First off, I'm a PHP dummy .. and trying to figure out a solution:

Is it possible to query a database for PHP code? And if so, how is that PHP code added to the page?

Basically, I need pages that have


<?php
$id = "unique 6 digit number";
$name = "unique name";
$link = "unique url";
$location = "unique location";
?>


What follows on the page are additional PHP code blocks that present information which is served from a remote server.

My list is about 1,700 lines.

If so, what query syntax do I need to use? It appears that I cannot 'echo' PHP code in the same manner I can 'echo' other data?

you need to use eval() which will evaluate your string as php, instead of echoing it
