Height = 100% of page question

Hello,

Is there a way to force a table to expand to 100% of the page? I am
working with some data in a colored background, but there are some
pages that do not extend to the bottom. I want to force the look of a
column down the entire page, using blank space(with colored background
if there is not enough data to fill the page.

Thanks for the help!

use this CSS:

html, body {
  height: 100%;
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
}
table {
  height: 100%;
}
