We have an unusual situation where all of our products run as sub-products (or child products) from parent products, and are presented using the 'table' option, which gives a hyperlink to the extended description page. How can we modify the table display to show any field from the database (not just cname and hyperlink) and how can we change the look of the table so it's arranged neatly like a html table?

We would like to display ANY field from the database in this "table" (this is for product dimensions, etc), for example cprice, pother1, ccode. We don't require cimage.

We would also like the ASP code to write out html into a table format like:

[IMAGE] Parent Product
[COLUMN NAME][COLUMN NAME][COLUMN NAME][COLUMN NAME]
[code][name][hyperlink][other1][other2][hyperlink to extended descrip]
[code][name][hyperlink][other1][other2][hyperlink to extended descrip]
[code][name][hyperlink][other1][other2][hyperlink to extended descrip]
etc. LOOP for all sub-products displayed.
With lines or table borders if we can!

thank you in advance!

Your table presentation can be done with the /stylesheets/shop.css and or shop$colors.asp.
