blanks in field names

blanks in field names

blanks in field names

possibly moving access to sql and php
first attempt to list table with blanks in field names
ok on select but what about the echo !!

<head><title>MySQL Table List</title></head><body>

$servername = "localhost";
$username = "root";
$password = "";
$dbname = "members";

// Create connection
$conn = new mysqli($servername, $username, $password, $dbname);
// Check connection
if ($conn->connect_error) {
die("Connection failed: " . $conn->connect_error);

$sql = "SELECT `membership no`, `first name`, surname FROM Members";
$result = $conn->query($sql);

if ($result->num_rows > 0) {
// output data of each row
while($row = $result->fetch_assoc()) {
echo "id: " . $row["membership no"]. " - Name: " . $row["first name"]. " " . $row["surname"]. "<br>";
} else {
echo "0 results";

RE: blanks in field names

that should be fine. the spaces will be honoured in the associative array.

or you can always change things in the select


select `membership no` as membershipNum, `first name` as firstName //etc 

if you are using an object return (fetch_object) then you'd have to use this notation


$row->{"first name"} 

RE: blanks in field names

thanks for reply
option 1 works fine
