i would not suggest this course as when there are simultaneous users, this will create problems...

better to simply query the particular set of data that you want and count the number of rows returned by the query with mysql_num_rows($result)

okay, lets set it up like this...you have a row of seats (like on an airplane or bus) with seat numbers (A,B,C,D)

now your user is looking to book a seat in row 37 so

$item=$_GET['item']; //this is compromised of two elements
//a row number and a seat number so the
//data looks like 37-A passed by href
//using a link

$data=explode("-",$item); //take apart the data element


$sql="select * from booking where row_no = $row";

//connection information goes here

$result=mysql_query($sql) or die ("can't connect because ".mysql_error());

if (mysql_num_rows($result))==4){

//all seats in row taken
echo "No seats available in this row";

//seats free so reserve or something

} //end if
