Description

string PDOStatement::fetchColumn ( [int column_number] )

Returns a single column from the next row of a result set.

Parameters

column_number

0-indexed number of the column you wish to retrieve from the row. If no value is supplied, PDOStatement::fetchColumn() fetches the first column.

Return Values

PDOStatement::fetchColumn() returns a single column in the next row of a result set.

Warning

There is no way to return another column from the same row if you use PDOStatement::fetchColumn() to retrieve data.

Examples

Example 1. Return first column of the next row

<?php
$sth
= $dbh->prepare("SELECT name, colour FROM fruit");
$sth->execute();

/* Fetch the first column from the next row in the result set */
print("Fetch the first column from the next row in the result set:\n");
$result = $sth->fetchColumn();
print(
"name = $result\n");

print(
"Fetch the second column from the next row in the result set:\n");
$result = $sth->fetchColumn(1);
print(
"colour = $result\n");
?>

The above example will output:

Fetch the first column from the next row in the result set:
name = lemon
Fetch the second column from the next row in the result set:
colour = red
