I have the login page created that captures the userid & also an edit page that shows all info of a certain table in database. Trying to figure out when a user views the edit page to have it only show the info the user created. Making it only possible to edit info specific to that logged in user.

I have a validate session that checks to make sure the user is logged, any suggestions would help greatly.

- Thanks in advance.

Hah! I'm psychic, so I can tell him his error is on line 63, where he's missing a ';' and then again on line 245 - missing variable.

How did you... I don't even....

Here's the edit code:

if (!isset($_SESSION['valid_user']))
    echo "<h2>Sorry, you do not have permission to edit</h2><br>\n";
    echo "<a href=\"index.php?content=login_user\">Please login</a><br>\n";
} else

$link = mysql_connect('host', '', 'password');
if (! $link)
mysql_select_db($db , $link)
or die("Not authorized to edit ".mysql_error());
$result = mysql_query( "SELECT * FROM table" )
or die("SELECT Error: ".mysql_error());
$num_rows = mysql_num_rows($result);
print "<h2>Enter player ID below and add player stats</h2><br><br>";
print "<table width=600 border=1 align=center>";
print "<tr><th>ID</th><th>POSTER</th><th>NA</th><th>PLAYER</th><th>AB</th><th>H</th><th>BB</th><th>HR</th><th>SB</th><th>RBI</th><th>R</th><th>Batting Average</th></tr>";
while ($get_info = mysql_fetch_row($result)){ 
print "<tr>";
foreach ($get_info as $field) 
print "<td>$field</td>";
print "</tr>";
print "</table>";
<form method="POST" action="index.php?content=edit_record">
  <div align="center">
Enter player ID Number & add player stats:<br>
ID:<input type="text" name="id" size="3" maxlength="3">AB:<input type="text" name="" size="3" maxlength="3">H:<input type="text" name="" size="3" maxlength="3">BB:<input type="text" name="" size="3" maxlength="3">HR:<input type="text" name="" size="3" maxlength="3">SB:<input type="text" name="" size="3" maxlength="3">RBI:<input type="text" name="" size="3" maxlength="3">R:<input type="text" name="" size="3" maxlength="3"><br>
<input type="submit" value="Submit"><input type="reset">
<div align="center">
  <h6 align="left"> <a href="index.php?content=delete">Delete Player</a> | 

I tried to use a query to only find the user posts but that didn't work or I'm doing it wrong.

Here's a query I tried to use that didn't work:

$result = mysql_query( "SELECT * FROM table where useid = $useid" )

Any suggestions would greatly help. - Thanks in advance
