I had a look at that PDO link and its very comprehensive for people trying to learn on the fly as I'm doing, each project I do is in a way an extension on the previous one with changes and improvements, so its hard to find this info out when your on your own in an office with no one to turn to but this forum.
What 'Im trying to say is that I dont really understand the PDO link properly, so am going to have to spend some time on it and see what the changes mean and what changes to do.
Every day is a learning curve, some days it feels like Im getting there then the next there another huge step to take and not a lot of time to learn it thoroughly.
The mysqli_* is very different too isnt it, am going to try and work out the change I need for the above script.
This forum is awesome though, the users are fantastic.
