Outputting data in wrong places

Recommended Posts

The trouble i am is that all the headings for my table are being output and then the values in the columns are being output below the table. I want them in the following format:

OrderID 200 233 ...
Surname Smith Terry ...

...

The code i am using is:

[i]echo "<table cellspacing='20'>";
$connect = connect_to_db("cnn.inc");
$query = "select * from products";
$result = mysql_query($query,$connect)
or die("sql_del: ".mysql_error($connect));

echo "<tr>OrderID</tr><br>";
while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
{
echo "<td>";
echo($row['orderID'].'<br>');
echo"</td>";
}
echo "<tr>Surname</tr><br>";
while($row1 = mysql_fetch_array($result))
{
echo "<td>";
echo($row['surname'].'<br>');
echo"</td>";
}[/i]

I cant see what i have done wrong here. In addition to this only the values for orderID are output and the values stored for surname are not ouput unless i get rid of the array displaying the orderID's. Your help would be appreciated.
Thanks.

How about this?
[code]<?
$connect = connect_to_db("cnn.inc");
$query = "SELECT * FROM products";
$result = mysql_query($query,$connect) or die("sql_del: ".mysql_error($connect));

echo '<table cellspacing="20">';

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
{
echo '<tr><td>OrderID</td><td>'.$row['orderID'].'</td></tr>
      <tr><td>Surname</td><td>'.$row['surname'].'</td></tr>';
}

echo '</table>';
?>[/code]

As I said in previous topic of yours, data in tables needs to go in a cell eg <TD>data</TD>

You have rows like this

[code]echo "<tr>OrderID</tr><br>";[/code]

where the text isn't inside a cell and the <br> isn't even in a row (and completely unnecessary)
