The code from line 23 - 26 is not functioning. Please help.

Hi, is the database throwing an exception? Does the code reach the closing table tag on line 40? Have you tried a record count to see if your row variable contains rows? try echoing the row count - otherwise the code looks fine.

first of all ... where do you use $bg ? i don't see something like
echo "<td bgcolor='".$bg."'> .. if your rows are all white (or #eeeeee) this might be the problem.

I think silviuks, is right, you not using $bg as background color (you just set its value).

I want to alternate the bg colours, row by row, any suggestion.

<?php
@ $rpp; //Records Per Page
@ $cps; //Current Page Starting row number
@ $lps; //Last Page Starting row number
@ $a; //will be used to print the starting row number that is shown in the page
@ $b; //will be used to print the ending row number that is shown in the page


$q="Select SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS * from tablename";
$rs=mysql_query($q) or die(mysql_error());
$nr = mysql_num_rows($rs); //Number of rows found with LIMIT in actiong r

$q0="Select FOUND_ROWS()";
$rs0=mysql_query($q0) or die(mysql_error());
$row0=mysql_fetch_array($rs0);
$nr0 = $row0["FOUND_ROWS()"];
$i=$nr0;
while ($line=mysql_fetch_array($rs))
{
if($i %2 == 0)
{
echo "<tr>";
echo "<td>";
echo "<table bgcolor='#fefefe' width='73%' align='center' border='0'>";
echo "<tr><td width='25%'></td></tr>";
echo "</table>";
echo "</td>";
echo "</tr>";


}
else if($i %2 == 1)
{
echo "<tr>";
echo "<td>";
echo "<table bgcolor='#e5e1e1' width='73%' border='0' align='center'>";
echo "<tr><td width='55%'></td></tr>";
echo "</table>";
echo "</td>";
echo "</tr>";

}
$i--;
}
}

hope this works
