Paging records with multiple column table display help

I have the code below which I edited to try to make a long story short. :)  The paging works fine when I make it one line per record, but when I try to change the value of the lines:

.PageSize = 2
if counter >= 3 then

it does not do what I think it will do.  If I put
.PageSize = 2
if counter >= 3 then

then it should only display only 2 records although it says there will be 3 records per row.

if I put
.PageSize = 24
if counter >= 2 then

Then I should have 24 records showing in rows of 2 on each page.

However, I cannot see what is wrong with the math here I guess.  It's so very confusing to me.  If anyone cares to take a look I would appreciate it greatly!

    dim thisPage, rowcount, i
    thisPage = Trim(Request("thisPage"))
    if thisPage = "" then thisPage = 1
            Set conn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
            conn.Open xDb_Conn_Str      
            strsqlCFG1 = "SELECT * FROM TABLE"
      Set rstempCFG1 = conn.execute(strsqlCFG1)
      if (rstempCFG1.eof) = true then
          Response.write "Nothing to show you."
Set rstempCFG1 = nothing
set rstempCFG1 = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")

    with rstempCFG1
        .CursorType = adOpenStatic
        .PageSize = 3
        .Open "SELECT * FROM TABLE", conn
        .AbsolutePage = cINT(thisPage)

     end with
   rowCount = 0
    while not rstempCFG1.EOF and rowCount < (rstempCFG1.PageSize)
do until rstempCFG1.eof
<td>Data will show here: <%=rstempCFG1("field")
     if counter >= 3 then
            counter = 0
      end if
       counter = counter + 1
       %> <%
            rowCount = rowCount + 1
            if rstempCFG1.eof then
            response.write "</tr>"
        end if
        %> </td>
    Response.Write "<br clear=all>Next Page >"
    for i = 1 to rstempCFG1.PageCount
    %> <a href="page.asp?thisPage=<%=i%>"><%=i%></a> <% next %> <%
end if
end if
set rstempCFG1 = nothing
