what includes do i need for PDO?

I'm not sure if PDO is built in PHP so are there any includes required top of a page to run a query?


$stmt = $pdo->query("SELECT id,importsNumber FROM table"); 

This give me error -
Undefined variable: pdo

You need to enable it in php.ini

RE: what includes do i need for PDO?

It is and this is working for clarification


$pdo =  new Pdo('mysql:dbname=badbidder1;host=localhost', $username, $password);

//get the import number that is left and id
$stmt = $pdo->query("SELECT id,importsNumber FROM `bad_users` where username ='carquest'");

while ($row = $stmt->fetch())
	$youruserid = $row['id'];
	$import_num = $row['importsNumber'];

So what is different about code 'A' (not working) to code 'B' (working).

'We' (as in the royal 'we') cannot tell, because you have only provided one line of code for 'A'.
