    Hello friends,
    Say i am having two array : ex1 and ex2 (both are associative array)
    Can i compare array ex1 's value with array ex2 's key ?
    Here is the example code i am trying to implement but ..
    Code:
    <?php 
    
    $marks=array('Odiy'=>'52' , 'Urdu'=>'69');
    
    
    
    $postt=array ( 0=> array('id'=>'6', 'class_ref'=>'2nd' , 'subject_name'=>'Odiy') , 1=> array('id'=>'7', 'class_ref'=>'2nd' , 'subject_name'=>'Urdu') );
    
    foreach($postt as $foo)
    {
    foreach($marks as $s)
    {
    if($foo['subject_name']==$s)
    {
    	echo "Hello";	
    }
    else 
    echo "NOT right";
    }
    }
    var_dump($postt);
    var_dump($marks);
    ?>
    Show it in example ?
    Thanks for the reply friends.
    Take Care !

    Lets me thanks http://php.net for giving me the base for R&D.
    And the most importantly to @Shabbir sir ; for letting me know that above stated query is possible.

    Coming to the solution part;
    U cannot compare the Key of one array with the value of another array.
    If u want to then u have to first make array whose values will the key of the array u are wanting to compare.
    Then compare the two values of the array (one array's value are the key for another value ).

    PHP:
    <?php 

    $marks
    =array('Odiy'=>'52' 'Urdu'=>'69');

    $postt=array ( 0=> array('id'=>'6''class_ref'=>'2nd' 'subject_name'=>'Odiy') , 1=> array('id'=>'7''class_ref'=>'2nd' 'subject_name'=>'Urdu') );

    $keys=array_keys($marks);  // Here u are changing the keys to values of another array.

    foreach($postt as $foo)
    {
    foreach(
    $keys as $s)
    {
    if(
    $foo['subject_name']==$s)
    {
        echo 
    "Hello"."<br>";    
    }
    else 
    continue;
    }
    }

    ?>
    The above prints:
    Hello
    Hello
    ..................................................................
    This is what i got if u have any please share.
    Thanking you.
    Good day.

    Found another way of bypassing it.
    PHP:
    <?php 

    $marks
    =array('Odiy'=>'52' 'Urdu'=>'69');

    $postt=array ( 0=> array('id'=>'6''class_ref'=>'2nd' 'subject_name'=>'Odiy') , 1=> array('id'=>'7''class_ref'=>'2nd' 'subject_name'=>'Urdu') );

    $keys=array_keys($marks);

    for(
    $i=0;$i<count($postt);$i++)
    {
    for(
    $j=0;$j<count($keys); $j++)
    {
        if(
    $j==$i)
        {
    echo 
    $postt[$i]['subject_name'];
    echo 
    $keys[$j];
        echo 
    "<br>";    
    }
    else 
    continue;
    }
    }


    var_dump($marks);
    var_dump($postt);
    var_dump($keys);
    ?>
    We can compare the index of the array using 'for' loop .
    Did a small change that to make the the index of the marks turn to integer.
    LoVe playing !
    Take care !

    Hey, try this :
    Code:
    <?php
      $a = array(
        "who" => "you", 
        "what" => "thing", 
        "where" => "place",
        "when" => "hour"
      );
      // the haystack array
      $b = array(
        "when" => "time", 
        "where" => "place", 
        "who" => "you",
        "what" => "thing"
      );
      $c = count(array_intersect($a, $b));
      echo $c;
    ?>
