     Hi ashwin_d

    Well that ran at some speed, very hard to follow though !!

    I have managed to split the notification into two tables at 50% but I cannot work out what change in the code to make the two tables go side by side. There must something in the code that I can change now to make this happen.

    Please see the Form - https://form.jotform.com/61730862750961 and the "Notification with table"

    I believe I have recreated what you are looking for in my test form.  You can clone the form to your own account to have a look:

    The email notification you referenced from your copy of the form should be updated to your specifications.

    Have you cloned the form given by David? 

    I have checked the email notification on that form and I can see it is displaying as you need: 

    I would like to let you know that you can also copy this format and paste it into a different email notification, you can do it by following the steps on the image below: 

    So you will be able to apply the same to other forms. 

    Do let us know how it goes.

    Hi to both David & Kevin_G.

    Thanks for all your help.
    I think I asked the wrong question and as a result got the wrong answer, you gave the right answer though considering the way the question was worded, my fault.

    I have devised a simpler way of achieving what I wanted, I created a table with the number of Columns that I wanted and then dropped in the Field info from the Field drop down. the real object was to not have to line up a number of fields on the same line with ones above, lots of spaces and as not all characters are the same width it never really worked that well and it was time consuming.

    I really do apologize for having put you to all that trouble, and then come up with my own solution, you might not agree with it but it works for me and I am happy. The only thing now is to remove the address headings and leave the Fields... yes I know a new thread, beat you to it, and it has been asked so many times in the Forum I will get it from there.

    See this now if you want to.

    Thanks again
