How To Loop through Result Set Objects using odbc_fetch_row()?

If the returning output of a query statement is captured in a result set object, you can use odbc_fetch_row() to loop through each row in the output.

The tutorial PHP script below shows you how to list tables in the database:

<?php
  $con = odbc_connect('FYI_SQL_SERVER','sa','FYIcenter');

  $sql = "SELECT * FROM  sys.objects"
     . " WHERE type_desc='USER_TABLE'";
  $res = odbc_exec($con, $sql);
  print("User Tables:\n");
  while (odbc_fetch_row($res)) {
     print("   ".odbc_result($res,'name')."\n");
  }
  odbc_free_result($res);

  odbc_close($con); 
?>

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

User Tables:
   fyi_rates
   fyi_team
   fyi_random
   fyi_links_indexed
   fyi_links
   fyi_links_copy
   tipBackup2
