Hello, as in many cases, brand new to MYSQL and PHP.

I have a 119 record MYSQL that I am querying through PHP. I would like to display as three columns.

Here is some of the code, is there a way to use this code then disply as three equal columns?

$db = mysql_connect("localhost", " ", " ");
mysql_select_db(" ");
$query = "SELECT * FROM members";

$result = mysql_query($query) or die(mysql_error());

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)){
echo $row['Company_Name'];
echo "<br />";
echo "Contact: ";
echo $row['First_Name'] . " ". $row['Last_Name'];
echo "<br />";
echo $row['Mailing_Address'];
echo "<br />";
echo $row['Mailing_City']. ", ". $row['Mailing_State']. " ". $row['Mailing_Zip_Code'];
echo "<br />";
echo "Phone: ";
echo $row['Phone_Number'];
echo "<br />";
echo "Fax: ";
echo $row['Fax_Number'];
echo "<br />";
echo "<br />";

Thanks in advance!

Hey Ron, it appears you have around 5 items (Company Name, Name, Mailing Address, Phone Number, Fax Number). Do each of these items deserve their own column? Basically, I am asking what the column header names should be?

Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
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 :)
