Hi,

Using the following code, how do I make every second row have a bgcolor #cccccc. Is it detecting an odd/even count number or is there and easier way.

<table>
<tr>
rs sql, cn
while not rs.eof
<td><%= rs("field") %></td>
rs.movenext
wend
</tr>
</table>

Thanks,

t

a small correction on acperkins code, on every two rows not columns, so here is the code that do that:

response.write "<table>"
rs sql, cn
Dim Row
Row = 1
while not rs.eof
     If Row Mod 2 = 0 Then
          response.write "<tr style=""background-color:#cccccc;"">"
     Else
          response.write "<tr>"
     End
     response.write "<td>" & rs("field")  & "</td>"
     rs.movenext
     Row = Row + 1
     response.write "</tr>"
wend
response.write "</table>"

A big correction.  That will teach me not to just copy and paste. Thanks.
