friends, i wanna print datas from MySQL into html with PHP like this:

===============================================================================
student | Biology | Math | Physics | Chemist | Sociology | average
===============================================================================
John | 8 | 7 | - | 6 | 9 |
Mark | 5 | 8 | 8 | 6 | 7 |
Donny | 7 | 9 | 7 | - | 9 |
================================================================================
Total | | | | | |
================================================================================

where the datas are taken from 3 tables (MySQL):

`students` table:
---------
student_id, student_name
---------------------------
1 John
2 Mark
3 Donny

`exam` table:
-----------
exam_id, exam_name
-------------------
1. Biology
2. Math
3. Physics
4. Chemist
5. Sociology

ada

`exam_result` table:
------------
student_name, exam_name, exam_result
--------------------------------------
John Biology 8
...


How can i do this whith php_array?

I tried to display the exam_result using:

$exam_result[student][exam]

but it fails.

Please help, bros...

Thx

Okay phplover, I think you could set up the database way better to make life easier for you ... here's how I would set up that Database and the code I would use to get the results ...
Code: [ Select ]
students
student_id - BIGINT,auto-increment
student_name - VARCHAR (100)
exam
exam_id - BIGINT auto-increment
exam name - VARCHAR (100)
exam_results
student_id - BIGINT
exam_id - BIGINT
result - INT(3)
  1. students
  2. student_id - BIGINT,auto-increment
  3. student_name - VARCHAR (100)
  4. exam
  5. exam_id - BIGINT auto-increment
  6. exam name - VARCHAR (100)
  7. exam_results
  8. student_id - BIGINT
  9. exam_id - BIGINT
  10. result - INT(3)


and a query to get the results would be:
Code: [ Select ]
SELECT student.student_name,exam.exam_name,exam_results.result FROM students LEFT JOIN exam_result ON student.student_id = exam_result.student_id LEFT JOIN exam ON exam.exam_id = exam_result.exam_id ORDER BY student.student_id,exam.exam_name

This way you'll get something like the following:
John - English - 80
John - Math - 72
Mary - English - 60
Mary - English - 23

hope this helped a little ...

Thanks, righteous_trespasser.
But it's not easy as joining query from one or more table only.
I mean, the headers (exam names) are data in `exam_name` table, and i need to place the exam_result datas to be match to their columns and rows.
The Column headers are: `exam_name` data
The Row headers Are: `student_name` data


So, the table structure should be displayed like:
Code: [ Select ]
 
----------------------------------------------------------
student | Biology | Math | Physics | Chemist | Sociology |
==========================================================
John    | 8       | 7    | -       | 6       | 9         |
Mark    | 5       | 8    | 8       | 6       | 7         |
Donny   | 7       | 9    | 7       | -       | 9         |
==========================================================
Total   | 20      | 24   | 15      | 12      | 25        |
==========================================================
// `exam_name` will be columns header
// `student_name` will be rows header
// `exam_result` will be data that is match to its column and rows.
 
  1.  
  2. ----------------------------------------------------------
  3. student | Biology | Math | Physics | Chemist | Sociology |
  4. ==========================================================
  5. John    | 8       | 7    | -       | 6       | 9         |
  6. Mark    | 5       | 8    | 8       | 6       | 7         |
  7. Donny   | 7       | 9    | 7       | -       | 9         |
  8. ==========================================================
  9. Total   | 20      | 24   | 15      | 12      | 25        |
  10. ==========================================================
  11. // `exam_name` will be columns header
  12. // `student_name` will be rows header
  13. // `exam_result` will be data that is match to its column and rows.
  14.  

How to make table structure like this w/ PHP?
Thanks for stay helping.

