Table persons:
P_Id LastName FirstName Address City
1 Hansen Ola Timoteivn 10 Sandnes
2 Svendson Tove Borgvn 23 Sandnes
3 Pettersen Kari Storgt 20 Stavanger

Imagine I have the above table in a mysql database...

I would like to get the "P_Id" of the person who lives at "Storgt 20" from a mysql query

I thought that the following would work:

MYSQL Code: [ Select ]
SELECT P_Id FROM `persons` WHERE Address='Storgt 20'

Unless some of my php isn't working, this doesn't work

any suggestions?

Try this

MYSQL Code: [ Select ]
mysql_query("SELECT P_Id FROM persons WHERE Address='Storgt 20' ");

Looking at it again, I can't really remember if the single quotes are needed around 'persons'. but worth a shot.

natas, those are backticks, and they're only really required in cases when a table name uses reserved words. :D

techwiz, my first guess is that it has something to do with your PHP / MySQL connection character set. The query looks solid.

It's been so long since I've had to deal with a character set mis-synchronization, I've forgotten where to start. :scratchhead:

Another thought, is that perhaps your data was copied from a source which had spaces on the end of each line. A quick way to test for that is with the following query.

SQL Code: [ Select ]
SELECT COUNT(P_Id) FROM persons WHERE Address LIKE '% '
