In vb.net/asp.net 2.0 I build this table from a gridview named gv:
(Code is simplified from actual)
Dim table1 As Table
Dim table2 As Table
 For Each grdItem As GridViewRow In gv.Rows
                        Dim row1 As New TableRow()
                        Dim cell1 As TableCell
                        cell1 = tbBPAddCell(row1, grdItem.Cells(0).Text, "center", "Style1", 4)
                        cell1 = tbBPAddCell(row1, grdItem.Cells(1).Text, "center", "Style1", 7, 2)
                        table1.Rows.Add(row1)
                        Me.Panel1.Controls.Add(table1)

                        Dim row2 As New TableRow()
                        Dim cell2 As TableCell
                        cell2= tbBPAddCell(row2, grdItem.Cells(2).Text, "center", "Style1", 4)
                        cell2= tbBPAddCell(row2, grdItem.Cells(3).Text, "center", "Style1", 7, 2)
                        table2.Rows.Add(row2)
                        Me.Panel1.Controls.Add(table1)
 Next

The problem lies in when the table built the first table is displayed as many times as there are rows and then the second table is displayed as many times as there are rows. Like this:
table1
table1
table2
table2

But! My goal is to display one table after another like this:
table1
table2
table1
table2

If the code worked like I thought it did I should get my desired results. I can't get it to work correctly with two separate tables. How can I loop thru this gridview to have my tables display one after another??? Please provide an example.
If it helps, here's the function called in the code snippit:
 

Public Function tbBPAddCell(ByVal row As TableRow, ByVal Contents As String, ByVal Align As String, ByVal CellType As String, ByVal ColSpan As Integer, Optional ByVal RSpan As Integer = 1, Optional ByVal Width As Integer = 0) As TableCell

        tbBPAddCell = New TableCell()

        tbBPAddCell.Font.Size = 9

        tbBPAddCell.Wrap = False

        tbBPAddCell.BorderColor = Drawing.Color.Black

        

        If CellType = "Style1" Then

            tbBPAddCell.Font.Size = 12

            tbBPAddCell.Wrap = True

            tbBPAddCell.ForeColor = Drawing.Color.Black

            tbBPAddCell.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.Solid

            tbBPAddCell.BorderColor = Drawing.Color.Black

            tbBPAddCell.BorderWidth = Unit.Pixel(1)

        End If
 

        tbBPAddCell.ColumnSpan = ColSpan

        tbBPAddCell.RowSpan = RSpan

        If Align = "left" Then

            tbBPAddCell.HorizontalAlign = HorizontalAlign.Left

        ElseIf Align = "center" Then

            tbBPAddCell.HorizontalAlign = HorizontalAlign.Center

        Else

            tbBPAddCell.HorizontalAlign = HorizontalAlign.Right

        End If

        tbBPAddCell.Text = Contents

        row.Cells.Add(tbBPAddCell)

    End Function

I think a single table would suffice for you.

Instead of adding to two different tables table1 and table2. just keep on adding to table1

Thanks for the feedback informaniac. That worked in testing but the two "real" tables are totally different and extremely long and being able to do two separate tables would save me a ton of work. That's the goal of this post.

Nevermind, it was obvious. If you add to the same table (by name) it's going to append to the table of the same name the next time it loops. I had to reinstanciate the table name each time by putting the table declaration within the for each loop.