I'd let php worry about that actually ... And not try to get the table exactly like that because as far as my knowledge stretches that isn't possible ... here's a simple example ...
Code: [ Select ]
$con = mysql_connect("localhost","username","password");
mysql_select_db("db_name");
$sql = mysql_query("SELECT students.student_id, students.student_name, exam.exam_id, exam.exam_name, exam_results.result FROM students LEFT JOIN exam_results ON students.student_id = exam_result.student_id LEFT JOIN exam ON exam_results.exam_id = exam.exam_id ORDER BY user_id, exam_id");
$temp1 = "";
$temp2 = "";
echo "student | Biology | Math | Physics | Chemist | Sociology |";
while($row = mysql_fetch_array($sql))
{
$temp1 = $row['user_id'];
if($temp1 == temp2)
{
echo $row['exam_result'] . " |";
}
else
{
echo $row['user_name'] . " |" . $row['exam_result']
}
$temp2 = $row['user_id'];
}
mysql_close($con);
  1. $con = mysql_connect("localhost","username","password");
  2. mysql_select_db("db_name");
  3. $sql = mysql_query("SELECT students.student_id, students.student_name, exam.exam_id, exam.exam_name, exam_results.result FROM students LEFT JOIN exam_results ON students.student_id = exam_result.student_id LEFT JOIN exam ON exam_results.exam_id = exam.exam_id ORDER BY user_id, exam_id");
  4. $temp1 = "";
  5. $temp2 = "";
  6. echo "student | Biology | Math | Physics | Chemist | Sociology |";
  7. while($row = mysql_fetch_array($sql))
  8. {
  9. $temp1 = $row['user_id'];
  10. if($temp1 == temp2)
  11. {
  12. echo $row['exam_result'] . " |";
  13. }
  14. else
  15. {
  16. echo $row['user_name'] . " |" . $row['exam_result']
  17. }
  18. $temp2 = $row['user_id'];
  19. }
  20. mysql_close($con);


Only thing that's missing here is working out the totals ... If you don't quite get what I did please ask and I'll explain in more detail ...

The totals values is not too difficult. But printing results regarding its column and rows i ever heard before, it could be done with creating multidimensional array like this:
Code: [ Select ]
 
<?
 $array = array(
    array("App Name 1", "App Name 2", "App Name 3", "App Name 4", "App Name 5", "App Name 6"),
    array("department 1", "App Name 2", "App Name 5", "App Name 6"),
    array("department 2", "App Name 1", "App Name 2", "App Name 4"),
    array("department 3", "App Name 1", "App Name 2", "App Name 3", "App Name 5", "App Name 6"),
    );
     
//headers:
$headers = $array[0];
echo "<table border=1>
    <tr>
        <td>Department</td>\n";
foreach ( $headers AS $header ) {
    echo "\t\t<td>$header</td>\n";
}
echo "\t</tr>\n";
 
//loop through the remainder of the array
$end = count($array);
for ( $p = 1; $p < $end; $p++ ) {
    //echo the department:
    echo "\t<tr>
        <td>" . $array[$p][0] . "</td>\n";
    //loop through the headers, print an X in the td if present in $array[$p]
    foreach ( $headers AS $header ) {
        echo "\t\t<td>";
        if ( in_array($header, $array[$p]) ) {
            echo "X";
        } else {
            echo "&nbsp;";
        }
        echo "</td>\n";
    }
    echo "\t</tr>\n";
}
echo "</table>";  
?>
 
  1.  
  2. <?
  3.  $array = array(
  4.     array("App Name 1", "App Name 2", "App Name 3", "App Name 4", "App Name 5", "App Name 6"),
  5.     array("department 1", "App Name 2", "App Name 5", "App Name 6"),
  6.     array("department 2", "App Name 1", "App Name 2", "App Name 4"),
  7.     array("department 3", "App Name 1", "App Name 2", "App Name 3", "App Name 5", "App Name 6"),
  8.     );
  9.      
  10. //headers:
  11. $headers = $array[0];
  12. echo "<table border=1>
  13.     <tr>
  14.         <td>Department</td>\n";
  15. foreach ( $headers AS $header ) {
  16.     echo "\t\t<td>$header</td>\n";
  17. }
  18. echo "\t</tr>\n";
  19.  
  20. //loop through the remainder of the array
  21. $end = count($array);
  22. for ( $p = 1; $p < $end; $p++ ) {
  23.     //echo the department:
  24.     echo "\t<tr>
  25.         <td>" . $array[$p][0] . "</td>\n";
  26.     //loop through the headers, print an X in the td if present in $array[$p]
  27.     foreach ( $headers AS $header ) {
  28.         echo "\t\t<td>";
  29.         if ( in_array($header, $array[$p]) ) {
  30.             echo "X";
  31.         } else {
  32.             echo "&nbsp;";
  33.         }
  34.         echo "</td>\n";
  35.     }
  36.     echo "\t</tr>\n";
  37. }
  38. echo "</table>";  
  39. ?>
  40.  

