mssql_result() - Retrieve Field Values


How To Retrieve Field Values using mssql_result()?

✍: Guest


Once the result set is captured in an object, you can think of it as a "table" with rows and columns (fields). You can use mssql_result() to retrieve the value of any given row and column (field) with this formats:

$value = mssql_result($res, $row, $column);
#- $row is the row number, starting with 0
#- $column is the column number, starting with 0

The tutorial PHP script below shows you how to list tables in the database with multiple field values:

  $con = mssql_connect('LOCALHOST','sa','FYIcenter');
  mssql_select_db('FyiCenterData', $con);

  $sql = "SELECT * FROM  sys.objects"
     . " WHERE type_desc='USER_TABLE'";
  $res = mssql_query($sql, $con);
  print("User Tables:\n");
  for ($i=0; $i<mssql_num_rows($res); $i++) {
     print("   ".mssql_result($res,$i,0));
     print(", ".mssql_result($res,$i,1));
     print(", ".mssql_result($res,$i,6)."\n");


If you run this script, you will get something like:

User Tables:
   fyi_rates, 85575343, USER_TABLE
   fyi_team, 165575628, USER_TABLE
   fyi_random, 821577965, USER_TABLE
   fyi_links_indexed, 1061578820, USER_TABLE
   fyi_links, 1093578934, USER_TABLE
   fyi_links_copy, 1253579504, USER_TABLE
   tipBackup2, 2121058592, USER_TABLE
