Hello
I am trying to create a one-field search form with fields that match fields in a database, carry out a search for records which match the word put in the search button, and show the results in a table on the same page.
I have got myself a bit mixed up. Something does show, but it just repeats for all the records I have. I actually want it to list the fields in the database, but dont'know how to write the sql query property.
My table is called address_details
Has the following fields: address_owner, block_no, unit_no, road_name, house_name, local_area, postcode, price, property_status.

Any help would be much appreciated.

<?php require_once('./Connections/iwalletc_localhost.php'); ?>
<?php
if (!function_exists("GetSQLValueString")) {
function GetSQLValueString($theValue, $theType, $theDefinedValue = "", $theNotDefinedValue = "") 
{
  if (PHP_VERSION < 6) {
    $theValue = get_magic_quotes_gpc() ? stripslashes($theValue) : $theValue;
  }

  $theValue = function_exists("mysql_real_escape_string") ? mysql_real_escape_string($theValue) : mysql_escape_string($theValue);

  switch ($theType) {
    case "text":
      $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
      break;    
    case "long":
    case "int":
      $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? intval($theValue) : "NULL";
      break;
    case "double":
      $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? doubleval($theValue) : "NULL";
      break;
    case "date":
      $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
      break;
    case "defined":
      $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? $theDefinedValue : $theNotDefinedValue;
      break;
  }
  return $theValue;
}
}

$maxRows_rs_search = 10;
$pageNum_rs_search = 0;
if (isset($_GET['pageNum_rs_search'])) {
  $pageNum_rs_search = $_GET['pageNum_rs_search'];
}
$startRow_rs_search = $pageNum_rs_search * $maxRows_rs_search;

mysql_select_db($database_iwalletc_localhost, $iwalletc_localhost);
$query_rs_search = "SELECT * FROM address_details";
$query_limit_rs_search = sprintf("%s LIMIT %d, %d", $query_rs_search, $startRow_rs_search, $maxRows_rs_search);
$rs_search = mysql_query($query_limit_rs_search, $iwalletc_localhost) or die(mysql_error());
$row_rs_search = mysql_fetch_assoc($rs_search);

if (isset($_GET['totalRows_rs_search'])) {
  $totalRows_rs_search = $_GET['totalRows_rs_search'];
} else {
  $all_rs_search = mysql_query($query_rs_search);
  $totalRows_rs_search = mysql_num_rows($all_rs_search);
}
$totalPages_rs_search = ceil($totalRows_rs_search/$maxRows_rs_search)-1;

Hi,

You can debug your query (echo $query after line 113) and check in your database if you are retrieving the correct results.