The above code produces:
Code: [ Select ]
 
<table border=1>
    <tr>
        <td>Department</td>
        <td>App Name 1</td>
        <td>App Name 2</td>
        <td>App Name 3</td>
        <td>App Name 4</td>
        <td>App Name 5</td>
        <td>App Name 6</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
        <td>department 1</td>
        <td>&nbsp;</td>
        <td>X</td>
        <td>&nbsp;</td>
        <td>&nbsp;</td>
        <td>X</td>
        <td>X</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
        <td>department 2</td>
        <td>X</td>
        <td>X</td>
        <td>&nbsp;</td>
        <td>X</td>
        <td>&nbsp;</td>
        <td>&nbsp;</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
        <td>department 3</td>
        <td>X</td>
        <td>X</td>
        <td>X</td>
        <td>&nbsp;</td>
        <td>X</td>
        <td>X</td>
    </tr>
</table>
 
  1.  
  2. <table border=1>
  3.     <tr>
  4.         <td>Department</td>
  5.         <td>App Name 1</td>
  6.         <td>App Name 2</td>
  7.         <td>App Name 3</td>
  8.         <td>App Name 4</td>
  9.         <td>App Name 5</td>
  10.         <td>App Name 6</td>
  11.     </tr>
  12.     <tr>
  13.         <td>department 1</td>
  14.         <td>&nbsp;</td>
  15.         <td>X</td>
  16.         <td>&nbsp;</td>
  17.         <td>&nbsp;</td>
  18.         <td>X</td>
  19.         <td>X</td>
  20.     </tr>
  21.     <tr>
  22.         <td>department 2</td>
  23.         <td>X</td>
  24.         <td>X</td>
  25.         <td>&nbsp;</td>
  26.         <td>X</td>
  27.         <td>&nbsp;</td>
  28.         <td>&nbsp;</td>
  29.     </tr>
  30.     <tr>
  31.         <td>department 3</td>
  32.         <td>X</td>
  33.         <td>X</td>
  34.         <td>X</td>
  35.         <td>&nbsp;</td>
  36.         <td>X</td>
  37.         <td>X</td>
  38.     </tr>
  39. </table>
  40.  

I only need to load the datas from 3 mysql tables into the table. But all i need is to make the following (minimum):
Code: [ Select ]
 
----------------------------------------------------------
student | Biology | Math | Physics | Chemist | Sociology |
==========================================================

Donny   | 7       | 9    | 7       | -       | 9         |
 
 
  1.  
  2. ----------------------------------------------------------
  3. student | Biology | Math | Physics | Chemist | Sociology |

The code I showed you will return this:
Code: [ Select ]
 
----------------------------------------------------------

  7. Donny   | 7       | 9    | 7       | -       | 9         |
  8.  
  9.  

It just needs some fine tuning (placement) ... but I know it'll work ... I have done it before ...

Thanks for your help, brother.
I have tried to use your code but it doesn't work although I've modified some aparts.

Your code will not display data from a new `exam_name`.
I mean, we need always change our php & html code if a new `exam_name` is registered.
These are the tables related I used to run your code:
Code: [ Select ]
 
CREATE TABLE `students` (
  `student_id` int(10) NOT NULL auto_increment,
  `student_name` varchar(50) NOT NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY  (`student_id`)
) ENGINE=MyISAM DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1;
 
-- ----------------------------
-- Records of `students` :

INSERT INTO `students` VALUES ('1', 'John');

CREATE TABLE `exam_results` (

Then, I run Your scripts (some has been modified, please tell me if i do some wrong modification):

  7. $temp2 = "";
  8. echo "student | Biology | Math | Physics | Chemist | Sociology |";
  9.     while($row = mysql_fetch_array($sql))
  10.     {
  11.         $temp1 = $row['student_id'];
  12.         if($temp1 == temp2)
  13.         {
  14.             echo $row['result'] . "   |<br />";
  15.         }
  16.         else
  17.         {
  18.             echo $row['student_name'] . "   |" . $row['result']."<br />";
  19.         }
  20.         $temp2 = $row['student_id'];
  21.     }
  22. mysql_close($con);
  23.  
  24. ?>
  25.  

