MySqli Help


We have an arena which we sell trade stand space to traders for the annual highland games. I want to allocate space to traders based on their space requirements

I have two dynamic select boxes on my page. These select boxes are for the Admin to allocate a location(pitch) that the client requires

Select One menu pulls info from two tables - the user table and product table. This then tells the admin what user requires what product!

i.e. User 15 requires product 8 - (product 8 is a pitch with the size of 15x15)

Select Two Menu pulls the info from a table that hold the pitch locations 40 pitches in total ranging in size based on the requirement for a particular year.

Once both fields have been selected this is then saved into a table with the traderID and pitchID ready for printing.

The thing I am struggling with is the SQLi code. In both select options I want the traderID and pitchID removed from the dropdowns once they have been allocated.

This did work in mySlq but I cannot get it to work in MySqli. below is my Sqlii code without the additional table. I can get it to show what pitches have been allocated but not the other way around.

$rsTraders = new WA_MySQLi_RS("rsTraders",$admin_chg,0);
$rsTraders->setQuery("SELECT tbl_traders.traderID, tbl_traders.trading_name, tbl_products.ProductSKU, tbl_products.ProductDimensions FROM tbl_traders LEFT OUTER JOIN tbl_products ON tbl_traders.pitch_req = tbl_products.ProductID WHERE tbl_traders.approved = 1");

this query gives all info

$rsTraders = new WA_MySQLi_RS("rsTraders",$admin_chg,0);
$rsTraders->setQuery("SELECT tbl_traders.traderID, tbl_traders.trading_name, tbl_products.ProductSKU, tbl_products.ProductDimensions, tbl_pitch_allocation.* FROM tbl_traders LEFT OUTER JOIN tbl_products ON tbl_traders.pitch_req = tbl_products.ProductID LEFT OUTER JOIN tbl_pitch_allocation ON tbl_traders.traderID = tbl_pitch_allocation.traderID WHERE tbl_traders.approved = 1");

I want to set it up so that the traderID is removed from the list if it exists in the table...I have been trying this for a few days with not luck.

New fresh eyes needed...I think I'm too close to the issue..
