Hi,
The first way is to create those pages as static HTML pages on your server once and include links to other pages in every one of them. Advantage is that you process one request only. Disadvantage - you can't understand when the user will finish his work to delete the pages.

The second way is to create the first page only. Then create next/previous page on every request and use SQL to fetch next data based on the page number and the quantity of records per page.

Regards, Geo
