    There's two options, the first is to not use the submit button and just use the anchor. The second is to use the submit button without the anchor. Technically you can render it to appear like it is a button as well.

    In either case, you are required to provide it with some input information to pass it to the next script. HTTP is stateless, and without providing all information required it hasn't a clue what you are trying to do since it doesn't know what you've previously done. So that would require either a querystring for the anchor or a value for the submit button.
    PHP Code:
    printf('<a href="try3.php?itemid=%s">%s</a>'$row['item_name'], $row['item_name']); 
    For example. I don't suggest the form object since you'd need to either show the value you intend to submit, or use a name="itemid[$row['item_name']]" approach which means you need to deal with it as an array.
    When clicked, the $_GET or $_POST will contain the itemid querystring, depending on if you use a get or post request.
    PHP Code:
    header('HTTP/1.1 420 Enhance Your Calm');
