ocidefinebyname

(PHP 3>= 3.0.7, PHP 4 )

ocidefinebyname --  Use a PHP variable for the define-step during a SELECT

Description

bool ocidefinebyname ( resource stmt, string column_name, mixed &variable [, int type])

ocidefinebyname() binds PHP variables for fetches of SQL-Columns. Be careful that Oracle uses ALL-UPPERCASE column-names, whereby in your select you can also write lowercase. ocidefinebyname() expects the column_name to be in uppercase. If you define a variable that doesn't exists in your select statement, no error will be given!

If you need to define an abstract datatype (LOB/ROWID/BFILE) you need to allocate it first using ocinewdescriptor(). See also the ocibindbyname() function.

Example 1. ocidefinebyname() example

<?php
/* OCIDefineByName example - thies at thieso dot net (980219) */

$conn = OCILogon("scott","tiger");

$stmt = OCIParse($conn,"select empno, ename from emp");

/* the define MUST be done BEFORE ociexecute! */

OCIDefineByName($stmt,"EMPNO",$empno);
OCIDefineByName($stmt,"ENAME",$ename);

OCIExecute($stmt);

while (OCIFetch($stmt)) {
    echo "empno:".$empno."\n";
    echo "ename:".$ename."\n";
}

OCIFreeStatement($stmt);
OCILogoff($conn);
 ?>
