How do I show the row number in a repeating table?

How do I show the row number in a repeating table?

I've seen this http://www.webassist.com/forums/posts.php?id=5919 but I don't get it. I'd like to have this:

1 | content from the first row
2 | content from the second row
3 | content from the third row
etc.

I tried this <?php $rowcount = 0; ?> outside the loop and <?php echo ++$rowcount; ?> in a cell within the repeating table. But it renumbers each page. If I have 10 pages of records with 10 records per page, it numbers 1 through 10 on each page instead of 1-10, 11-20, 21-30 etc.

Thanks

when you use the navigation to change the page, there should be a URL Variable to tell what page to load, for example:
on my items_results page, the URL variable looks like this:

items_results.php?pageNum_WADAitems=1&totalRows_WADAitems=14

pageNum_WADAitems=1 tells it to load page one.

Use this in an if statement when setting the row count:
<?php
$rowcount = 0;
if(isset($_GET['pageNum_WADAitems'])) $rowcount = intval($_GET['pageNum_WADAitems']) * 10;
?>

Perfecto! Thanks.

For others, above the do loop put the following where 'items' is the name of your table. It's what shows up in the URL on other than the first page like 'pageNum_WADAbooks' or 'pageNum_WADAinventory'.

<?php
$rowcount = 0;
if(isset($_GET['pageNum_WADAitems'])) $rowcount = intval($_GET['pageNum_WADAitems']) * 10;
?>

In an empty column in the repeating table put <?php echo ++$rowcount; ?>

Jason, is the above correct? I wouldn't want to steer anyone in the wrong direction.
