Establish variables to be used with query data
Posted by: Matt Wigner

I have this code:
// Make a MySQL Connection
mysql_connect("localhost", "___", "___") or die(mysql_error());
mysql_select_db("____") or die(mysql_error());

// Retrieve all the data from the "TECH" table
$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM tech WHERE ID='".$_POST['tech']."'") or die(mysql_error());  

// Print out the contents of the entry 

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)){
	echo $row['NAME']. " - ". $row['ID']. " - ". $row['ALLOW']. " - ". $row['TEAM']. " - ". $row['LOCA'];
	echo "<br />";

How would I do the exact same thing except instead of echo the information there, how do I establish variables for the 5 items to be used later in the php code? Or do I simply use $row['NAME'] ?

Thanks for any help. Total noob working with this for the first time. Just trying to learn.
