This is, for some reason (programmers block!), escaping me. Unfortunately a site that I am creating for a client is hosted on a PHP version 5.2.17 and the host does not provide PHP 5 >= 5.3. I am wanting to select all values in a specific column in a MySQL database to get a total, but I also want to store each one in a variable to work with later. Ive attempted a few loops but I am failing miserably. Can any one give me some insight on how I would go about this or a good function that is supported in the above listed version.