the above code produce the following:
Code: [ Select ]
 
student | Biology | Math | Physics | Chemist | Sociology |John |8John |7John |6John |9Mark |5Mark |8Mark |8Mark |6Mark |7Donny |7Donny |9Donny |7Donny |9
 
 
  1.  
  2. student | Biology | Math | Physics | Chemist | Sociology |John |8John |7John |6John |9Mark |5Mark |8Mark |8Mark |6Mark |7Donny |7Donny |9Donny |7Donny |9
  3.  
  4.  

"The table header and all datas are in one row."
You said that it returned:
Code: [ Select ]
 
----------------------------------------------------------
student | Biology | Math | Physics | Chemist | Sociology |
==========================================================
John    | 8       | 7    | -       | 6       | 9         |
Mark    | 5       | 8    | 8       | 6       | 7         |
Donny   | 7       | 9    | 7       | -       | 9         |
----------------------------------------------------------
 
  1.  
  2. ----------------------------------------------------------
  3. student | Biology | Math | Physics | Chemist | Sociology |
  4. ==========================================================
  5. John    | 8       | 7    | -       | 6       | 9         |
  6. Mark    | 5       | 8    | 8       | 6       | 7         |
  7. Donny   | 7       | 9    | 7       | -       | 9         |
  8. ----------------------------------------------------------
  9.  

Sorry, but I think it doesn't.
 
1st reason:
------------
John[Physics] is empty, and (your) John[Chemist] value will place (your) empty John[Physics]'s column. It's mean, some datas aren't placedin the right columns (and rows).
 
 
2nd reason:
-----------
Your table headers (Biology, Math, Physics, Chemist, Sociology) is written in static HTML, it's not data from `exam` table.
This will force you work hard if any additional on `exam` table.
You have to place the exam_result value matching its column.
=========
 
There's only one method to place the result into its correct row and column, using array in array (multidimensional array):
Code: [ Select ]
 
echo "$result[student_name] | $result[student_name][Biology] | $result[student_name][Math] ...and so on";
 
  1.  
  2. echo "$result[student_name] | $result[student_name][Biology] | $result[student_name][Math] ...and so on";
  3.  

It's almost like the code i posted before. The data will be placed in the right place.

The question is:
How to make that like data using MySQL Data (3 tables)?

Okay, I think you didn't quite understand my code so here we go ... I am going to stop quickly and write it for you ... here we go ...

Code: [ Select ]

$sql2 = mysql_query("SELECT DISTINCT exam_name FROM exam ORDER BY exam_id");
$temp1 = "";
$temp2 = "";
$count = 0;
echo "<table><tr><td>Students</td>";
while($row = mysql_fetch_array($sql2))

:lol: Alright... I decided to barge in here and interrupt your conversation with R_T and phplover.

Is OOP (Object Oriented Programming)...(A class in this case) a too much approach for this? Is that an overkill for something like this?

I mean, I started typing a class for this and I'm half-way done but now that I think of it... is it too much?

Or would you still try it? :lol:

[EDIT:] Actually I'm done with it...

Forget CLASSES... it's not worth it for this case... I redid it into one function without the class but the damn thing doesn't want to work :lol:

Shows the score for all of them for only 1 exam and the rest don't get a chance haha can't figure out the problem as the problem is a bit more advanced that I am... (Error on line 30... )

(The tabs (\t) between the table tags [e.g: <table>,<tr>,<td>...] are to make the source look cleaner...)

Have fun and hope you get it to work...

@R_T: I tried your code and it gives me the same forsaken error that I get...

BTW phplover: Thanks for that example database thing... helped me test the script(s).

That error usually shows up when you use an incorrect query ... I didn't have time to go set up that database and actually test my code ... there may just be a typo or something ...

Alright... I fixed that problem and made another one... hang on as I fix it...

[EDIT:] Here is the fixed and completely working version (The fix was actually an easy one... I actually had everything correct, just that I didn't put the right SQL process into that while(); loop and had a little too much coding...)

