Creating mailing labels

40 New Member
I have developed an address book using php and mysql.I have all the contacts list in a table with check boxes.Now that i want to create mailing labels for the checked contacts...i.e. ,the arrangements of addresses should be modified in such a way that there should be 5 addresses in a row of the table...I have done some coding but just dont know how to retrieve the checked contacts..Also. .i have some problem in creating labels in which some contacts are missing while listing out row-wise.My code is as follows:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <?php
  2. $label=mysql_query("select * from address_book where Name LIKE '%$_POST[searchfields]%' or Company LIKE '%$_POST[searchfields]%'") or die("Query failed  ".mysql_error());
  3. ?>
