I have this code that I want to modify the TH's of.

The TH's hold the team name and I need alternating background colours

The Headings go along the top and the left hand side.

I have been trying to use the Dreamweaver code I have but that keeps giving errors.
Is there any other way to do it?

The Dreameaver code is

// Initialize the Alternate Color counter
$ac_sw1 = 0;

<tr bgcolor="<?php echo ($ac_sw1++%2==0)?"#ffffff":"#dfdfdf"; ?>" onmouseout="this.style.backgroundColor=''" onmouseover="this.style.backgroundColor=''">

What error does the code give you?

I have removed it now but here is how the line looked

$html .= "<th bgcolor="echo ($ac_sw1++%2==0)?"#ffffff":"#dfdfdf";">$teamcolname</th>";

Error code:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ECHO in C:\xampp\htdocs\football\results-grid.php on line 282

You have no need for the command echo in the middle of a string.

Change the line to this
$html .= "<th bgcolor=" . (($ac_sw1++%2==0)?"#ffffff":"#dfdfdf") . ">$teamcolname</th>";

Here is a free extension for Dreamweaver that will create alternating row colors.

Maybe it will be of some help.

Good morning.  I just woke up to find you have accepted an answer to this question, and I did not see your updates over night.  From the code posted below and the answer you accepted, I think you might benefit from a book that could give you something of a foundation in the principles of PHP.  A "parse error" is the most basic of syntax issues, kind of like not knowing what notes to play when you look at a chart of musical chords.  Maybe one day I will write an article about coding standards, but in the mean time, please go buy this book and work through the examples.  It will not make you a professional, but it is easy to read and has plenty of code samples that you can download from the book web site and modify for your own use.

Best of luck with your project, ~Ray
// CODE POST NUMBER ONE IS VERY DIFFERENT FROM CODE POST NUMBER TWO
$ac_sw1 = 0;
<tr bgcolor="<?php echo ($ac_sw1++%2==0)?"#ffffff":"#dfdfdf"; ?>" onmouseout="this.style.backgroundColor=''" onmouseover="this.style.backgroundColor=''">

// CODE POST NUMBER TWO
$html .= "<th bgcolor="echo ($ac_sw1++%2==0)?"#ffffff":"#dfdfdf";">$teamcolname</th>";
