I'm trying to make this output look like the picture attached. The colors and lines I can take care of, I just need help with the layout.

Here is my current code. I appreciate any help.
<?php
$sqlstr = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM Schedule WHERE `Schedule`.`Event` = ' ' ORDER BY `Schedule`.`Date` ASC");

echo "<p align='left'><font face='arial' size='15' color=yellow><i>2010</i></p>";


while($row=mysql_fetch_array($sqlstr)){

echo "</td>";
echo "<td width=110>";
echo $row['PointsAwarded'];
echo date('F l d', strtotime($row['Date']));
echo "</td><td width=485>";
echo $row['Place'];
echo "</td><td width=90>";
echo $row['StartTime'];
echo "</td><td>";
echo $row['Notes'];
echo "</td></tr>";
}

echo "</table>";

?>

I think if you can dump me the table from your sql so i can work on it better


also if you may attach the screen shot html code or file will be easier to guide you


i modified a little your code check below
Good Luck

<?php
##### i removed the condeition (WHERE `Schedule`.`Event` = ' ')
##### i found it useless untill i got a table dump from you
$sqlstr = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM Schedule ORDER BY `Schedule`.`Date` ASC");

echo "<p align='left'><font face='arial' size='15' color=yellow><i>2010</i></p>";
while($row=mysql_fetch_array($sqlstr)){

##### I commented one line and replaced it
##### with another to start the table
echo "<table><tr>";
//echo "</td>";

echo "<td width=110>";
echo $row['PointsAwarded'];
echo date('F l d', strtotime($row['Date']));
echo "</td><td width=485>";
echo $row['Place'];
echo "</td><td width=90>";
echo $row['StartTime'];
echo "</td><td>";
echo $row['Notes'];
echo "</td></tr>";

##### also i added the table closure to
#####the loop so each time you open a table and close it
echo "</table>";

}

?>

Attached is a CSV of the table from the table and more of the page code. Thank you

<table border=1 align="center" width=930>

<tr>

<td><u>Date</u></td>
<td><u>Place</u></td>
<td><u>Start Time</u></td>
<td><u>Notes</u></td>
</tr>

<?php
$sqlstr = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM Schedule WHERE `Schedule`.`Event` = ' ' ORDER BY `Schedule`.`Date` ASC");

echo "<p align='left'><font face='arial' size='15' color=yellow><i>2010</i></p>";


while($row=mysql_fetch_array($sqlstr)){

echo "</td>";
echo "<td width=110>";
echo $row['PointsAwarded'];
echo date('F l d', strtotime($row['Date']));
echo "</td><td width=485>";
echo $row['Place'];
echo "</td><td width=90>";
echo $row['StartTime'];
echo "</td><td>";
echo $row['Notes'];

i think your code will make it look like one big table with all the results i believe you should device your select statement to be month based and then print table per each result

you can also check each result before posting the table of results if it is empty result you can skip or print "no plans" message
