print() only takes one argument, note the difference between print and 

It seems to be quite useless to go for printf() in such a simple case 

You could simply type
print "<td align=left nowrap width=180>" . $arr["0"] . "</td>";

You'd do well to wrap the $arr["0"] inside a htmlspecialchars() call so 
people couldn't inject malicious html code into your page.

FreeTDS list for problems such as this.
