hi,
maybe you can try the sql:

"SELECT DISTINCT FROM $table....."

Your question is not clear... but
try this:

$query="SELECT * FROM table_name";
$result=mysql_query($result, $link);

while ($i++ < mysql_num_rows($result) && $rs = mysql_fetch_array($result)){
$retrieved[$i] = $rs;//It will fetch all rows under the field name you specified.
print("$retrieved[$i]");//print("$retrieved[1]"), print("$retrieved[2]") etc. It will print row 1 for print("$retrieved[1]"), row 2 print("$retrieved[2]"), and so on.
}

I hope it would give you an idea to solve your problem.
