HI all THis is my cod eits all working but im not sure how to implament alternative coloums


this line will echo out a coloum with the radio button and a name from the db
<th width="200" align="left" valign="top" scope="col"><input name="radio<?=$count?>" type="radio" value="radiobutton" /><?=$name?></th>

but if on the next line as you would expect if i make it identical to this one it will echo the results out twice

i wish to have two coloums and echo out the results in order for example

left coloum then right coloum
and so on untill the db is empty

mysql_connect ($dbhost, $dbuser, $dbpass) or die (mysql_error () );
mysql_select_db ($dbname) or die (mysql_error () );
$sql="SELECT * FROM users ";
$query=mysql_query ($sql) or die (mysql_error ());

$count=mysql_num_rows ($query);

while ($row=mysql_fetch_array ($query) or die (mysql_error ()))
{
$name=$row['real_name'];
?>
<table width="400" border="0" cellspacing="2" cellpadding="2">
<tr>
<th width="200" align="left" valign="top" scope="col"><input name="radio<?=$count?>" type="radio" value="radiobutton" /><?=$name?></th>
<th width="200" align="left" valign="top" scope="col">&nbsp;</th>
</tr>
</table>
<? }?>

Hi, you need to have the <table> tag OUTSIDE the loop...

Try this:

<?
    mysql_connect ($dbhost, $dbuser, $dbpass) or die (mysql_error () );
    mysql_select_db ($dbname) or die (mysql_error () );
    $sql="SELECT * FROM users ";
    $query=mysql_query ($sql) or die (mysql_error ());

    $count=mysql_num_rows ($query);

    if($count > 0)
    {
        $i = 0;
?>
        <table width="400" border="0" cellspacing="2" cellpadding="2">
<?
        while ($row=mysql_fetch_array($query) or die (mysql_error ()))
        {
            $name=$row['real_name'];
            if(($i++)%2 == 0)
            {
?>
            <tr>
<?
            }
?>
                <th width="200" align="left" valign="top" scope="col">
                    <input name="radio<?=$count?>" type="radio" value="radiobutton" /> <?=$name?>
                </th>
<?
            if(($i)%2 == 0)
            {
?>
            </tr>
<?
            }
        }
?>
        </table>
<?
    }
?>
