    Is there a way to use existing tables with Webmerge?
    Hi All,

    I've been discovering the uses of the [WM-Record] and [/WM-Record] tags and although they are cool, I was wondering if there is any way to utilize existing tables with Webmerge... If there is anyway I would like to use tables like these here at http://www.humblefishmall.com/movies.html ... Is there any hope?

    Thanks for Your Help, and Time.
    Love You,
    HumbleFish

    .


    from WH help:

    [WM-Record width=width cols=cols]
    ... Html to be replicated for each record

    example:

    [/WM-Record]
    [WM-Record cols=4 width=500]
    [WM-ImagePath: ProductImage]
    [/WM-Record]


    best,

    Hi heisje,

    I know that You can build tables with the [WM-Record] and [/WM-Record] tags but what I wanted to do is use the tables that I built and have the records/info inserted to each cell using Webmerge... I would like to have all my fancy borders and stuff like that instead of just a plan-jane table like the [WM-Record] and [/WM-Record] tags make... Is there a way to do that without going back and doing it manually?

    You can use the WM-Field tag inside of a table cell, but if you need to handle multiple records within different cells that wouldn't cover what you need.

    The challenge here is that WebMerge works with varying amounts of data, while a hand-crafted table will be of a fixed number of cells. How would WM be able to reconcile the two?

    I'm open to suggestions on tag syntax if we can find others who need this.

    You might also consider using CSS to define table treatment parameters, and simple include the style reference in the WM-Table tag after any WM attributes.

    Could you provide example code for how this could be accomplished.... I am trying to add CSS to tables created by WebMerge with NO LUCK. I simply want to be able to manage cellpadding and cellspacing but all the other cool stuff CSS offers would be great too. LOL.
