MySql dump to Excel - Using PHP
Hi, I'm trying to get some data dumped into excel from my database. I have the code working to dump from a single table, but i want to combine two different tables and reorganize the headers.

HTML Code:

$stmt1 = "SELECT parentName1, homeaddress, homecity, homezip, homestate FROM user_extra";
$stmt2 = "SELECT firstName, middleName, lastName, email, status FROM user";
$result = mysql_query($stmt1);
$result = mysql_query($stmt2);
$count = mysql_num_fields($result);

// this is as far as i got...

for ($i = 0; $i < $count; $i++){
$header .= mysql_field_name($result, $i)."\t";

while($row = mysql_fetch_row($result)){
$line = '';
foreach($row as $value){
if(!isset($value) || $value == ""){
$value = "\t";
// # important to escape any quotes to preserve them in the data.
$value = str_replace('"', '""', $value);
// # needed to encapsulate data in quotes because some data might be multi line.
// # the good news is that numbers remain numbers in Excel even though quoted.
$value = '"' . $value . '"' . "\t";

$line .= $value;
$data .= trim($line)."\n";
// # this line is needed because returns embedded in the data have "\r"
// # and this looks like a "box character" in Excel
$data = str_replace("\r", "", $data);

// # Nice to let someone know that the search came up empty.
// # Otherwise only the column name headers will be output to Excel.
if ($data == "") {
$data = "\nno matching records found\n";

// # This line will stream the file to the user rather than spray it across the screen
header("Content-Type: application/vnd.ms-excel; name='excel'");
header("Content-type: application/octet-stream");
header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=excelfile.xls");
header("Pragma: no-cache");
header("Expires: 0");

echo $header."\n".$data;

How should I change the query so that I can pull a couple variables from user and some others from user_extra. Then have the headers all display on one line, with the results on the following rows?
