Default Problem running PHP locally

I have installed php 4.3.11 on to my Windows XP machine.
I have configured IIS, which seems to be working.

I have created a php info file;


And when I run this it returns the php info data as expected.

I have installed MySQL 3.23.56-nt, which again is running correctly.

Now to the problem.
I have a php file that runs a MySQL Query.

Here is the php file I have created:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<BODY bgcolor="#ffffff">
test Page<br>
    $Database=mysql_connect("localhost","test", "test123");

    $strSQL="SELECT * FROM tbl_ArticleHeader_New";

    $Results = mysql_query($strSQL);

    $Data = mysql_fetch_array($Results);



        echo "<BR>Article Type:".$Data["ArticleType"]."<br>";

        $Data = mysql_fetch_array($Results);


        if ($RecordsFound>3)



When I run this page it loops 3 times as expected, but the variable $Data["ArticleType"] is blank.

I am 100% sure that there is data in the table, and the column is named correctly. If I run the query directly at the MySQL prompt data is returned.

Also, if I upload this code to my webserver and run it online, it does return data. (I have exactly the same database online as I do locally, and I am using exactly the same code.)

So, my question is, why is the array $Data not displaying anything locally?