PHP Code: [ Select ]
<?php
 function exams() {
   $con = mysql_connect('localhost','user','pass') or die(mysql_error());
   $select = mysql_select_db('database') or die(mysql_error());

    }
    $table .= "\t</tr>\n";
 
    $students = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM students");
    while($student = mysql_fetch_assoc($students))
    {
      $st_id = $student['student_id'];
      $st_name = $student['student_name'];
 
      $process = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM exam_results JOIN exam ON exam_results.exam_id = exam.exam_id WHERE student_id = '{$st_id}'");
      $table .= "\t<tr>\n\t\t<td>\n\t\t\t{$st_name}\n\t\t</td>\n";
      while($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($process))

      }

  15.     }
  16.     $table .= "\t</tr>\n";
  17.  
  18.     $students = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM students");

  35.    echo $table;
  36.    }
  37.  }
  38. ?>


Enjoy :D I know for sure that this works as I have tested it... Just one drawback to it that I'm trying to fix...

That drawback is that it doesn't do a <td>...</td> when the score is empty...

So Bogey what's the difference between your code and mine ... ? Because mine will actually still add a <td></td> if the exam result is empty ...

Probably because mine works? :lol: I tested your script and tried to fix the error...

Not only that this is my version :D Probably no real difference...

And those missing <td>...</td> don't make the code invalid... it's still xhtml strict valid code... the only reason I called it a drawback because I didn't knew it was valid... until now :)

Yeah, but if you don't show the empty <td>'s you'll end up showing the wrong data for the wrong columns ... for example
Code: [ Select ]
<tr><td>Math</td><td>Biol</td></tr>
<tr><td>0090</td><td>0050</td></tr>
<tr><td>0021</td></tr>
  1. <tr><td>Math</td><td>Biol</td></tr>
  2. <tr><td>0090</td><td>0050</td></tr>
  3. <tr><td>0021</td></tr>

The second person only has a mark for Biol (Biology) but it will show under math because the code didn't add the empty TD ... see where the problem comes in, and then also that code won't validate because the second user's row doesn't contain enough TDs ... get what I'm saying ... ?

I edited my code a tiny bit and fixed that error, and came up with this ... it's not quite right yet, as you can see, John doesn't have Physics but it doesn't skip that row, and the same goes for Donny that doesn't have Chemist, so that row doesn't get skipped ... the only way to get around this without adding heaps of code is to actually just insert a 0 for each exam that wasn't taken ... then that data would display correctly ...

Congrat Bogey! You got my double-smile :) :)
Your latest code is work, and ALMOST reach my need. :)


Thanks to Bogey, thanks to righteous_trespasser for your interests on helping me.

for righteous_trespasser, your latest code (in this forum, not in http://ohdesignx.co.za/exam/temp.php) displayed nothing in my browser, although i have modified again.
I didn't know what's my wrong, i have modified your code to be match with my database.

for Bogey:
I used Your script:
Code: [ Select ]

2. Your code needs too much MySQL queries. If we work w/ big-size data, our server will be "timed out || not responding || data will be loaded uncompletely".
For example; we have 1,000,000,000 students, and 50 exams.
we need to request exam_result.result for 50,000,000,000 times
(but I wont to try this :))

You use looping inside a looping (while in while).
Code: [ Select ]
 
$students = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM students");
      while($student = mysql_fetch_assoc($students))
      {
        ...
       $process = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM exam_results JOIN exam ON exam_results.exam_id = exam.exam_id WHERE student_id = '{$st_id}'");
        $table .= "\t<tr>\n\t\t<td>\n\t\t\t{$st_name}\n\t\t</td>\n";
        while($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($process))
        {
          ...
 
  1.  
  2. $students = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM students");
  3.       while($student = mysql_fetch_assoc($students))
  4.       {
  5.         ...
  6.        $process = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM exam_results JOIN exam ON exam_results.exam_id = exam.exam_id WHERE student_id = '{$st_id}'");
  7.         $table .= "\t<tr>\n\t\t<td>\n\t\t\t{$st_name}\n\t\t</td>\n";
  8.         while($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($process))
  9.         {
  10.           ...
  11.  

