php mysql basic step by step tutorial -update record: In editing the data, you can use the syntax as follow:

file: db.inc.php for connection database

<?
//file include for database connection
//db.inc.php
//database connection
mysql_connect(“localhost”,”root”,”admin”);

// database selection
mysql_select_db(“employees”);
?>

file: edit.php for connection database

<html>
<head>
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<meta http-equiv=”Content-Type” content=”text/html; charset=iso-8859-1″>
</head>
<body>
<table>
<tr>
<td align=”center”>EDIT DATA</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>
<table border=”1″>
<?
include”db.inc.php”;//database connection
$order = “SELECT * FROM data_employees”;
$result = mysql_query($order);
while ($row=mysql_fetch_array($result)){
echo (“<tr><td>$row[name]</td>”);
echo (“<td>$row[employees_number]</td>”);
echo (“<td>$row[address]</td>”);
echo (“<td><a href=\”edit_form.php?id=$row[employees_number]\”>Edit</a></td></tr>”);
}
?>
</table>
</td>
</tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>

The picture above is edit.php file where this file will show overall data in the table, then there is edit menu in the last column. If you click the edit menu, it will bring the program to execute edit_form.php file. Edit_form.php file will show a form to edit the data which have been selected in the previous form. The mechanism is that the user choose one of the data that will be edited in the first form (edit.php file) by clicking the edit menu in the right column. You can see edit_form.php program file as follow:

<html>
<head>
<title>Form Edit Data</title>
</head>

<body>
<table border=1>
<tr>
<td align=center>Form Edit Employees Data</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>
<table>
<?
include “db.inc.php”;//database connection
$order = “SELECT * FROM data_employees
where employees_number=’$id'”;
$result = mysql_query($order);
$row = mysql_fetch_array($result);
?>
<form method=”post” action=”edit_data.php”>
<input type=”hidden” name=”id” value=”<? echo “$row[employees_number]”?>”>
<tr>
<td>Name</td>
<td>
<input type=”text” name=”name”
size=”20″ value=”<? echo “$row[name]”?>”>
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Address</td>
<td>
<input type=”text” name=”address” size=”40″
value=”<? echo “$row[address]”?>”>
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td align=”right”>
<input type=”submit”
name=”submit value” value=”Edit”>
</td>
</tr>
</form>
</table>
</td>
</tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>

By clicking the edit button, the program goes to the fourth program, edit_data.php file, which brings three variable such as $id variable which contains of employees number data, $name variable which contains of employees name data, and $address variable which contains of employees address. In order to know whether the data is already change or not, the program is re-instructed to edit.php file with the order of header (“location:edit.php”). Here is the edit_data.php program file:

<?
//edit_data.php
include “db.inc.php”;
$order = “UPDATE data_employees
SET name=’$name’,
address=’$address’
WHERE
employees_number=’$id'”;
mysql_query($order);
header(“location:edit.php”);
?>
