echo correct value from linked table in results page

echo correct value from linked table in results page

My database structure has one main table called jobs and then a few other tables linked to jobs, for example in jobs there is a client_id field which is an integer, I then have a clients table with a unique id of client_id and it lists the client names etc. this all works fine and I have made all of the correct bindings when setting up my drop-down menus in my insert and update pages.

what I am stuck on is outputting the correct value in the results field, right now it outputs the integer and I would like it to output the corresponding value from the clients table.

any help with this would be greatly appreciated

Cheers
Pete

Hi Peter,

Hope all is well down under!

One way to do it would be to nest a query in your loop.

For example:

<table>
<tr>
<td>Job Name</td>
<td>Job Descrition</td>
<td>Company</td>
<?php do { ?>

<tr>
<td>
<?php echo $row_jobs['name']; ?>
</td>

<td>
<?php echo $row_jobs['description']; ?>
</td>

<td>
<?php


mysql_select_db($database_YOURDB, $YOURDB);
$query_company = "SELECT company_name FROM company_table WHERE id = $row_jobs['company_id']";
$company = mysql_query($query_company, $YOURDB) or die(mysql_error());
$row_company = mysql_fetch_assoc($company);
$totalRows_company = mysql_num_rows($company);
?>
<?php echo $row_company['company_name']; ?>
</td>

</tr>

<?php } while ($row_jobs = mysql_fetch_assoc($jobs)); ?>

</table>




Please note I made completely arbitrary names for the fields just to show the logic.

Cheers,

Brian

WHOA!... that is unreal.

I have never seen anything like it before in my life. I have seen some dust storms in the desert but nothing like that.

Hope you can breathe ok... good luck on the application.

Wow, hope you are staying safe Pete.

To display the text from the related table, you should modify the recordset to create a joined query.
