(PHP 4, PHP 5, PECL odbtp >= 1.1.1)

mssql_fetch_arrayFetch a result row as an associative array, a numeric array, or both


This function was REMOVED in PHP 7.0.0.

Alternatives to this function include:


array mssql_fetch_array ( resource $result [, int $result_type = MSSQL_BOTH ] )

mssql_fetch_array() is an extended version of mssql_fetch_row(). In addition to storing the data in the numeric indices of the result array, it also stores the data in associative indices, using the field names as keys.

An important thing to note is that using mssql_fetch_array() is NOT significantly slower than using mssql_fetch_row(), while it provides a significant added value.



The result resource that is being evaluated. This result comes from a call to mssql_query().


The type of array that is to be fetched. It's a constant and can take the following values: MSSQL_ASSOC, MSSQL_NUM, and MSSQL_BOTH.

Return Values

Returns an array that corresponds to the fetched row, or FALSE if there are no more rows.


Example #1 mssql_fetch_array() example

// Send a select query to MSSQL
$query mssql_query('SELECT [username], [name] FROM [php].[dbo].[userlist]');

// Check if there were any records
if (!mssql_num_rows($query)) {
'No records found';
} else {
// The following is equal to the code below:
    // while ($row = mssql_fetch_row($query)) {

while ($row mssql_fetch_array($queryMSSQL_NUM)) {
// ...

// Free the query result
