Welcome to the eleventh part of a thirteen-part series that shows you how to build database forms with HTML. In the previous part, we began to handle the layout of a tabular form. In this part, we will pick up where we left off, so you can get a better feel for the recordset and begin putting everything together.
Building the Recordset for an HTML Database Form (Page 1 of 4 )
The Second Record
Now, the table arrangement (rows, columns, rowspan and colspan) of the records should be the same. This will give your Tabular Form a consistent look. It will also facilitate the writing of the program associated with it. Here comes the second record with its associated HTML tags. Note the consistency between it and the first.
