ASP.NET VB display data results alphabetically by column, 3 columns

I want to display 500 alphabetized items (pulled from a column in a database) in 3 columns on my page, alphabetized down by column.   How do I do this?   Gridview seems to only let each column match a DB column giving me 1 column all the way down.  I can dynamically create a table using a datareader such as
response.write(<td>dr("item")</td>)

but then it will be alphabetized across.

I already have all the SQL coding taken care of, now just how to dump it on my page in 3 columns.

what is the best way to this?

Thanks!