Would you write the data in array to make it simple?
$line[1]="$row[John] </td><td>$row[John][Biology]</td><td>$row[John][Math]...";
I mean, combining (w/ some modification, offcourse) MySQL Queries w/ script like this:
Code: [ Select ]
 
<?
 $array = array(
    array("App Name 1", "App Name 2", "App Name 3", "App Name 4", "App Name 5", "App Name 6"),
    array("department 1", "App Name 2", "App Name 5", "App Name 6"),
    array("department 2", "App Name 1", "App Name 2", "App Name 4"),
    array("department 3", "App Name 1", "App Name 2", "App Name 3", "App Name 5", "App Name 6"),
    );
     
//headers:
$headers = $array[0];
echo "<table border=1>
    <tr>
        <td>Department</td>\n";
foreach ( $headers AS $header ) {
    echo "\t\t<td>$header</td>\n";
}
echo "\t</tr>\n";
 
//loop through the remainder of the array
$end = count($array);
for ( $p = 1; $p < $end; $p++ ) {
    //echo the department:
    echo "\t<tr>
        <td>" . $array[$p][0] . "</td>\n";
    //loop through the headers, print an X in the td if present in $array[$p]
    foreach ( $headers AS $header ) {
        echo "\t\t<td>";
        if ( in_array($header, $array[$p]) ) {
            echo "X";
        } else {
            echo "&nbsp;";
        }
        echo "</td>\n";
    }
    echo "\t</tr>\n";
}
echo "</table>";  
?>
 
  1.  
  2. <?
  3.  $array = array(
  4.     array("App Name 1", "App Name 2", "App Name 3", "App Name 4", "App Name 5", "App Name 6"),
  5.     array("department 1", "App Name 2", "App Name 5", "App Name 6"),
  6.     array("department 2", "App Name 1", "App Name 2", "App Name 4"),
  7.     array("department 3", "App Name 1", "App Name 2", "App Name 3", "App Name 5", "App Name 6"),
  8.     );

There you go ... now just remember that you must add zeros(0) where the person hasn't taken the test ... got it?

I mean, the "I edited my code a tiny bit and fixed that error.... + ... when I add the zeros..."
Sorry, i use dial up connection, so i'm not quickly updated.
Internet cost is not cheap in Indonesia. :)

it results:

I didn't insert the 0 anywhere in the code I added this to the Database
Code: [ Select ]
INSERT INTO exam_results (student_id,exam_id,result) VALUES ('1','3','0');
INSERT INTO exam_results (student_id,exam_id,result) VALUES ('3','4','0');
  1. INSERT INTO exam_results (student_id,exam_id,result) VALUES ('1','3','0');
  2. INSERT INTO exam_results (student_id,exam_id,result) VALUES ('3','4','0');

According me, that's not a good idea for inserting 0 data.
If I was an EDP staff, I wouldn't insert blank exam_result (per student, per exam)... It's a hard job for me if we have a large number of students and exams ( smile ).
We will have database with so many 0 value.
It should be generated automatically by the programmer, not the EDP Staff.
Btw, thx for your method.
It could fix my problem too.
Other methods will be awarded too :)

look, there is no other way that I can see to do this ... so take it or leave it ... Unfortunately I don't have time to code your whole site for you ... I gave all the help I can ... It seems to me that you are taking on a job that you do not have the necessary skills for, I'm not saying that this is a bad thing, you can learn a lot from a project like this, but it almost feels as if you're expecting me to code the whole site for you ... And at the end of the day that's not quite fair seeing as you're the one getting paid for this job and I'm neglecting my job to help out ...

No... no...
You are miss understood.
I realy award Your helps and Bogey's helps.
But if I could not take it after i make a comparison, or I found a bad side of Your method, should you angry?
Please note that NOT all users marked as "newbie" in this forum are realy "newbie" or "plagiator" that will sell your code totaly with no permission at all and saying "Hahaha! I'm rich now by my self, not the Superhero at Ozzu".
Your idea is smart but I, like I was written in the title: "PHP-MySQL: Need Help to Create Multidimensional HTML Table" alway thinking that "Multidimensional Array" is the best way.
You are a "Superhero" aren't You?
Some of phpGuru that "real Guru" I knew, recommend me to use this method (Php Multidimensional array).
I tried, but it always fails. It's not mean I only want Your code, FREEly.
Thanks for your smart :) idea.
