I have a simple query for address label.  

select fname, lname, addr, city, st, zip
from demo

I want to print three addresses per row so that I can save trees.

One way is using MOD and the #queryName.CurrentRow# variable to start a new row every 3 columns.


<table width="600">
<tr><cfoutput query="yourQuery">
	<td>#fName#	#lName#<br>
		#addr#<br>
		#city#, #state# #zip#
	</td>
	<cfif currentRow MOD 3 EQ 0></tr><tr></cfif>
	</cfoutput>
</tr>
</table>
