Hi Charley, 
(I had to send this twice, because the maplab list bounced the first message back to me) 

Thanks for your help.  Unfortunately, I do not have the function working yet, but I feel I am close. 
In your posting, are the characters "==" and "||" valid php syntax? 
Also, your posting is just a portion of your query.phtml file right?  Or is that your entire query.phtml file? 

Below is my code, for the areas where I describe my columns of the attribute table.   Do you see any thing that appears incorrect? 
The URL (with photo name) to my jpegs is contained in the column "MS_PATH", the column "photo" contains only the photo name. 

// loop and use key for titles 

// $Key is equal to the attribute name, which is also the header of column
            foreach ($aRows[0] as $key => $value) 
              // The purpose of this if loop is to find the only attribute name we want to dispaly

                                  if (strcasecmp($key, "Long_DD") == "Long_DD"; 
                         strcasecmp($key, "Lat_DD") == "Lat_DD"; 
                         strcasecmp($key, "photo") == "photo"; 
                $szReturnValue .= "<td bgcolor=\"E2EFF5\"><font face=\"Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif\" size=\"2\">".$key."</font></td>\n"; 

// $xcell is the attribute value, in this case,when the $key attribute name is equal to "Long_DD" and "Lat_DD" only display the value of attribute.


                if (strcasecmp($key, "Long_DD") == "Long_DD"; 
                    strcasecmp($key, "Lat_DD") == "Lat_DD" ) 
                {$szReturnValue .= "<td bgcolor=\"#ffffff\"><font face=\"Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif\" size=\"2\">". $xCell."</font></td>\n";} 

//when the attribute name is equal to photo, hyber link the according to the value of attribute, the attribute value of photo should be simliar as http://localhost/photoalbum/image.jpg  

//photoalbum folder with images is put at your web server.

                else if (strcasecmp($key, "photo") == "photo"; 
                {$szReturnValue .= "<td bgcolor=\"#ffffff\"> <a href=\"".$xCell."\"> Click here to document</a></td>\n";}           
                $szReturnValue .= "</tr>\n";
