There are no record numbers when using a relational db unless you put them there yourself as one of the fields. mysql has an auto_increment keyword that can be used when creating a table that will, you guessed it, auto_increment an integer data type and assign the next integer to a record when it is inserted.

okay, i understand that, but can somebody
tell me how to find out the row number
of an array ??
i get the result, but after it i want
to know on which row i am while doing
a do..while.. loop.

If that's important you should probably use a for loop.

even if i do a for loop,
i still want to know the array number
which is being handles

You would use the index of the for loop to index your array.
