Town
Post Code

The code below will only do it in this format

Firstname Lastname Address Town Post Code

<?php
require('mysql_table.php');



require('../db_config.php');
require('../global.php');
// connect to the database
db_connect($mysql['username'], $mysql['password'], $mysql['database'],$mysql['host']);
$config = get_config($mysql['prefix']);

// start the session
admin_sessions($config['admin_session_expire']);
if(!isset($_SESSION['logged_in'])){
	redirect('./login.php');
}
class PDF extends PDF_MySQL_Table
{
function Header()
{
	//Title
	$this->SetFont('Arial','',18);
	$this->Cell(0,6,'Members who serve in '. $_GET['name'] .'',0,1,'C');
	$this->Ln(10);
	//Ensure table header is output
	parent::Header();
}
}



$pdf=new PDF();
$pdf->AddPage();
$pdf->AddCol('Firstname',30,'Firstname');
$pdf->AddCol('Surname',30,'Surname');
$pdf->AddCol('address1',30,'Address');
$pdf->AddCol('address2',30,'Address');
$pdf->AddCol('postCode',30,'Post Code');

$prop=array('HeaderColor'=>array(255,150,100),
			'color1'=>array(210,245,255),
			'color2'=>array(255,255,210),
			'padding'=>2);
$pdf->Table("select `members_HouseGroup`.`description` AS `description`,`members_HouseGroup`.`id` AS `housegroupID`,`members_users`.`id` AS `id`,`members_users`.`memberTypeID` AS `memberTypeID`,`members_users`.`firstname` AS `firstname`,`members_users`.`lastname` AS `lastname`,`members_users`.`marital_status` AS `marital_status`,`members_users`.`email` AS `email`,`members_users`.`homephone` AS `homephone`,`members_users`.`businessphone` AS `businessphone`,`members_users`.`mobilephone` AS `mobilephone`,`members_users`.`address1` AS `address1`,`members_users`.`address2` AS `address2`,`members_users`.`towns` AS `towns`,`members_users`.`postCode` AS `postCode`,`members_users`.`relationship` AS `relationship`,`members_users`.`username` AS `username`,`members_users`.`status` AS `status`,`members_users`.`marital_status` AS `marital`, members_memberType.description as MemberType from ((`members_users` left join`members_memberType` on((`members_memberType`.`id` = `members_users`.`memberTypeID`))) left join `members_HouseGroup` on((`members_HouseGroup`.`id` = `members_users`.`housegroupID`))  ) where ((`members_users`.`memberTypeID` in (select id from members_memberType where housegroupind = 1)) ) and username not in (select username from members_spouseLink) order by members_users.lastname",$prop);

i took this from my invoice pdf code
you might have to change some sizes and locations
but it should show you what you need

<?php
require('fpdf.php');
$pdf=new FPDF();

//==========================================================
//SET DATABASE 
//==========================================================
		$h = "localhost";
    	$u = "USERNAME";
    	$p = "PASSWORD";
    	$d = "DATABASE";
      $link = mysql_connect ($h, $u, $p) or die ("Could not connect to database, try again later");
mysql_select_db($d,$link);

//==========================================================
//GRAB DATA FROM DATABASE
//==========================================================
$query = "SELECT * FROM SOMEDATABASE WHERE `SOMETHING` = 'SOMETHINGELSE'"; 
 $result = mysql_query($query) or die(mysql_error());
while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result, MYSQL_BOTH)){
$FIRSTNAME[] = $row['Firstname'];
$LASTNAME[] = $row['Lastname'];
$ADDRESS[] = $row['Address'];
$TOWN[] = $row['Town'];
$ZIPCODE = $row['Post Code'];


}

$county = count($item);
//==========================================================
//SET PDF INFO
//==========================================================

$pdf->AddPage();
$pdf->SetAuthor("AUTHOR");
$pdf->SetCreator("CREATOR", boolean);
$pdf->SetSubject("FILE ", boolean);
$pdf->SetTitle("TITLE", boolean);
$pdf->SetKeywords("SOME WORDS HERE", boolean);


//==========================================================
//SET COLOUMS
//==========================================================


$pdf->Rect(5, 70, 200, 190);
$pdf->Rect(5, 70, 10, 190);
$pdf->Rect(165, 70, 10, 190); //qty
$pdf->Rect(15, 70, 20, 190); // products
$pdf->Rect(160, 265, 40, 20);
$number = 75;


//==========================================================
//PRINT PRODUCTS  products
//==========================================================\
$county--;
		  for ($counter = 1 ; $counter <= $county; $counter += 1) { 
$pdf->Text(7, "$number", "$counter");
$pdf->Text(18, "$number", $FIRSNAME[$COUNTER]." ".$LASTNAME[$COUNTER]);
$pdf->Text(36, "$number", $ADDRESS[$COUNTER]);
$pdf->Text(170, "$number", $TOWN[$COUNTER];
$pdf->Text(181, "$number", $ZIPCODE[$COUNTER]);

$number = $number + 5; // SET SPACE BETTWEEN LINES

}

$pdf->Output();
?>

HITMANOF44th

Thanks for your help. I have converted all the relevant values to my database, but when I run it I get error

FPDF error: Some data has already been output, can't send PDF file (output started at /home/w/e/weststreet/web/public_html/MembersDBLive/reports/test.php:1)

I have checked google, but there seems to be many reasons. Please can you help me with this?

Below is the new code

<?php
      require('fpdf17/fpdf.php');

      mysql_select_db($d,$link);
      //==========================================================
      //GRAB DATA FROM DATABASE
      //==========================================================
      $query = "SELECT * FROM members_users";
      $result = mysql_query($query) or die(mysql_error());
      while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result, MYSQL_BOTH)){
      $FIRSTNAME[] = $row['Firstname'];
      $LASTNAME[] = $row['Lastname'];

you should not be echoing anything

Sorry I have removed the echo statement. I was just using it to check if anything was being passed through.

also are you sure the fpdf file is there try moving it into the same director and use require('fpdf.php'); just to see

Thanks yes I have just done so, but I am still getting the same result.

Change
1) LINE #31; $county = count($item); to $county = count($FIRSTNAME); (or similar) to count how many rows of elements are returned from your sql query

2) LINE #56 has typo change FIRSNAME to FIRSTNAME ("T" missing") and

3) LINE #56-#61: change $COUNTER to $counter everywhere. Uppercase and lowercase vairable names are seen as different in php.
