Table Problem-Urgent

hi,
  I have a table such as this :

<table border="4"BGColor="#FFF8DC" width="60%" CELLPADDING="4" style="margin-left:190px;" >
   <tr>
     <td align=center>
       Organation Name
     </td>
     <td align=center>
       Project Name
     </td>

   <td align=center>
     Description
   </td>
   <td align=center>
     Start Date
    </td>
   <td align=center>
     End Date
    </td>
    <td align=center>
     Required Skills
     </td>

   </tr>
 </table>


<table border="1"BGColor="#FFFFF0" width="60%" CELLPADDING="4" style="margin-left:190px;" >

<tr>

<td align=center><%= rs.getString( "organname") %></td>
     <td align=center> <%= rs.getString("projectid" ) %></td>
     <td align=center><%= rs.getString( "description") %></td>
     <td align=center> <%= rs.getString("start" ) %></td>
     <td align=center><%= rs.getString( "end") %></td>
     <td align=center> <%= rs.getString("skillid" ) %></td>

   </tr>
</table>


My problem is when this two tables came out, the first table (headings) do not fit the second table width.If the second table has a lot rows , the length of each column is not same with each other as well as the headings.

How d o i modify this.
Thanks

DO NOT use 2 tables.  Use one.  Basically, just take out the first </table> and the second <table...> tags, and see how it looks.

Hope That Helps,

hi,

  When i try to use one table, the border and color for the headings becames similar for the data in the rows.

Actually, i need to have the headings in a different border and the data(rows ) in a different border.

I mean the color for the headings table in a bit dark with the style a bit lifted up but the color for the data in table row is a bit light with not lifted up.


thanks

Try this:

<table border="4" BGColor="#FFF8DC" width="60%" CELLPADDING="4" style="margin-left:190px;" >
   <tr>
     <td align=center width="10%">
       Organation Name
     </td>
     <td align=center width="10%">
       Project Name
     </td>

   <td align=center width="10%">
     Description
   </td>
   <td align=center width="10%">
     Start Date
    </td>
   <td align=center width="10%">
     End Date
    </td>
    <td align=center width="10%">
     Required Skills
     </td>

   </tr>
 </table>


<table border="1" BGColor="#FFFFF0" width="60%" CELLPADDING="4" style="margin-left:190px;" >

<tr>


       <td align=center width="10%"><%= rs.getString( "organname") %></td>
     <td align=center width="10%"> <%= rs.getString("projectid" ) %></td>
     <td align=center width="10%"><%= rs.getString( "description") %></td>
     <td align=center width="10%"> <%= rs.getString("start" ) %></td>
     <td align=center width="10%"><%= rs.getString( "end") %></td>
     <td align=center width="10%"> <%= rs.getString("skillid" ) %></td>

</tr>
</table>

Hope this will work.

You can play around with the colors and sizes, but CSS is the best way to deal with this, all in one table:

<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<title></title>
<style type="text/css">
<!--
table.header { margin-left:190px; width:60%; }
td.heading    { border: medium ridge #cccccc; background-color:#FFF8DC; padding:2px; }
td.data         { border:thin solid #cccccc; background-color:#FFFFF0; padding:2px; }
//-->
</style>
</head>
<body>
<table class="header" border="1">
  <tr>
    <td align=center class="heading">Organation Name</td>
    <td align=center class="heading">Project Name</td>
    <td align=center class="heading">Description</td>
    <td align=center class="heading">Start Date</td>
    <td align=center class="heading">End Date</td>
    <td align=center class="heading">Required Skills</td>
  </tr>
  <tr class="data">
    <td align=center class="data">%= rs.getString( "organname") %></td>
    <td align=center class="data"><%= rs.getString("projectid" ) %></td>
    <td align=center class="data"><%= rs.getString( "description") %></td>
    <td align=center class="data"><%= rs.getString("start" ) %></td>
    <td align=center class="data"><%= rs.getString( "end") %></td>
    <td align=center class="data"><%= rs.getString("skillid" ) %></td>
   </tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>

God bless

slatif:  That still won't work if any of the fields exceed 10%

jasbir:  Use style tags to control the border on the header row.  That will be 10x easier than trying to get 2 tables to line correctly 100% of the time with variable data.

Enjoy,

Thanks again
DexstarCommented:
What's up with that?  You used my idea of 1 table, but I didn't get any points?  How did slatif's suggestion help you?  It doesn't even work...
