Can't I have my repeater inside a table?

I have the code below which is basically my table with a repeater that will then display each row.

This was working fine until I had to add runat="server" and an id to my table.

I had to do this as I need to export the table to excel but I am now getting:
BC30311: Value of type 'System.Web.UI.WebControls.Repeater' cannot be converted to 'System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlTableRow'.

Is there any way around this?

Thanks in advance.
<table class="gridviewheader" runat="server" id="tblCostPrice" cellpadding="0" border="1" cellspacing="0">
        <tr>
            <th>
                Invoice Number
            </th>
            <th>
                Query
            </th>
        </tr>    
        <asp:Repeater ID="rptCostPrice" runat="server" >                                       
            <ItemTemplate>
            <tr>

if you need to export the table to excel, there are two things you can do,

1. when generating the table, you can also generate a the data to export to excel by having a function that will convert the data if retrieved from database to a cvs format to export to excel
 
2. you can have a JavaScript function that will do the conversion by taking the table in the page and converting accordingly.
