**jst help me to convert database record to pdf file format and then display the pdf file on the form i hv tried the abv cord bt it does nt work db table is the same as i mentioned earlier pls give me the result as fst as possible *

k.. so first off, you are connecting to your database twice, for no reason

mysql_connect('localhost','root','root');mysql_select_db('project');$dbname="project"require('fpdf.php');//Connect to your databasemysql_connect("$host", "$username", "$password")or die("cannot connect");mysql_select_db("$db_name")or die("cannot select DB");

all that could be simplified...

$usr = 'usrname';
$pw = 'pw';
$host = 'localhost';
$dbname = "project";

$db = mysql_connect($host, $usr, $pw);
mysql_select_db($dbname, $db) or die ('Could not connect to MySQL: '.mysql_error());

Most of that should be in an include file, that is above your root.

Then, include_once('fpdf.php'); is fine...

You create your pdf file as per the fpdf object...

After that... Im having a little trouble following what your code is trying to accomplish...

you have

$filename = a non existent $file variable

you have a header that refers to a non existent variable $viewresults1.php... which... Im not even quite sure what to make of....

A little more info would be helpful in order to help you...
