Can anyone else confirm that this function (mysql_field_table()) does NOT work with a mysql query using a UNION in the query?

Reproduce code:

//connect to db

$sql = "(SELECT id, first_name, last_name FROM employees) UNION ALL (SELECT id, first_name, last_name FROM inactive_employees) ORDER BY last_name ASC";

$result = mysql_query($sql) or die(mysql_error());
while($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result))
    echo "Table: " . mysql_field_table($result, 0);
    echo "Field: " . mysql_field_name($result, 0);     
    echo "Value: " . $row['id'];

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions.  Due to the volume
of reports we can not explain in detail here why your report is not
a bug.  The support channels will be able to provide an explanation
for you.

Thank you for your interest in PHP.
