found. Here is what I have so far. Everything is working great, I would just like to add the feature I have described. Any help is much appreciated.

            <body>
<div id="content">
<div class="contentbox">
    <h1>Search For A PO</h1>
            <form method="post" action="">
<table class="search">
            <tr><td> Search: <select name="type">
            <option value="po_num"<?php if(isset($_REQUEST['type']) && $_REQUEST['type']=='po_num'){print "selected";}?>>PO Number</option>
            <option value="date" <?php if(isset($_REQUEST['type']) && $_REQUEST['type']=='date'){print "selected";}?>>Date</option>
            <option value="vin_num"<?php if(isset($_REQUEST['type']) && $_REQUEST['type']=='vin_num'){print "selected";}?>>VIN Number</option>
                     </select></td>
<td>for: <input type="text" name="term" /><br /></td></tr>
           <tr><td> <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Search" /></td>

That's it??? Easy as that???!!! Haha, sorry...i'm a complete newb to php. One more question would be...is there an easy way to only display a certain number of results per page, and then have a next button or page 1, 2, .... buttons to return the rest of the results? Thanks so much for your help! I'm all for learning...

Thanks! I appreciate your help!
