Table height

How do I make the height of a table span the whole document? I have a menubar aligned to the left, with a height of "100%", but it only fills up the 1st page, and if there's content that spans more than 1 page and I scroll down, from the 2nd page on that content begins directly below my left menu as opposed to to the right of it. How can I fix that?

Here is the table:

<table width="200" height="100%" border="0" align="left">
<tr><td><a href="displayAddUserForm.do">Add User</a></td></tr>
...
<tr><td height="100%">&nbsp;</td></tr>

Btw this menu is in a separate file, if that helps.

Thanks in advance.

Since you're already using tables, will something like this work?  Depending on the rest of your page, however, it may be simpler/better to move away from a table layout.  Regardless, hope that helps.
