I have a vertical looper that shows the records in alphabetical order in my code if i have more than 40 records it creates a new colum. what i need is the code below to show 50% of the records or all in two colums. I tried a horzontal looper but that changes the alpha order. here is the code im using.

------------------code-------------------
<?php
$rows_RsAdvertise = 40;
$cols_RsAdvertise = ceil($totalRows_RsAdvertise/ 40);
for ($i=0; $i<$rows_RsAdvertise; $i++) {
      for ($j=0; $j<$cols_RsAdvertise; $j++) {
            $currentIndex_RsAdvertise = $i + $rows_RsAdvertise * $j;
            if (@mysql_data_seek($RsAdvertise, $currentIndex_RsAdvertise)) {
                  $row_RsAdvertise = mysql_fetch_assoc($RsAdvertise);
?>

Is this what you looking for ?

<table width="200" border="0" align="center">
<?php
$n = 13;
$max = ceil(13/2);
$max_n = $max;
for ($i = 1; $i <= $max; $i++)
{
	$table .= '<tr><td align="center">' . $i . '</td>';
	($max_n + $i <= $n) ? $table .= '<td align="center">' . ($max_n + $i) . '</td></tr>' : '';
}
echo $table;

@Michael701: Oh, I didn't see your post.

Btw, at my code
$max = ceil(13/2);
should change to
$max = ceil($n/2);
