I am getting the following error when I try to add a row to a table

cannot convert from 'System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlTableRow' to 'System.Web.UI.WebControls.TableRow'

I am using the following code snippet to add a row to the table

HtmlTableRow objRow = new HtmlTableRow();
HtmlTableCell objCell = new HtmlTableCell();
objCell.InnerHtml += ds.Tables[0].Rows[0][0].ToString();
objRow.Cells.Add(objCell);

Table1.Rows.Add(objRow)

The element Table1 is there in the aspx file.

<asp:Table id="Table1"
style="Z-INDEX: 102; LEFT: 72px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 56px"
runat="server"
Width="192px">
</asp:Table>

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Well, a HtmlTableRow is for a HtmlControls.HtmlTable, a TableRow is for a WebControls.Table (two different beasts).  

This is a HtmlTable control:
<table runat="server" id="myHtmlTable">
     ...
</table>

This is a Table WebControl:
<asp:Table id="myTableWebControl" runat="server">
    ...
</asp:Table>

Try doing something like:
TableRow objRow = new TableRow();
TableCell objCell = new TableCell();
objCell.Text += ds.Tables[0].Rows[0][0].ToString();
objRow.Cells.Add(objCell);

Table1.Rows.Add(objRow)

Hope that helps,
ZRH
