Hi,
    I have a php page which polls a database and then creates a table based on the results, however I need to add pagination.  Ideally showing the page number, and also a dropdown to select the number of rows, something like 5, 10, 15 or 20 at a time?

This is my code so far:

<?php



$db="database";

$link = mysql_connect("localhost","user","pass");

if (! $link)

die("Couldn't connect to MySQL");



mysql_select_db($db)

or die("Couldn't open $db: ".mysql_error());


$searchdata = $_GET['field'];

$data = $_GET['DoID'];    

$resultall = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM maindata WHERE gpname LIKE '%".$_GET['field']."%' OR postcode LIKE '%".$_GET['field']."%' OR area LIKE '%".$_GET['field']."%' OR Do LIKE '%".$_GET['DoID']."%'")or die("SELECT Error: ".mysql_error());

$num_rows = mysql_num_rows($resultall);



?>



<html>



<head>

<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-gb">

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">

<title>Search Results</title>

<style>
.whiteBackground { background-color: #9DC3E6; }
.grayBackground { background-color: #DBE8F6; }
</style>

</head>



<body>



<div align="center">

<br>

<font face="Arial" size="2" color="#CC0000"><a href="./">

<font color="#CC0000">Back to search option</font></a></font><br>



      &nbsp;<p><b><font face="Tahoma" size="6">Results</font></b></p>

      <p>&nbsp;</p>

      <div align="center">

      <br>

      <font face="arial" size="4" color="'FF0000"><strong><?php echo $num_rows; ?></strong> Results Returned</font><br><br>

<div align="center">

      <table border="0" width="1000" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">

            <tr>

                  <td width="23%" height="100" valign="top"><b><font face="Arial"><u>Practice Name</u></font></b></td>

                  <td width="5%" height="100" valign="bottom">

                  <p align="center"><font face="Arial" size="1">Tick to Compare</font></td>

                  <td width="18%" height="100" background="http://www.h.co.uk.co.uk/gpw-admin/images/filler1.png">

                  <b><font face="Arial">Booking &amp; </font></b>
                  <p><b><font face="Arial">Contact</font></b></td>

                  <td width="18%" height="100" background="http://gpwatch.healthwatchsandwell.co.uk/gpw-admin/images/filler2.png">&nbsp;</td>

                  <td width="18%" height="100" background="http://www.h.co.uk.co.uk/gpw-admin/images/filler3.png">&nbsp;</td>

                  <td width="18%" height="100" background="http://www.h.co.uk/gpw-admin/images/filler4.png">&nbsp;</td>



            </tr>

      </table>

</div><br><br>

<?php

 while ($rows1 = mysql_fetch_array($resultall)) {  

        $x++;

 $class = ($x%2 == 0)? 'whiteBackground': 'graybackground';

 ?>

          <div align="center">

      <table border="0" width="1000" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">

            <tr class=<?php echo $class; ?>>

                  <td width="23%" height="40"><b><font face="Arial" size="2">&nbsp;&nbsp;<?php echo $rows1['gpname']; ?></font></b></td>

            <td width="5%">

            <p align="center"><b><font face="Arial"><input type="checkbox" name="comparecheck" value="OFF"></font></b></td>

                  <td width="18%"><b><font face="Arial"><u></u></font></b></td>

                  <td width="18%"><b><font face="Arial"><u></u></font></b></td>

                  <td width="18%"><b><font face="Arial"><u></u></font></b></td>

                  <td width="18%"><b><font face="Arial"><u></u></font></b></td>

            </tr>

      </table>

</div>

  </div>

  <?php

  }

?>

</body>
