Repeating table not working

Hello
I have been trying to create a repeating table but somehow it never does what I expect.
I get a line - Cotton T-Shirt9.99 Jacket Blue50 Jacket Navy30
Instead of 3 lines

Cotton T-Shirt9.99
Jacket Blue50
Jacket Navy30
Also no space Jacket Navy 30
I will post the page
Thank you
John

You will want to move the <tr> tag so it is inside of the repeated region. You may have to do that from code view. If you attached the page I could be more specific.

Thanks Ray
I moved the opening <tr> tag and that has caused the lines to repeat correctly ie in a list.
Cotton T-Shirt9.99
Jacket Blue50
Jacket Navy30
There should be a space between the name and the price. Can you please advise on this point?
I will attach the code, I hope the zip format is OK for you.
Thank you
John

On line 62 you have:

php:
<?php echo $row_Recordset1['ProductName']; ?><?php echo $row_Recordset1['ProductPrice']; ?>


Just add a space where you want one like:

php:
<?php echo $row_Recordset1['ProductName']; ?> <?php echo $row_Recordset1['ProductPrice']; ?>



Even better add a dollar sign and decimals like:

php:
<?php echo $row_Recordset1['ProductName']; ?> $<?php echo number_format($row_Recordset1['ProductPrice'],2); ?>

Many thanks Ray for that clarification. Easy when you know how!

To construct the table I used the Web Assist/Database/RepeatingTable method. So it seems that this is not working quite as it should on my machine, so I will make some notes for the future.
I was expecting each item eg Product - Price etc to appear in a separate column so that the columns would line up neatly.
Can that be achieved anyway?
Regards

It appears there is an issue with the repeated table in the latest version of DW. It is not including the <tr> tag in the repeated region. I'll log the bug and have to look into getting it fixed in the next update.
