Need to display database field by DESC but it's not working

I will let you know exactly how the database is and give you a quick example and see if that helps. A user is looking at a comic by "MEMBER-1" they are looking specifically at "PAGE#1". They click on a 5 to rate the comic.The fields that go into the database are ARTIST="MEMBER-1" PAGE="PAGE#1" and rating="5" as well as a hidden field capturing the users IP and a auto-increment field that gives the message a unique numerical ID. So the fields that matter are the first three as I use the rating with the average rating function which is working fine. The ARTIST field is used to sort by group by specific artist/comic also works fine. Now the problem is that the page being displayed is always going to be PAGE#1... when the user goes to page two and rates a 3 for example the following is correctly being entered into the database ARTIST="MEMBER-1" PAGE="PAGE#2" and rating="3"now on the indexalt.php page I posted above I would like instead of "PAGE#1" being displayed for it to display "PAGE#2" of the same comic, with the rating and group still working the way it does. Hope this isn't too confusing but that's the best I can do to describe what I am attempting.
