say I run a query which has 18 rows returned, how to I output the returned data to a table using the following layout of the data?  I only want 3 columns.

==========
| 1| 7|13|
==========
| 2| 8|14|
==========
| 3| 9|15|
==========
| 4|10|16|
==========
| 5|11|17|
==========
| 6|12|18|
==========


additionally, say there were 19 records returned, how could I dynamically add the 19th record while still using 3 colums?

==========
| 1| 8|15|
==========
| 2| 9|16|
==========
| 3| 10|17|
==========
| 4|11|18|
==========
| 5|12|19|
==========
| 6|13| - |
==========
| 7|14| - |
==========

If I were using classic asp I could do it rather quickly. I know I need to use mod, but I am unsure of the syntax in vb.net to accomplish this task to display the output in this format.

Basically I am looking for someone to help me put the pieces together, with source code.

Hi,

I'm not at my puter at the moment so I can't provide you with a code solution but couldn't you just use a DataList control for this? I know you can specify the number of columns and you could use a template to test for a value, if there is one use it, if not use "-"

If you don't get any joy, I could provide you with the code.

thanks, that is what I was looking for.  I had never used a DataList before and was not aware of the functionality.
