    Values not selecting properly from DB

    Hi all,

    I'm working with Shawngo's donation script and am having some problems reading the db field values.

    my DB reports 1 row with values present for both 'goal' and 'actual.' when I change $num_rows from == 1 to == 0 all negative values appear. so it's kinda working :/ there must be something wrong with my code below.

    here is everything i'm working with. any help would be appreciated!

    	/* insert your own connection info here */
    	mysql_connect ("localhost", "root", "admin");  
    	@mysql_select_db($database) or die( "Unable to select database");  
    	$sql = "SELECT * FROM sales_rep";
    	$results = mysql_query($sql);
    	$num_rows = @mysql_num_rows($results);
    	if($num_rows == 1){
    		$pm_data = @mysql_fetch_assoc($results);
    		$upper_bound = $pm_data['goal'];
    		$progress_amount = $pm_data['actual'];
    		$median = $upper_bound / 2;
    		/* if our upper bound is greater than the goal,
    		   we need to display that somehow to our user */
    		$class = ($progress_amount >= $upper_bound) ? ' class="beyond"' : '';
    		$percent_complete = ($progress_amount / $upper_bound) * 100;
    		$percent_complete = $percent_complete > 100 ? 100 : $percent_complete;
    		$median = '$'.number_format($median,0,'',',');
    		$upper_bound = '$'.number_format($upper_bound,0,'',',');
    		$progress_amount = '$'.number_format($progress_amount,0,'',',');
    		$show_progress_meter = true;
