    i have a problem, that i want to match two tables in database called post jobs and user2 which models employees CVs ; i want to match between the two tables in order to filter CVs and choose at end qualified applicants in online employment system.

    include 'connect.php';
    //$query = "SELECT user2.cpos, "."FROM user2, postjobs ".
    //    "WHERE postjobs.jcat = user2.jcat";
    $query = "SELECT count(user2.Id) FROM (SELECT * "FROM user2, postjobs" . "WHERE postjobs.jcat = user2.jcat");
    $result = mysql_query($query) or die(mysql_error());

    // Print out the contents of each row into a table
    while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)){
        //echo $row['post']." - ". $row['cpos'];
        echo $row['count(user2.Id)'];
        echo "<br />";

    what kind of error were you getting.....

    looks like the mysql syntax isn't quite right....
    if this is the case, echo the query, and try it in mysql query browser (of whatever you have) and see what the error is...

    Toss a var_dump($row) into the while loop and comment out the second echo.  That might give you a point in the right direction.  I think you may have meant mysql_fetch_assoc instead of mysql_fetch_array.  You're going to have to be more specific on the problem, though.
