mssql_query — Send MS SQL query


mixed mssql_query ( string $query [, resource $link_identifier [, int $batch_size ]] )

mssql_query() sends a query to the currently active database on the server that's associated with the specified link identifier.



A SQL query.


A MS SQL link identifier, returned by mssql_connect() or mssql_pconnect().

If the link identifier isn't specified, the last opened link is assumed. If no link is open, the function tries to establish a link as if mssql_connect() was called, and use it.


The number of records to batch in the buffer.

Return Values

Returns a MS SQL result resource on success, TRUE if no rows were returned, or FALSE on error.


Note: If the query returns multiple results then it is necessary to fetch all results by mssql_next_result() or free the results by mssql_free_result() before executing next query.
