Hi all

i have this code that will search a record from the database

<?php
define ('DB_NAME', 'try1');
define ('DB_USER', 'root');
define ('DB_PASSWORD', '');
define ('DB_HOST', 'localhost');

$link = mysql_connect(DB_HOST, DB_USER, DB_PASSWORD);

if (!$link) {
   die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
}

$db_selected = mysql_select_db(DB_NAME, $link);

if (!$db_selected) {
   die('Can\'t use ' . DB_NAME . ': ' . mysql_error());
}

$term = $_GET['fname'];

$sql = mysql_query("select * from employee where fname like '%$term%'");
$result=mysql_query($sql);
$num=mysql_num_rows($result);

//mysql_close();

$i=0;
while ($i < $num) {
//while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($sql)){
    $emp_number=mysql_result($result,$i,"emp_number");
   $fname=mysql_result($result,$i,"fname");
   $mname=mysql_result($result,$i,"mname");
   $lname=mysql_result($result,$i,"lname");

   $projname=mysql_result($result,$i,"projname");

Hi,

You are getting the errors because your database query on line 21 is failing.
I'm guessing it's because $term = $_GET['fname']; isn't defined. You can find out by adding an echo "Term is " . $term; on line 20.

You also have lots of problems with your HTML code (no <head> or <body> tags, the same name for every field etc.)

1

$sql = mysql_query("select * from employee where fname like'%'".$term."'%'");

try it like this.

Hi imBaCodes and Zagga

i tried the codes you gave but its still the same :(

0

Warning: mysql_num_rows() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in C:\wamp\www\log-in\search.php on line 23

thats the error.

0

Firstly, you are excecuting your query twice, like this;

$sql = mysql_query("select * from employee where fname like '%$term%'");
$result=mysql_query($sql);

Remove one of the excecutions then let us know wat the result is.

0

You can either use;

$sql = mysql_query("select * from employee where fname like '%$term%'");

OR

$sql = "select * from employee where fname like '%$term%'";
$result=mysql_query($sql);
0

As Webville312 mentions above.

Also are you sure $term is being set? $term is getting it's value from $_GET['fname'] but where is this value coming from?

thank you Webville!

now here is what i got

Zagga,

the term is from my search-form.php and here is the code:

<title>Search</title>
<form action="search.php" method="get" />
<font face="arial">

<p>First Name: <input type="text" name="fname" /> </p>

<input type="submit" value="search" />
<body bgcolor="#3399ff">
</font>
</form>

Hi again,

the notices are due to the way you are setting the variables (between line 30 and 43).

You can fetch the sql result with:

$row = mysql_fetch_array($result);

Then retrieve the variables with:

$empnumber = $row['emp_number'];
$fname = $row['fname'];
$mname = $row['mname'];

etc.

If the query returns no results, the variables are never given a value. You should initialize them with an empty string.

hi pritaeas

this is a search function. the user will search the name of the employee. where will i put an empty string? :/

1

Its getting an error because the $term = $_GET['fname'] is null.
You dont have a form tag.
If you want it that way try it using AJAX.

0

This code will put the same value's of the first emplyee into the varables $num times?
To create a list of all employee's that match the search put the mysql_fetch_array and the html-part inside the while loop
