Did you mean something like this : (see screenshot)

Then it's not really a PHP-issue, it's CSS/HTML stuff :-)

Your script:
echo "<tr><td>Last Spoke To:</td><td>".$row['last_spoke_to']."</td></tr>";

Open in new window


Change it to:
echo "<tr><td>Last Spoke To:</td><td>"
[b]<div style="width: [u]190px[/u];height: [u]250px[/u];overflow:auto;">
[/b].$row['last_spoke_to'].[b]</div>[/b]"</td></tr>";

Open in new window


Adjust the width and height accordingly.

sorry, I put the "new" version betweet code-tags.

It should be like this:

echo "<tr><td>Last Spoke To:</td><td>"
<div style="width: 190px;height: 250px;overflow:auto;">
.$row['last_spoke_to'].</div>"</td></tr>";
