[FX.php List] PHP question...

I have a page that loads, and in the body of the code, there's a loop  
that occurs that tries to load in database records if any exist.  
Because of the way the site works, I have to run this loop in the body  
of the page and not at the top, so 75% of the page has already been  
loaded at this point.

What I'd *like* to do is go to the next page if no records are loaded;  
I have a variable that's easy to test, but I can't seem to get what I  

I tried saying this:

if ($counter<1){
	header("Location: review.php");

but for some reason, it doesn't actually send the user to the next  
page. I can test and confirm that the IF statement does validate and  
the code within IS run, but why doesn't it send the user to the next  
page? Is it because a lot of the HTML has already loaded?

If I use an INCLUDE() or REQUIRE(), the top part of this page will  
show on the subsequent page, which is of course not what I want.

Is there another way to redirect after the BODY of a page has already  
started loading?
