php, sql, links and now AW help (newbie)

First let me start by saying I am soooo sorry. I am stupid, slow, and new to java, in fact this is the first I have ever used java except for a few mouse over menu image changing stuff that is very easy and well documented. I am fairly good at php but not that good... I have been working with it for about a year and it was kinda forced on me.... I would rater just fix hardware than write code.
Here is my problem. I have a report our sales reps would like (to know when some software expires so they know when to call) This data lives in our CRM software (SugarCRM) DB but is not easily sorted from there. It also has the unique problem of the date of expiration is NOT a DATE in sql it is a VARCHAR so I had to add lots of extra code to make sure what the sales people put in can actualy be displayed as a date when it pulls back out. The request form the sales people was a report that shows the number of days left until the software expires... so here is the code that displays the list. Then they wanted it sorted.. during my searching for sorting my list I found AW and thought THIS IS GREAT IT CAN SORT IT IN THIS GRID THINGY!!
The current list also has a hyperlink (url to an internal web server) in the customer name that links to their customer ID number that opens that customers record in the web interface of Sugar... I could just pull the id number but the sales reps wanted to see the name of the customer and not just some long id number.

Here is my code and it works fine to just display the report but again I would love to push this data into AW, once I figure this out this would be great for most of the reports I have, I just cant seem to get it to work after 4 days of trying.

There is one include file that just has my db settings, passwords and a few functions

So how do I get the link into grid and the other info that is printed within the foreach command?? Any help would be great!
I do have another report I was working on (this report but trying to add the AW Grid) and was able to get the last item in the loop into the grid but it only showed the last item and would not do the linking...

aaaaawwww Please help if possible and code examples would be great! (especially if I can just plug them right into my current code)
Thanks again!!!
I will post a small screen shot of what my current output looks like if that helps anyone Just let me know
