repeating <th> tag to appear every number of lines

Hi

How do you repeat the header of a table to appear every say 30 lines of a table?

say for example i have a table with about 7 columns and maybe 200 lines. If I scroll down to halfway down the query i cannot see the header of the table anymore to see which column is which. So to make it easier, is it possible to repeat the header of the table every 30 lines?

Cheers

yes, you'll have to post the code that generates the table. here's a start

$header_counter = 0;

while (...)
{
  if (mod($header_counter,30)==0)
   echo "<tr><th>Name</th>.... \n";

  echo "<tr><td>$name.....\n";
  $header_counter++;
}
0

That did not seem to do the trick... I only displays the first row of the data and when cliking on the first row, it shows the secon and when clicking on the second it shows the third and so on...

Michael701Commented:
Well that has to do with the javascript and css display:none

On the page. View generated code and post the html here.

I have it working now so that it repeats the header every 30 rows but it is hidden...

Michael701Commented:
Then I'd double check the pairing of the html tags. Maybe run the generated code through an html validator.

or it could be  that it's getting the hidden tag from a parent object.

If you get stuck, post the generated html code

I have run through html validator (CSE) and found no problems... So i played around with where the $header counter sits and got it to work.

Thanks for your help Michael.
