dbase_get_record_with_names — Gets a record from a database as an associative array


array dbase_get_record_with_names ( int $dbase_identifier , int $record_number )

Gets a record from a dBase database as an associative array.



The database link identifier, returned by dbase_open() or dbase_create().


The index of the record.

Return Values

An associative array with the record. This will also include a key named deleted which is set to 1 if the record has been marked for deletion (see dbase_delete_record()).

Each field is converted to the appropriate PHP type, except:

  • Dates are left as strings.
  • Integers that would have caused an overflow (> 32 bits) are returned as strings.

On error, dbase_get_record_with_names() will return FALSE.


Example#1 Listing all the registered members in the database

// open in read-only mode
$db dbase_open('/tmp/test.dbf'0);

if (
$db) {
$record_numbers dbase_numrecords($db);
  for (
$i 1$i <= $record_numbers$i++) {
$row dbase_get_record_with_names($db$i);
      if (
$row['ismember'] == 1) {
"Member #$i: " trim($row['name']) . "\n";
