I am having organization set up with my table. I am trying to code for a report to have the Purchase Date and Shipped Status information added/display onto my report but I continue getting errors such as the value is not showing up and my information look out of place.

I don't know where to put the purchase date ($date) and shipped status ($status) area without making the report table go wacky...all out of place. The report open up in Excel incase anyone was wondering.
I honestly tried and move it around through out the coding still nothing. I even added some <td> tags and nothing still a mess. Could someone please help me out

echo "<table width=\"100%\" cellpadding=\"1\" border=\"1\">\n";
   echo "<tr><td colspan=\"6\"><b>Products sold between " . $startdate . " and " . $enddate . "</b></td></tr>\n";
   echo "<tr><td><b>Purchase Date</b></td><td><b>Shipped Status</b></td><td><b>Product</b></td><td><b>Quantity Sold</b></td><td><b>Unit price</b></td><td><b>Total</b></td></tr>\n";
   $count = 3;
   while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result, MYSQL_ASSOC))
   {
      $product = $row['description'];
      $quantity = $row['total'];
      $price = $row['price'];
      $total = $quantity * $price;
	  $date = $row['date'];
	  $status = $row['status'];
      echo "<tr><td>$product</td><td>$quantity</td>\n";
      printf("<td>%.2f</td><td>=B%s * C%s</tr>\n", $price, $count, $count);
      $count++;
   }
   $count--;
   echo "<tr><td><b>Total</b></td><td>=SUM(B3:B" . $count . ")</td><td>&nbsp;</td>\n";
   echo "<td>=SUM(D3:D" . $count . ")</td></tr>\n";
   echo "</table>\n";

The first problem I see is you are using 6 columns to start the table.

Then in your loop you are using 3.5 columns when there should be 6.

same with your totals line. should be 6 columns and you are using 4.

I updated the column to make sure all the column are the same and still the result is wacky.
This is the code I know have

echo "<table width=\"100%\" cellpadding=\"1\" border=\"1\">\n";
   echo "<tr><td colspan=\"6\"><b>Products sold between " . $startdate . " and " . $enddate . "</b></td></tr>\n";
   echo "<tr><td><b>Purchase Date</b></td><td><b>Shipped Status</b></td><<td><b>Product</b></td><td><b>Quantity Sold</b></td><td><b>Unit price</b></td><td><b>Total</b></td></tr>\n";
   $count = 3;
   while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result, MYSQL_ASSOC))
   {
      $product = $row['description'];
      $quantity = $row['total'];
      $price = $row['price'];
	  $date = $row['date'];
	  $status = $row['status'];
      $total = $quantity * $price;
      echo "<tr><td>$date</td><td>$status</td><td>$product</td><td>$quantity</td>\n";
      printf("<td>%.2f</td><td>=B%s * C%s</td></tr>\n", $price, $count, $count);
      $count++;
   }
   $count--;
   echo "<tr><td></td><td></td><td><b>Total</b></td><td>=SUM(B3:B" . $count . ")</td><td>&nbsp;</td>\n";
   echo "<td>=SUM(D3:D" . $count . ")</td></tr>\n";
   echo "</table>\n";

result...............
Products sold between 01/23/2007 and 08/23/2010
Purchase Date Shipped Status Product Quantity Sold Unit price Total
7/1/2009 17:48 shipped Highlight Color Clip in Extension 100 11.99 #VALUE!
7/1/2009 17:48 shipped starbright extension 1 3.33 #VALUE!
Total 0 100
The value is not showing it is saying value instead of the number.
And the total is wrong, because it is in the wrong place. I copy and paste this info from excel so I hope it shows like how I see it.

See there is something wrong that I am doing

it's showing #Value! because excel is telling that what you filled in that cell is a formula that it doesnt understand.

From what I see you are trying to do, I think you want

printf("<td>%.2f</td><td>$total</td></tr>\n", $price );

follow that for your totals too. Not sure why you are using count there. Unless I'm misunderstanding what you are trying to put in that column, that should work.
