Formatting ASP.NET ListView

Hi Experts, I was wondering how can I make my data presented in a ASP.NET Listview control look more proffesional. I know asp.net came with different pre-build templates, but since I modified many setting both in my Layout Template, and my Item template , I cannot get to choose this option.. I want this to be shown kind of in a table cell with background and border each result, I dont speake too much well english but hopefully you can see what I am looking for, this is my list view code.,,, I need to either create a tabular style in this code or meabe something on the stylesheet.

thanks

in your ItemTemplate add the following to each <td>:

style="border: solid 1px black"

in order to put black border around each cell

YZlatCommented:
I am not sure I can completely understand what's going on with your ListView untill I run your code. Do you have sample access database for your application?

I suggest you try this:

<GroupTemplate>
            <tr ID="itemPlaceholderContainer" runat="server">
                <td ID="itemPlaceholder" runat="server" style="border: solid 1px black">

                </td>
            </tr>
        </GroupTemplate>

YZlatCommented:
Actually, based on your design, the easies thing you can do is add to each label tag the following BorderStyle=Solid BorderWidth=1px

so that the label looks like this:

  <asp:Label ID="Prof_DesigantionLabel" runat="server" BorderStyle="Solid" BorderWidth="1px"
             Text='<%# Eval("Prof Designation") %>' />

YZlatCommented:
another way is by changing your ItemTemplate to look like this:

 <ItemTemplate>
        <br />
        <table id="Table1" runat = "server" class ="middle_box_content" ></table>
            <span style="background-color: #E0FFFF;color: #333333;">
      <b>
      <table>
      <tr>
      <td style="border: solid 1px red">
     
            <asp:Label ID="Last_NameLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("Last Name") %>' />
            ,
             <asp:Label ID="First_NameLabel" runat="server"
             Text='<%# Eval("First Name") %>' />
             </td>
             </tr>
             <tr>
             <td style="border: solid 1px red">
               <asp:Label ID="Prof_DesigantionLabel" runat="server"
             Text='<%# Eval("Prof Designation") %>' /></b>
             </b>
             </td>
             </tr>
             <tr>
             <td style="border: solid 1px red">
            <asp:Label ID="SpecialtyLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("Specialty") %>' />
            <asp:Label ID="Specialty_2Label" runat="server"
            Text='<%# Eval("[Specialty2]") %>' />
            </td>
             </tr>
             <tr>
             <td style="border: solid 1px red">
            <asp:Label ID="AddressLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("Address") %>' />
            </td>
             </tr>
             <tr>
             <td style="border: solid 1px red">
            <asp:Label ID="Address2Label" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("Address2") %>' />
            </td>
             </tr>
             <tr>

            </td>
             </tr>
             <tr>
             <td style="border: solid 1px red">
            <asp:Label ID="FaxLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("Fax") %>' />
