    Hi,

    I'm creating a new site using Frontpage2003 and can't seem to get the Rows and Columns Tag to work when creating index files.

    I just get a long list. All I'm doing is trying to create an index of 10 items per page but I want 2 columns and obviously 5 rows.

    All I get is 10 rows. Not helpful. Other then that WebMerge is great !!

    Using the WM-RECORD tag you can specify the number of columns and the page width. The number of rows will be generated automatically according to the number of records that are found for that index page. In your case the coding should be some like the following:

    [WM-RECORD cols=2 width=800]
    OTHER WM CODES
    [/WM-RECORD]

    If that doesn't work, then post the HTML that you are trying to use to see if someonne can identify your problem.

    Hi Frank,

    They are the tags I have used, have just noticed that when I use WebMerge it puts the column width number in " " (speech marks).

    I assume that the number should not be in any marks, as your post above shows.

    I'll give that a try. Many thanks.

    It's my understanding that the W3C defines "well-formed" atributes as those with values contained in quotes.

    Is that not the case with the width attribute for tables?

    I also tried this but didn't quite get it to work. Here is what I tried:

    &lt;table border="0" width="400"&gt;
    &lt;tr&gt;
    [WM-RECORD cols=3 width=800]
    &lt;td&gt;[WM-Field: PRODUCT_NAME]&lt;/td&gt;
    &lt;/tr&gt;
    [/WM-Record]
    &lt;/table&gt;

    Here is what I tried:
    &lt;table border="0" width="400"&gt;
    &lt;tr&gt;
    [WM-RECORD cols=3 width=800]
    &lt;td&gt;[WM-Field: PRODUCT_NAME]&lt;/td&gt;
    &lt;/tr&gt;
    [/WM-Record]
    &lt;/table&gt;

    Did that work? Normally you should avoid including any table formatting codes when you are using WM-RECORD to create a table.

    &lt;br&gt; codes are OK. However, &lt;tr&gt;, &lt;td&gt;, &lt;dt&gt; often cause problems (at least they do for me).
