HTML tables are fixed by nature, however you can re-define them based on the number of cell data elements you want to populate.

For this example, Iassume all the data is in an array (I like ArrayLists):

myData(17) ' contains 18 data elements

dim output as string = ""
dim rowCellCount as integer = 1 ' initialize to first cell of row
Dim cellsPerRow as integer = 6

For x as integer = 0 to myData.Length -1

If x = 0 ' Build opening table tag & first row tag ...
   output &= "<table>" & vbCrLf
End If

If rowCellCount = 1 Then ' start a row
   output &= "<tr>" & vbCrLf
End If

' add cell with data
output &= "<td>" & myData(x) " </td>"

if rowCellCount = cellsPerRow Then
   ' finish the row ...
   output &= vbCrLf
   output &= "</tr>" & vbCrLf
   rowCellCount =1
Else
   rowCellCount += 1
End If

Next
' table has been populated. End the table
output &= "</table>"

Open in new window


There are a multitude of techniques to use if the data doesn't fully populate the table structure.

Good luck!
