Succesfully created a table 'phone_book' in database 'test' in mysql.

and here's the script that goes with it:


$table = "phone_book";
$field1 = "first_name";
$field1_label = "First Name";

$field2 = "last_name";
$field2_label = "Last Name";

$field3 = "phone";
$field3_label = "Phone";



<script language="JavaScript">
function focusform()
<body OnLoad="focusform()">


  if (!empty($insert)) {
    mysql_query( "insert into $table ($field1, $field2, $field3) values (\"$field1_value\",\"$field2_value\",\"$field3_val ue\")");
  if (!empty($update)) {
    mysql_query( "update $table set $field1=\"$field1_value\", $field2=\"$field2_value\",$field3=\"$field3_value\ " where id=$update");
  if (!empty($delete)) {
    mysql_query( "delete from $table where id=$delete");
  if (mysql_errno()!=0) {
    switch (mysql_errno()) {
        echo "Error #".mysql_errno(). " (".mysql_error(). ")<br>";
  if (!$sort) $sort="$field1";
  $query = "select * from $table";
  switch ($sort) {
    case "id": $query=$query. " order by id"; break;
    case "$field1": $query=$query. " order by $field1"; break;
    case "$field2": $query=$query. " order by $field2"; break;
    case "$field3": $query=$query. " order by $field3"; break;
  $result = mysql_query($query);
  $rows = mysql_num_rows($result);
  echo "<table border=1>\n";
  echo "<tr><td><a href=\"?sort=id\">ID</a></td>\n";
  echo "<td><a href=\"?sort=$field1\">$field1_label</a></td>\n";
  echo "<td><a href=\"?sort=$field2\">$field2_label</a></td>\n";
  echo "<td><a href=\"?sort=$field3\">$field3_label</a></td>\n";
  echo "<td>&nbsp;</td><td>&nbsp;</td></tr>\n";

  echo "<form action=\"$PHP_SELF\" method=\"post\">\n";
  echo "<td>New</td>\n";
  echo "<input type=hidden name=insert value=1></td>\n";
  echo "<td><input type=text size=10 name=field1_value value=$today></td>\n";
  echo "<td><input type=text size=10 name=field2_value></td>\n";

  echo "<td colspan=2 align=center>";
  echo "<input type=submit value=\" Add \"></td>\n";
  echo "<td></td>\n";
  echo "</form>\n";

  while ($i<$rows) {
    echo "<tr>\n";
    $id=mysql_result($result,$i, "id");
    if (empty($read) || ($read!=$id)) {
      echo "<td>".$id. "</a></td>\n";
      echo "<td>".mysql_result($result,$i, "$field1"). "</td>\n";
      echo "<td>".mysql_result($result,$i, "$field2"). "</td>\n";
      echo "<td>".mysql_result($result,$i, "$field3"). "</td>\n";
      echo "<td><a href=\"?read=$id\">edit</a></td>\n";
      echo "<td><a href=\"?delete=$id\">delete</a></td>\n";
    } else {
      echo "<form action=\"$PHP_SELF\" method=\"post\">\n";
      echo "<td>".$id. "</a></td>\n";
      echo "<input type=hidden name=update value=\"$id\"></td>\n";
      echo "<td><input type=text size=10 name=field1_value value=\"".mysql_result($result,$i, "$field1"). "\"></td>\n";
      echo "<td><input type=text size=10 name=field2_value value=\"".mysql_result($result,$i, "$field2"). "\"></td>\n";
