No table view in webdirect

In FM12 we use table view to show the contents of a database table. It shows column headers at the top, and subsequent table rows show database table rows. Something like this:

 

Computer Name
IP AddressPrinter
abc12310.11.12.135
xyz98799.98.97.9699
mno45651.50.49.4852

 

I can see 44 of these on my 25" monitor. Converting this FM database to FM15, using webdirect the display is like this using list view, the only view that shows more than one database table row at a time:

 

Computer Name abc123

IP Address 10.11.12.13

Printer 5

 

 

Computer Name xyz987

IP Address 99.98.97.96

Printer 99

 

Computer Name mno456

IP Address 51.50.49.48

Printer 52

 

On my 25" monitor I can only see 3 of these at a time. This makes visually searching for an item of interest next to impossible for a large table.

 

This page Feature comparison for FileMaker Pro and FileMaker WebDirect | FileMaker says that webdirect doesn't support 'table view'.

 

Is there a way to simulate table view in webdirect.
