Yes. My table is repeating the headers information every time it shows a row result.
for exemplo: checkdate, checkamount...
             2012-10-01,  123.00 ....
             checkdate, checkamount...
             2012-10-02,  124.00 ....
 It must be one header only like:
             checkdate, checkamount...
             2012-10-01,  123.00 ....
             2012-10-02,  124.00 ....
 Can you please help me fix the code?
 Thanks

The table opening tags, the header cells and the table closing tags need to be moved outside the while loop.

How can i do that? can you please give me an exemple?
Thanks
