Dynamically copy and create html table

Hi

I have a small table within a CollapsiblePanelExtender.  It has two dropdowns and a few textboxes.

When a user clicks a button, I would like to copy this table and controls and then place the copy underneath the current table.

How would I do this?

Thanks

Please explain in detail. What do you mean by "copy"?

Beside copying the content the question is how would you use the new section as if you want to post the data the controls will have to have different id's for the dropdowns and comboboxes.

So I think the solution is not to 'copy' the content but to manually construct it using html code and new controls.
Here's an example on how to add controls to a panel:

Since I have given up on the gridview and users will only add 1-4 records, I created a table with the fields I need and thought I would copy the format etc from the existing table and append a number ie. id = txtDescribe & "1"
I'm sure I can figure out how to recreate the table, but how do I place it below the other table?
The table is in a panel, so there should be a way to add the table below the one being copied.
Thanks

You should create an user control with your table and fields and dynamically add it to the page.
