Okay. I've been learning PHP for some time, but this will be one of my first real attempts to create something with it. I've kind of got an idea of what I'm doing, but I need to know how to grab database entries by specifying the value of one of the fields. E.g.. ID - Name - Species 1 - Mark - Human 2 - Zulu - Alien 3 - Rooly - Alien 4 - Billy - Human How can I grab all database entries with the Species value of "Alien"? I'll be then trying to display them like this: CODE echo "ID: {$row['id']} - " . "Name: {$row['name']} - " . "Species: {$row['species']}<br>"; And repeating it to create a table listing Alien characters

Have you tried something along the lines of this?
$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM MyTable WHERE Species='Alien'");

//validate $result...

while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result)) {
	echo "ID: {$row['id']} - " .
		 "Name: {$row['name']} - " .
		 "Species: {$row['species']}<br>";

Assuming you have already established the DB connection, and "MyTable" is the name of your table.

I haven't done PHP+MYSQL for a long time, but that's the gist of general db queries if I remember rightly. Take your time to teach yourself MYSQL - a clever MYSQL query can save you a lot of time/php code.

Hope that helps.
