you need to add runat= server for your table ... and need to add id for each column... so on page load you will get access to id of column and you can do whatever you want

runat="server requires an id to be specified however that will treat the cell the id is applied to as an indvidual cell and just hide that.

you need to specify the runat="server" attribute to the html table and then loop through the column and row and hide each cell indvidually.

    <table runat="server" id="testTable">
        <tr>
            <th>
                Col1
            </th>
            <th>
                Col2
            </th>
        </tr>
        <tr>
            <td>
                1234
            </td>
            <td>
                5678
            </td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
            <td>
                1234
            </td>
            <td>
                5678
            </td>
        </tr>
    </table>

--------------------------------------
Server side code

        for(int i=0;i<testTable.Rows.Count;i++)
        {
            //Cells[0] is the index of the column to hide.
            testTable.Rows[i].Cells[0].Visible = false;
        }
