Well a quick way to get this to work would be to create duplicate recordsets using the same settings. In fact with Recordsets, you can copy and paste them in the Server Behaviors panel. Select your recordset, right click, select copy, then right click and select Paste. You'll now have a new recordset. You can edit it to give it a name that you'll recognize better, if you feel like it. You can then use the "new" recordset as the one to repeat over for the Repeat Region you need to have on your page.

Or, you can "reset" the recordset back to the first result item, and then wrap the area you want to repeat with a copy of the Dreamweaver repeating code.

To reset your recordset back to the start of the recordset use code similar to the following (replace Recordset1 with the name of your recordset). This code will need to be inserted immediately above any repeat region you want to add, so if you have 5 repeat regions, then you'll have this on the page 4 times, no need to have it prior to the first one on the page, as the recordset is already at the beginning:

$rows = mysql_num_rows($Recordset1);
if($rows > 0) {
mysql_data_seek($Recordset1, 0);
$row_Recordset1 = mysql_fetch_assoc($Recordset1);

Then any region you want to repeat, add this before the start of the region:
<?php do { ?>

and this after (again replace Recordset1 with the name of your recordset):
<?php } while ($row_Recordset1 = mysql_fetch_assoc($Recordset1)); ?>
