Hi Johannes,

That's because you are only requesting the id in your select statement. The piece of code that assigns a value to $line[1] is missing here. I'm guessing it contains the name of the columnn to return.

The easy way to get the whole row is:

SELECT * FROM mytable

I don't like doing that as the code is ambiguous. So I will normally list every column I wish to retrieve, even when I am requesting all columns from the table.

Good Luck!
