Hi guys,

How would i go about querying my sql database and consolidating the results using PHP. For example....

Table 1 -

name amount
person_1 1
person_2 7
person_1 4
person_2 3

Current query
PHP Code:
SQL ' SELECT name, amount FROM table 1'
$query mysql_query($query) or die (mysql_error());
while (
$row mysql_query($query) {
       echo 
"Name =" $row['name'] .   "Amount =" $row['amount'];

Obviously that would display the result very similar to the above table. However i want it to consolidate so using the same data it would look like this...

name amount
person_1 5
person_2 10


Any suggestions how i would go about this??

thanks in advance.
