Help with Line-break - ASP Database

Does one need to code a Function to insert line-breaks to display data (txt) that consists of more than 1000 characters? The problem I'm having right now is, that in the displaying-tabel (HTML) displays one long line of text which I have to scroll right (horizontally) even though I assigned the table-width to 600 pix (not in percent). What's the easiest way to do this? Please help! Big Thanks!!! Sam...

    This is basically an html/css question which would be better handled in an
    html group. Just because you might be using asp to write the data into the
    html doesn't make it any less an html question (note that you did not
    mention asp once in the posing of your question).

    I'd like to help, but I'm not enough of an html expert to do so. Try a more
    appropriate group.

    I apologize for not mentioning ASP. Just a newbie...

    I shall check out CSS a bit deeper to see whether I could format the text
    display in a table that way without having to code it in either JavaScript
    or VBScript. With embedded ASP in mind.

    Thank you for answering

    No need to apologize for that. I brought that up to illustrate that you
    weren't having an asp problem, that's all.

    In fact, you have no reason to apologize at all. I was not upset that you
    had posted the problem here. I was simply trying to advise you of a better
    way to get help for this problem.
