The following code produces mixed outputs. The Dist and Invoice column is never the same maybe because the Description is sometimes narrower than another invoice. Any suggestions on how I can tell html to use a "fixed" position on where to start a certain table.
Regards
ps. this is mainly used for html to pdf printing

<table border="0">
<tr>
<td width = "400"><font size="-2"><#DESCRIPTION#></td>
<td width = "500"></td>
<td width = "150"><#DIST#> / <#INV#></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><#ADD1#></td>
<td></td>
<td>4130119151</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><#ADD2#></td>
<td></td>
<td><#ORDERDATE#></td>
</tr>

Did you close your table? </table>

If I understand you right your saying the columns of your table are different width and you don't want it to do that?

I'm kind of confused...

by table do you mean cell?

you can do <td width = '100'>blah</td> to make the cell 100px wide, for example.

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)
