msql_result -- Get result data


string msql_result ( resource result, int row [, mixed field] )

msql_result() returns the contents of one cell from a mSQL result set.

When working on large result sets, you should consider using one of the functions that fetch an entire row (specified below). As these functions return the contents of multiple cells in one function call, they are often much quicker than msql_result().

Recommended high-performance alternatives: msql_fetch_row(), msql_fetch_array(), and msql_fetch_object().



The result resource that is being evaluated. This result comes from a call to msql_query().


The row offset.


Can be the field's offset, or the field's name, or the field's table dot field's name (tablename.fieldname.). If the column name has been aliased ('select foo as bar from ...'), use the alias instead of the column name.

Note: Specifying a numeric field offset is much quicker than specifying a fieldname or tablename.fieldname.

Return Values

Returns the contents of the cell at the row and offset in the specified mSQL result set.
