Trying to build my query by fetching column names from the selected table

should help you out I've changed the function slightly to pass in the fields which you access using global (as this isn't recommended). So you will have to alter the call to getTableDetails().
mysqli_fetch_fields() is used to return the fields which are part of the result set, as this is from a describe, you were fetching the fields which were the return values of the describe rather than the fields in the table. Instead you need to use mysqli_fetch_assoc() which returns the rows of data from the statement.
code :
function getTableDetails( $con, $user, $table_name) {
    $describeTable = mysqli_query($con, "DESCRIBE " . $user . "." . $table_name);

    $fields = [];
    while($show = mysqli_fetch_assoc($describeTable)) {
        $columnName = $show['Field'];
        // Extract length from field type (if any)
        preg_match('#\((.*?)\)#', $show['Type'], $match);
        $fields[$columnName] = ['column_name' => $show['Field'],
            'column_length' => $match[1]??0,
            'column_type' => $show['Type']];        

    return $fields;

$table = getTableDetails( $con, $user, "articles");
foreach ($table as $columnName) {

fetching db column names only, for display in dynamic table using php

fetching db column names only, for display in dynamic table using php

By : Joshua Shen
Date : March 29 2020, 07:55 AM
around this issue in the code below Im searching specific columns from a db table and placing them into a html table, inserting   for empty db fields to maintain uniformed structure. That part works fine, but Im having trouble figuring out the best way to go about getting the column names that are being searched and dynamically displaying them once at the very top of the html table? If my search changes, the column names displayed on the html table will change with it accordingly. Im fairly new to php/mysql and would appreciate any help guys. , How about something like this:
code :
$result = mysql_query('SELECT part, ers, make, model, years, oe, core, inlet, outlet FROM parts LIMIT 3');
echo '<table>';

$cnt = 0;
while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result, MYSQL_ASSOC)) {
    if ($cnt == 0) {
        $columns = array_keys($row);
        echo '<tr><th>' . implode('</th><th>', $columns) . '</th></tr>';

    echo '<tr>';

    foreach ($row as $name => $value) {
        if ( $value == "" ) $value="&nbsp;";
        echo '<td> '.$value.' </td>'; 

    echo '</tr>'; 

echo "</table>";

seems to work fine I don't think this is possible in pure SQL due to the dynamic nature of your requirement. You'll need some form of PL/SQL.
Assuming you're ok with simply outputting the desired results, here is a PL/SQL block that will get the job done:
code :
  wExists number(1);
  for rec in (select * from your_dynamic_table)
    execute immediate 'select count(*)
                         from dual
                        where exists (select null
                                        from ' || rec.table_name || ' t
                                       where length(t.' || rec.column_name || ') > ' || rec.char_length || ')'
    into wExists;

    if wExists = 1 then
    end if;
  end loop;
Fetching Column Names From Same Table Where Conditions

Fetching Column Names From Same Table Where Conditions

Hope this helps I need columns names from table with condition satisfying on the same table. say if column named 'size' has value '22', while it should check for same value in 24 columns named starting as 'sizecaption1,sizecaption24', and return column names holding the value '22' for each row. This is I tried, but it doesnt works for me: , Based on your sparse specification you could try along
code :
    IF(sizecaption1 = size, 'sizecaption1 ', ''),
    IF(sizecaption2 = size, 'sizecaption2 ', ''),
    IF(sizecaption3 = size, 'sizecaption3 ', ''),
    IF(sizecaption4 = size, 'sizecaption4 ', ''),
    IF(sizecaption5 = size, 'sizecaption5 ', ''),
    IF(sizecaption6 = size, 'sizecaption6 ', '')
    )) AS result
