I got it kind of working so far with the code below, how would i wrap it in a table so there is atleast spacing between the entries
<?php  require_once("includes/db_connection.php"); ?>
 
 
<?php
 
$sql = "SELECT * from tblbasicform";
$res = mysql_query($sql) or die(mysql_error());
 
 
while($row = MYSQL_FETCH_ARRAY($res))
{
echo "$row[name]";
echo "$row[email]";
echo "$row[location]<br>";
}
 
 
?>

How do you want your output to look like? Something like the one below?
echo '<table>';
 
while($row = MYSQL_FETCH_ARRAY($res))
{
echo '<tr>';
echo "<td>$row[name]</td>";
echo "<td>$row[email]</td>";
echo "<td>$row[location]</td>";
echo '</tr>';
}
 
</table>
