I'm trying to add a simple text box named "Additional Notes" at the bottom of this form. Everytime I add one it messes up the format of the other boxes.....can someone take a look at this code & let me knoe how you'd add a text box so I could type in a few lines of note. The width can be the length of the form so when I print it out it will look normal. Thanks!

<?php 

require('connection.php');

$query="SELECT fid, pact, fname, lname, employee, dock, due_owner, due_attny, due_suspo, due_clerk, interv_date, due_rev, assgn_date, sent_date FROM psrinfo WHERE fid=".$_GET['id'];
$result = mysql_query($query) or die(mysql_error()); 

echo '<form action="checklist.php" method="post">
<h2> <center> Checklist </center></h2>
<table width="75%" border="1">';

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

echo '<tr>

I guess you didn't use a colspan,
example:

<tr>
	<td colspan="4">
		<textarea style="width: 100%"></textarea>
	</td>
</tr>

Just a quick observation...
Why are you closing the TR again on line 41? If unnecessary, that may have formatting consequences.
