Hey, I'm working on a pretty big php script right now, and I am almost finished, but I can't figure out how to do the database search! I self taught myself perl and php, and never had to go this far in depth, and I really am clueless. Could someone just give me an idea of what to do if I want something like this to happen? This is what the database would look like:
like this: )
row | A | B | C | D | E | F | G | H | I | (other information) |
----------------------------------------------------------
row1 | 2 | 5 | 6 | 3 | 7 | 9 | 5 | 8 | 9 |
row2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 1 | 9 | 7 | 6 | 4 | 0 |
row3 | 7 | 9 | 8 | 1 | 2 | 3 | 7 | 7 | 0 |
row4 | 4 | 7 | 1 | 5 | 4 | 5 | 3 | 7 | 8 |

There would be (many) more rows of course, but for the sake of time I will only list four rows. You would have variables $A, $B, $C, $D, etc. and it would need to display the information (two extra columns) of the rows with the most matching variables.

I can't find a tutorial that goes this far in depth, I would really like it if someone with a reasonable understanding of mysql and php could help me out, the problem is I don't have any money right now, and to be honest I don't want someone to just "do it" for me. I would, of course, be willing to give a part of the website profit?
I would be eternally grateful,
Dan
