I am trying to create tables using the ASP.Net format but im having few problems. How do I create columns in the table, how do i shade the background colour of a cell etc...

Its not as simple as using HTML normal tag tables. Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks,

You can do like this:

 <asp:TableRow TableSection="TableHeader" BackColor="Pink">
            <asp:TableCell Text="Header" ColumnSpan="3" />
  </asp:TableRow>

Check this MSDN example: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.ui.webcontrols.tablerow.tablesection.aspx

Great info!

The only thing im stuck about is how I will be changing text colour, expanding row width so that the background colour can be equal length going downwards.

And also, is it possible to put validation into text boxes that are in the table??? (i.e. you have to enter text in this field, wrong data entered etc..)

Use "ForeColor" attribute to change text's color.
        <asp:TableRow ForeColor="#FF00FF" ID="tblProData" runat="server" HorizontalAlign="Left">
                <asp:TableCell ID="ProData1" runat="server" HorizontalAlign="Left" Wrap="False">
                    <b>Project Details</b>
                </asp:TableCell>
        </asp:TableRow>

for validating your controls, use "Validation Controls" in Toolbox. For example use "RegularExpressionValidator" or "RequiredFieldValidator".
