How to Transfer Data To Other Table in PHP with Source Code

In this tutorial, we will create a how to transfer data to other table in php using MySQLi. This code will move the data to another table when the user click the move button. The system uses MySQLi SELECT to fetch the data that will be transferred to another table and be deleted after transfer using the DELETE query. This a user-friendly program. Feel free to modify and use it for your system.

We will be using PHP as a scripting language that is interpreted in the web server, such as xamp, wamp, etc. It is widely used by modern website application to handle and protect user confidential information.

Getting Started on How to Transfer Data To Other Table in PHP

First, you have to download & install XAMPP or any local server that runs PHP scripts. Here’s the link for the XAMPP server https://www.apachefriends.org/index.html.

And, this is the link for the bootstrap that I used for the layout design https://getbootstrap.com/.

Lastly, this is the link for the jquery that I usedhttps://jquery.com/.

Creating Database

Open your database web server then create a database name in it db_transfer; after that, click Import, then locate the database file inside the folder of the application then click ok.

Creating the database connection

Open your any kind of text editor(notepad++, etc..). Then just copy/paste the code below then name it conn.php.

<?php
    $conn=mysqli_connect("localhost", "root", "", "db_transfer");
 
    if(!$conn){
        die("Error: Failed to connect to database!");
    }
?>

Creating The Interface

This is where we will create a simple form for our application. To create the forms simply copy and write it into your text editor, then save it as index.php.

Creating the PHP Query

This code contains the php query of the application. This code will store the user data inputs to the database server. To make this just copy and write these block of codes below inside the text editor, then save it as save.php.

<?php
    require_once'conn.php';
 
    if(ISSET($_POST['save'])){
        $firstname=$_POST['firstname'];
        $lastname=$_POST['lastname'];
        $address=$_POST['address'];
 
        mysqli_query($conn, "INSERT INTO `member1` VALUES('', '$firstname', '$lastname', '$address')") or die(mysqli_error());
 
        header("location: index.php");
    }
?>

Creating the Main Function

This code contains the main function of the application. This code will move the data in the table when the button is clicked. To make this just copy and write these block of codes below inside the text editor, then save it as transfer.php

<?php
    require_once'conn.php';
 
    if(ISSET($_REQUEST['mem_id'])){
        $mem_id=$_REQUEST['mem_id'];
 
        $query=mysqli_query($conn, "SELECT * FROM `member1` WHERE `mem_id`='$mem_id'") or die(mysqli_error());
        $fetch=mysqli_fetch_array($query);
        $firstname=$fetch['firstname'];
        $lastname=$fetch['lastname'];
        $address=$fetch['address'];
 
 
        mysqli_query($conn, "INSERT INTO `member2` VALUES('', '$firstname', '$lastname', '$address')") or die(mysqli_error());
        mysqli_query($conn, "DELETE FROM `member1` WHERE `mem_id`='$mem_id'") or die(mysqli_error());
 
        echo"<script>alert('Data successfully transfer')</script>";
        echo"<script>window.location='index.php'</script>";
    }
?>
