displaying data in multiple columns

P: n/a
Hi,
If anyone could help me with this, I greatly appreciate it.

I would like to know how I can display data from a db in multiple
columns rather than have it displayed in 1 column per recordset. Here
is a twist...besides doing this, I would also like to have it paginate
and be able to control how many records gets displayed per page in
multiple columns.

Thank y'all in advance!!!

You are talking about reports, right? If you followed the label wizard, you
would get a multi-column report. If you want to do it from scratch, create
your report and go to File>Page Setup>Columns tab and select the column
layout.
The number of records per page depends on the size of the report sections
and margins and the number of columns - unless you force a new page before
it naturally runs out of space on the paper.

Hi Thanks for replying, but no, I want to display this data on a web
page. What it is, is I am storing links of images and their
descriptions in Access for a gallery page. I would like to display this
info when retrieved from the db into multiple columns with pagination.
Any ideas?

How does it get from the database to a web page? Have you decided on what
basic techniques you are going to employ? Active Server Pages, Data Access
Pages or perhaps a custom-routine written in vba? A lot will depend on
whether you wish to view live data or are happy with a static snapshot.
Have you made any start on this project yourself, or are you looking for
general pointers?
