Hi,
i am trying to output data the way i want but just cant get it to go in the right place. The code i have used is:

for($i=$n_start;$i<=$n_end;$i++)
{

echo "<img src='{$products[$i]['phonepic']}' width='100' height='100'>";
echo "<tr>{$products[$i]['modelNum']}</tr>";
echo "<tr>{$products[$i]['price']}</tr>";
echo "<tr><input type='text'
name='item{$products[$i]['stockID']}' value='0'
size='5'></tr>";

}

As you can see the data is ouput for each item until the loop ends. For each item the data is output correct. However when the data for the next item is ouput, the next item is ouput below the previous item. I want the data for the next item to be ouput on the right hand side of the previous item. How do i do this? Do i need to use a table or something because i cant see how it will work when using this loop??
Thanks.

you're using <tr> tags instead of <td> tags. well, you're supposed to use them together (but this isn't php)

<tr> for row <td> for cell

you're also missing your <table> tag.

Put the <tr> before the loop, the </tr> after the loop, and <td></td> around each element inside the loop.
