Two queries on same table

Two queries on same table

I have a table (Table1) with the following fields:


There are multiple records with the same name. For instance 3 Johns and 4 Smiths.

I want to display this data as follows in a table.

First line:

Subsequent lines:
Date, Quantity, Description for each record with that name
With one line per each.

Then Name again
And then one line per each record with that name

It would look like this:

10/5/21 5 Red buttons
11/6/21 3 Black Ties
09/5/21 8 Yellow curtains
12/6/21 2 Blue Pansies

My sql query is

$rsTable1 = new WA_MySQLi_RS("rsTable1 ",$siteguide2018,0);
$rsTable1 ->setQuery("SELECT * FROM Table1 ORDER BY Name");
$rsTable1 ->execute();

Can I put another query using the same table in a sub-table like this?

$rslist = new WA_MySQLi_RS("rslist ",$siteguide2018,0);
$rslist ->setQuery("SELECT * FROM Table1 WHERE Name = ? ORDER BY Date");
$rslist ->bindParam("i", "".($rsTable1->getColumnVal("Name")) ."", "0");
$rslist ->execute();

Or will having two open queries on the same table cause trouble?

It will not be a problem. I do it all the time. Copy and paste the second recordset into the repeat region to make sure it is updated for each row displayed.
