Multiple-row table formatting of results - PHP Development

Hi all, This is probably a simple one if you know what you're doing, but I could use some code to work from. I'd like to write a script that will take a single key value from rows in a MySQL database and place each key value into it's own cell in a table. Each row of the table needs to be only five cells across before moving onto the next row. How, in PHP, can I create a HTML table that will automatically move to the next row after five cells are filled? Many thanks in advance. - Daniel...

    Default Multiple-row table formatting of results

    Hi all,

    This is probably a simple one if you know what you're doing, but I could
    use some code to work from.

    I'd like to write a script that will take a single key value from rows
    in a MySQL database and place each key value into it's own cell in a
    table.

    Each row of the table needs to be only five cells across before moving
    onto the next row.

    How, in PHP, can I create a HTML table that will automatically move to
    the next row after five cells are filled?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Work on the problem incrementally: leave MySQL out of the picture
    until you've solved the table problem. The data source is irrelevant.

    Maintain a variable that you increment each time you fill a cell.
    When the number hits five, it's time to end the current row and
    start a new one. Either reset the cell counter each time you start
    a new row or use the modulus (%) operator when you check it.
