Table border

Hi,

I have a normal table with a border.

<TABLE CELLSPACING=1 CELLPADDING=1 border=1>

What I would like is to keep the border around the edge  and the horizontal border but remove the verticle border between the TD's.

I would also like to have one every other TD to be shaded with a light grey


<tr>
            <td valign='left' halign='center'nowrap>&nbsp;<%=var2ndRun%></TD>
            <td valign='left' halign='center'nowrap>&nbsp;<%=varWeight%></TD>
            <td valign='left' halign='center'nowrap>&nbsp;<%=varTotVol%></TD>
                      <td valign='left' halign='middle'nowrap>&nbsp;<%=varTotDrops%</TD>
            <td valign='left' halign='middle'nowrap>&nbsp;<%=varLastDrop%</TD>            <td valign='left' halign='middle' nowrap> <%=varManifest%></TD>
            <td valign='left' halign='middle'nowrap><%=varBooked%>></TD>
            <td valign='left' halign='middle'nowrap><%=varBooked%>></TD>
            <td valign='left' halign='middle'nowrap><%=varBooked%>></TD>
            <td valign='left' halign='middle'nowrap><%=varBooked%>></TD>
            <td valign='left' halign='middle'nowrap><%=varBooked%>></TD>
                        
</tr>

many thanks

Remove the BORDER from your table tag.
<TABLE WIDTH="95%" BORDER=1 CELLSPACING=1 CELLPADDING=1 style="border-collapse: collapse" bordercolor="#111111">
should be:
<TABLE WIDTH="95%" CELLSPACING=1 CELLPADDING=1 style="border-collapse: collapse">
And I don't think you need the style in the table tag either:
<TABLE WIDTH="95%" CELLSPACING=1 CELLPADDING=1>

Hi Pigdogmonster,
You'll have to use style for that.

Brilliant thanks buddy! ;-)  looks great!

just 2 more thing if you dont mind,

I could do with the following colours:-

pastel blue
pastel red
pastel green

How would you suggest that I tidy up the top bar, as it looks really messy now compared to the rest of the table?

Well, that depends.....

Why do you think it looks messy, and is the top bar only for presenting relevent headers for the data or for something else?

The thing is, "looking messy" is a really subjective thing so I would need a little more "meat on the bones" to know what you find messy with it, and it's hard to say when I can't see the actual content in the rest of the table.

The only thing I can say as a general statement is to use a more soothing colour that doesn't draw too much attention and to use a thicker border underlining the top bar to separate the description from the content. If you want you could also use script to have the top bar stay in place while scrolling the rest of the table if there are lot of content.
