    trouble understanding repeating regions

      Using Dreamweaver 8 on IIS v6.0

      Dreamweaver amateur, here sorry. Im trying to create a repeating region to dynamically display name and email address. I have an excel spreadsheet as the data source with one column B containing names and column C containing email addresses. I have the sheet set up and the data sets are defined in the sheet. I can get the data to display on teh page as follows:

      Name Name Name Name Name... Address Address Address Address Address

      But what i want is :

      Name Address
      Name Address
      Name Address
      Name Address
      Name Address
      etc...

      I have tried using the Dynamic Table Application object which only results in errors. If I create a table and give it 2 columns and then define each of the cells as a repeating region the data displays horizontally. What am I missing? Thanks!

          Apply the repeat region to the ROW not the two columns. In other words, go
          into code view, and select the ROW, e.g.,

          <tr>
          <td>Name here</td>
          <td>Address here</td>
          </tr>
