22. Adding Dynamic Data to Your Pages > 22.4. Recordset Navigation

Recordset Navigation

Dreamweaver’s repeating region tool lets you display multiple database records on a single Web page. But a recordset with large amounts of data—like 1,000 employee records—will quickly choke a Web page. A large amount of information takes a long time to download and forces visitors to scroll for many screens to see all of it.

Fortunately, the tool also lets you limit the number of records displayed at one time. Of course, that presents its own set of problems: How do visitors see additional records, and how do you let them know where they are among all the records in the recordset?
