Which server language are you using to read from the database and write the web pages?

Once you have read the results into something, like VBScript or PHP, then you can loop through your array and write an html table row for each record from you sp.

For example, the following loop would write the contents of an array in VBScript:

response.write "<html><body><table>"
   for count = 0 to ubound(objMyArray,2)
        response.write "<tr><td>" & objMyArray(1,count) & "</td><td>" & objMyArray(2,count) & "</td><td>" & objMyArray(3,count) & "</td></tr>"  
response.write "</table></body></html>"

try the following code:

set nocount on
create table #t(col1 varchar(15) null,col2 varchar(15) null,col3 varchar(15) null)
insert into #t values('James','123','321')
insert into #t values('Bond','123','321')
insert into #t values('007','123','321')
select '<table border="1"><tr><th>col1</th><th>col2</th><th>col3</th></tr>'
select '<tr><td>'+ltrim(rtrim(col1)),'</td><td>'+col2,'</td><td>'+col3+'</td><tr>' from #t
drop table #t

its output will be like this:

<table border="1"><tr><th>col1</th><th>col2</th><th>col3</th></tr>

----------------------- ------------------------ ---------------------------------
<tr><td>James           </td><td>123             </td><td>321</td><tr>
<tr><td>Bond            </td><td>123             </td><td>321</td><tr>
<tr><td>007             </td><td>123             </td><td>321</td><tr>

Remove the dotted lines,Copy rest in the notepad and save it as '.html'
thats it.

1.Select Results to text option Button and after that run the above query.
2.There will be only two lines always.No matter the rows a table/Query contains.
