hi

i have an enquiry table which collects information about users
making an online travel enquiry

the fields in the table are = StoryTitle, EndCity, mode, PricedFrom,
numAdults, numChildren, numInfants

presently the select query is

<?php

$sql = SELECT Count(*) as Counts, StoryTitle, EndCity, mode,
PricedFrom, numAdults, numChildren, numInfants, ReturnLocation FROM
`enquiry` WHERE date_format(en_date,'%Y-%m-%d') BETWEEN '" .
$startDate . "' AND '" . $endDate . "' " . $enquiryText . "
Group By StoryTitle, EndCity, mode, PricedFrom, numAdults,
numChildren, numInfants, ReturnLocation
Order By Counts Desc, StoryTitle Desc, mode, PricedFrom, numAdults,
numChildren, numInfants, ReturnLocation";

while ($row_rs_newEnquiries
= mysql_fetch_assoc($rs_newEnquiries))
{
$echoStr .= "
<tr bgcolor='#ebebeb'
class='default'><td>".$row_rs_newEnquiries['Counts']."</td>
<td
class='default'>&nbsp; ".$row_rs_newEnquiries['StoryTitle']."</td>
<td
class='default'>&nbsp; ".$row_rs_newEnquiries['EndCity']."</td>
<td
class='default'>&nbsp; ".$row_rs_newEnquiries['mode']."</td>
<td
class='default'>&nbsp; ".$row_rs_newEnquiries['PricedFrom']."</td>
<td
class='default'>&nbsp; ".$row_rs_newEnquiries['numAdults']."</td>
<td
class='default'>&nbsp; ".$row_rs_newEnquiries['numChildren']."</td>
<td
class='default'>&nbsp; ".$row_rs_newEnquiries['numInfants']."</td>
<td class='default'>&nbsp; <a href=".$row_rs_newEnquiries
['ReturnLocation'].">".$row_rs_newEnquiries
['ReturnLocation']."</a></td>
</tr>";
$total = $total +
$row_rs_newEnquiries['Counts'];
}

$totalamount=$row_rs_newEnquiries['totalvalue'];

echo "value of total enquiry is $ ". $totalamount;

?>

i have used $totalamount=$row_rs_newEnquiries['totalvalue']; both
inside the while loop and outside the while loop however this is not
working.

here Counts is the column which collects the number of times an
enquiry was made to a particular city example Sydney however Counts
DOES NOT exist as a field in the table and PricedFrom collects the
value of the $ amount to a city and this field exists in the table,
so multiplying Counts and PricedFrom should give the result

is the syntax of the select query correct as there is a comma before
Count(*) & am i reading the value of this multiplied value correctly

please advice.

thanks.

The answer to the question "Is the query correct?" would be, "Does the query work?"

If yes, then the query is right. If no, then it isn't.
