table records split across multipe pages.

I have all my table records displaying on a single page this was fine at the start but our database has grown over time, I have seen on other sites table records split across multiple pages.  Can this be achieved using dream weaver mx?

In the DreamWeaverMX interface is your application tab...
you will see an icon on this tab with a green background with arrows on it... < << >> >
click on this it will allow you to add in a record set navigation bar...this bar will let you navigate through your record set.

if you post some code i can talk you through it................

on your repeated region ive changed it so that it will only display 10 records per page,
you can change this to whatever amount you need....

when your page first opens at the base of the page will be your Record Set Navigation bar
it will have the text Next and Last as links if you click on next...the page will go off and fetch the next ten records in your table....if you look at the base of the page now the record set navigation bar has changed now you have the links

FIRST PREVIOUS NEXT AND LAST

First will Bring you to the start of your record set
Previous will bring you to the previous 10 records in your table
Next will bring you to the next 10 records in your table
Last will bring you to the last 10 records in your table (the end or your records set).

as i said you can change the amount of records to display on each page to any number you want.


Thanks
