How can I display info based on recordset results?

How can I display info based on recordset results?

I have a page where a user registers travel information. One of the fields they must fill in is a preferred method of travel (Flying, Train, or Driving) and is submitted by a radio group. I know how to display table rows depending on if a recordset is empty or not, but what I want to do with this page is display relevant information based on the value of a recordset. If the user selects flying as their method, then I only want to display the Airport information. If a user selects Train, then I want to display only the train station information. If the user selects driving then I do not want to display either train station or airport information. I tried using a php if statement, but I think my syntax may have been wrong so I'm just going to display my original page with none of my "attempt" code in it. Many thanks for your help in advance.

<?php session_start(); ?>
<?php require_once('../../Connections/connDB.php'); ?>
<?php
if (!function_exists("GetSQLValueString")) {
function GetSQLValueString($theValue, $theType, $theDefinedValue = "", $theNotDefinedValue = "")
{
$theValue = get_magic_quotes_gpc() ? stripslashes($theValue) : $theValue;

$theValue = function_exists("mysql_real_escape_string") ? mysql_real_escape_string($theValue) : mysql_escape_string($theValue);

switch ($theType) {
case "text":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
break;
case "long":
case "int":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? intval($theValue) : "NULL";

Nevermind, I figured it out. I was using quotations while using the == to specify a recordset value by which to display the information. I realized that what I wanted was different than the usual "show if" type of code.
