Ok, I have returned a field from my database named “description” and have done so using DISTINCT as to only get unique values.
This outputs something like “Vauxhall Corsa 1.2 SXI” and if there were 2 like that it would only get one which is what I wanted, however I am now building search fields and need the “Make” field to only return the Make of each car, so “Vauxhall” and the problem being that even though these 2 are unique…
Vauxhall Corsa 1.2 SXI
Vauxhall Astra 1.4
I need to only return the make so “Vauxhall”.
I used an explode function to only return the first word “Vauxhall” and put this in a while loop as to return the make for each car. Problem is now that I have…
And I need to onlydisplay 1 instance of each word and “array_unique” doesn’t seem to be having any effect.
Here is the chunk of mentioned code…
$sql = “SELECT DISTINCT * FROM database”;
$query = mysql_query($sql);
while ($search = mysql_fetch_array($query))
$explode = explode(" ", trim($search[‘description’]));
echo “<option class = “make”>”;
PLEASE help urgently!
