I have a php switch statement and for some reason php switch is only executing the default code in the default block but not in the case block, i check if my variable is isset first, then use switch to select data from my DB, even if i do var_dump($cname); it shows that variable $cname corresponds with my first case, what is the problem here?

here is the code:

Code: Select all

$sel = 1; 
    $sql = "(select * from insurance_companies WHERE id='$eop' LIMIT $sel)"; 
    foreach ($pdo->query($sql) as $row){  
    $cID = $row['id'];   
    $cname = $row['name'];           
 if  (isset($cname)) { 
                    switch ($cname) { 
                        case 'CASH': 
                            $query= "SELECT test FROM cash_procedures WHERE test LIKE '%$did%'"; 
                 $result= $con->query($query); 

                              $query= "SELECT test FROM procedures WHERE test LIKE '%$did%'"; 
                 $result= $con->query($query);

Try changing
switch ($cname)
switch (trim(strtoupper($cname)))

You never know when your value can comes in with a hanging space or wrong case. Then as you are already doing always case for the upper case value.
