How to access dynamically created controls nested in an asp.net table

I have an asp.net  table <asp:table> </asp:table>, that is created dynamically when the user clicks a button.  the table has a row added to it with each click.  I have the data posting back correctly, and now need to total the values.  I know I can use the find control option, however, how do I access the data inside the table?  I have the code listed in a snippet below.

But it is only finding HeaderRows, and TableRows.  I know there is a TableRows.{cellcollection name of some sort), but am unaware as to how to obtain it.  
What I ultimately need:
The rows consist of :
QTY / ITEM / Amount / Extended cost(Amount * Qty)

The find control should search through the table and find the QTY amount, place it into an array.  Find the Amount textbox, place that into an array.  Once both arrays are filled I will create a function to add them appropriately...which is simple...it is just getting the data from the table row that I need help with.
For start = 1 To count

            For Each ctr In table.Rows

                If TypeOf ctr Is TextBox Then

                    If CType(ctr, TextBox).ID.ToString = "txtQuantity" & start.ToString Then

                        Select Case CType(ctr, TextBox).Text

                            Case Is = ""

                                qty = 0

                                Quantities(start - 1) = "0.00"

                            Case Is <> ""

                                Quantities(start - 1) = CType(ctr, TextBox).Text

                        End Select

                    ElseIf CType(ctr, TextBox).ID.ToString = "txtItemCost" & start.ToString Then

                        Select Case CType(ctr, TextBox).Text

                            Case Is = ""

                                ttl = 0

                                Amounts(start - 1) = "0.00"

                            Case Is <> ""

                                Amounts(start - 1) = CType(ctr, TextBox).Text

                        End Select

                    End If

                Else

                End If

            Next

        Next

Are you using FindControl from the page or from the table?  FindControl only works for calls at the lowest naming container level, unless you program a recursive search function.

Ended up solving the question myself....with the recursive function, so..since the points are unlimited, and it was in effect the right answer....Congrats Learned One!
