Put your code in a code PHP block (4th button from left here on top) here on the forum to make it readable. And always make use of braces - it is good programming practice!

The while row is not equal in brackets - 3 versus two - therefore the error. Also not ['0'] but [0].

Language: PHP
<?php $result = mysql_query(" SELECT * from student WHERE sno='$sno'"); if ($result) { $row = mysql_fetch_row($result); $sno=$row[0]; } else { echo "$sno not found!"; } ?>
