Filtering recordset result containing DATE_FORMAT by logged in user id

Filtering recordset result containing DATE_FORMAT by logged in user id

Hello Jason,

I am trying to filter the recordset result generated by the query below based on login UserID in order to display date and time the user last downloaded PDF files. I am finding it challenging to set a runtime value that either does not work and produces error or works but displays no data.

SELECT download_users.UserdownloadID, download_users.DownloadID, download_users.DownloadFileName, download_users.DownloadAllowed, download_users.DownloadCount, download_users.DownloadTime, pcms2_users.UserID, DATE_FORMAT(download_users.DownloadTime, '%W %D %M %Y') AS DownloadDate, DATE_FORMAT(download_users.DownloadTime, '%h:%i:%s %p') AS DeliveredTime
FROM download_users, pcms2_users
WHERE download_users.UserID = pcms2_users.UserID
ORDER BY download_users.UserdownloadID DESC

Any help is most appreciated.

Thanks.

Please find attached the page detailing the query in the above post I want to add DownloadDate and DeliveredTime from the rsDownload recordset to the users-downloads.php (attached) using security assist UserID to filter the result generated. How do I go about filtering the rsDownload recordset to only show download information for users logged in?

Thanks!

add to the where clause:
WHERE download_users.UserID = pcms2_users.UserID

another condition:
WHERE download_users.UserID = pcms2_users.UserID AND pcms2_users.UserID = paramUserID

then create a new variable in the recordset as:
name: paramUserID
type: integer
default value: -1
Runtime Value: $_SESSION['<user id session>']

where <user id session> is the name of the session created by the login page to hold the users ID

Hmmm, the %s used in the date format is conflicting with the %s used to insert the variable into the sprintf function.

Is it absolutely necessary to format the date in the recordset? you could use the PHP date function to format the date displayed on the page:

<?php echo date("g:m:i a", strtotime($row_recordsetName['ColumnName'])); ?>

this way you wont need the date format function in the SQL and can work around the sprintf conflict.

see the php manual page for more details on gormating the date using PHP:

It is not absolutely necessary format the date in the query. I like your recommendation. It did the trick. Thanks.

saves a bit of processing on the database too, since you only have to return the date once, rather than returning it twice and performing the formatting.
