Duplicate results using Dreamweaver Repeat Region

I am using Dreamweaver to create a dynamic application.  I have entered some sample data into my database and verified that it is only entered once.  I have used Dreamweaver to setup a Repeat Region.  When i test the application, it returns duplicate results, (i.e. record 1, record 2, <BR>record 1, record 2).

I have checked over the code and don't see anything that should be causing this problem.  Any Advice?

actually, after further review, the results are showing:

name 1 - result 1
name 1 - result 2
name 2 - result 1(repeat)
name 1 - result 2(repeat)

name is pulled from a separate table than the results.

Here is my DB setup.

users table - ID, name, PW
payees table - ID, name, address, city, state, Zip, acct
bills table - ID, users.ID(foreign), payees.ID(foreign), date submitted, amount, expense line


$colname_rsUsers = "-1";
if (isset($_GET['ID'])) {
  $colname_rsUsers = $_GET['ID'];
}
mysql_select_db($database_conClient, $conClient);
$query_rsUsers = sprintf("SELECT ID, name FROM users WHERE ID = %s", GetSQLValueString($colname_rsUsers, "int"));
$rsUsers = mysql_query($query_rsUsers, $conClient) or die(mysql_error());
$row_rsUsers = mysql_fetch_assoc($rsUsers);
$totalRows_rsUsers = mysql_num_rows($rsUsers);
 
$colname_rsBills = "-1";
if (isset($_GET['ID'])) {
  $colname_rsBills = $_GET['ID'];
}
mysql_select_db($database_conClient, $conClient);
$query_rsBills = sprintf("SELECT UsersID, payeesID, `Date`, Amount, payees.name FROM bills, payees WHERE UsersID = %s", GetSQLValueString($colname_rsBills, "int"));
$rsBills = mysql_query($query_rsBills, $conClient) or die(mysql_error());
$row_rsBills = mysql_fetch_assoc($rsBills);
$totalRows_rsBills = mysql_num_rows($rsBills);
?>
 
//normal head data //
 
<div id="bills">
  <h2>Your Existing Bills</h2>
   <?php do { ?>
     <?php echo $row_rsBills['name']; ?> - $<?php echo $row_rsBills['Amount']; ?> - <?php echo $row_rsBills['Date']; ?><br />
     <?php } while ($row_rsBills = mysql_fetch_assoc($rsBills)); ?>
 
    <a href="addBill.php">Add New Bill</a>
</div>

Okay, then that behavior is "normal"

If you are pulling from two tables at once with a one-to-many relationship, the master row will repeat so long at the child rows match.

What you need to do is create a nested repeating region that limits the iteration of the master row while the child repeats.  Tom Muck has written an extension for you:

Oops, figured it out.

that worked for the name field, however, now it displays

name1 - record 1
- record 2
name 2 - record 1
- record 2

You'll have to play around with how you are returning the data to get it to work the way you want.
