Help needed to display values from DB.

I have a product table DB & in that there is many columns. One of the column name is - > productUser.

TABLE NAME - PRODUCT
1 of the COLUMN NAME is - productUser

productUser contains userid of the user..

So in that column i enter USERID of the users...

So when a user login's i want to productUser to be filtered & want to display how many product are for them from PRODUCT'S TABLE... ei. 1,2,3, or etc ...

Hope u were able to understand.

When the user logs in you need to store the user ID in a session variable.

Then filter the products products table with the value of the user ID in the session variable.

I guess u didnt understand my question..

Simple Example:

TABLE NAME PRODUCT:

COLUMNS:

ProductID ProductName ProductUserId
1 sample1 3
2 sample1 4
3 sample1 3
4 sample1 8


So now lets say i login & my userID is 3.

So i want to display no 2 by filtering ProductUserId from PRODUCT DB.

I dont understand what you are asking.

If ProductID has a userid of 4, and your user has a userid of 3, why would you want that returned?

If you want to display the products for the user that is logged in, then my example works.

Thanks
Ian

TABLE NAME PRODUCT:

COLUMNS:

ProductID ||| ProductName ||| ProductUserId
1 ||| sample1 ||| 3
2 ||| sample1 ||| 4
3 ||| sample1 ||| 3
4 ||| sample1 ||| 8


So now lets say i login & my userID is 3.

So i want to display no 2 by filtering ProductUserId from PRODUCT DB.

well, your sample data doesn't make sense with your question.

you say:
So now lets say i login & my userID is 3.

then say:
So i want to display no 2 by filtering ProductUserId from PRODUCT DB.


and your sample data for product 2 says:
ProductID ||| ProductName ||| ProductUserId
2 ||| sample1 ||| 4

which is for User ID 4, not for User ID 3

the sample data for product ID 1 is for userID 3:
ProductID ||| ProductName ||| ProductUserId
1 ||| sample1 ||| 3


nevertheless, Ian S's initial response:

  When the user logs in you need to store the user ID in a session variable.

Then filter the products table with the value of the user ID in the session variable.  



is the correct way to do what you are asking about.

you use the UserID session variable created at login to filter the ProductUserId column of the products table.
