The company you work for wants to send an email to its member base. They want the email to contain a complementary offer based on their membership level.

We've included a helper.php file that contain the connection to the database and give us a PDO object $db to use. This helper file also contains a function to send_offer. The send_offer function accepts the following arguments: $member_id, $email, $fullname, $level

In the current file, we've included the query to select the required items from the database. The results of the database query are stored in a PDOStatement object named $results. Loop through those results and pass them to the send_offer function.

Tried $results->fetchAll();

and several variants

index.php
<?php
include "helper.php";

try {
    $results = $db->query(
        "SELECT member_id, email, fullname, level FROM members"
    );
} catch (Exception $e) {
    echo $e->getMessage();
}
//add code below this line

$catalog = $results->fetchAll(PDO::FETCH_ASSOC); foreach($catalog as $item ) { send_offer( $item['member_id'], $item['email'], $item['fullname'], $item['level'] ); }
