ASP .net format Listvew to a table format

Hi Everyone,

I want to format a ListView control to display information in a (tabular) table format.

Currently, I am using the ListView with the Bulleted format. There are two columns:

The first column shows the fields from a database table listed vertically. The second column shows the data for those columns for a single recorrd.  (So there are only two columns).

It uses an a <ul></ul> tag.

I want the data to appear in table format with solid borders around the two columns

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

How about something like this:

asp:ListView ID="ListView1" runat="server" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1">


 <table ID="itemPlaceholderContainer" >   

<tr runat="server" ID="itemPlaceholder">







EmpID:  <asp:Label ID="firstcolumnLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("firstcolumn") %>' />

<br />

EmpName: <asp:Label ID="secondColumnLabel" runat="server" 

                        Text='<%# Eval("secondColumn") %>' />
