Hi Experts,

I have attached some code below. I am looking to toggle add/remove selected rows from one table to another when the checkbox in a row has been selected.

So when a user checks an input in tableA it adds the row to tableB with only the correct columns added (as you will see there are less columns in tableB)

I also need it to remove these rows from tableB when user unchecks the input in tableA

(Not removing any rows from tableA)

Many thanks for any assistance offered

<script type="text/javascript">
$(function() {
	$('#tableA :checkbox').click(function() {
		if ($(this).is(':checked')) addRow($(this).closest('tr'));
		else $('#' + $(this).closest('tr').attr('id') + '_sub').remove();
	});
	$('#tableB tbody').on('click', ':checkbox', function() {
		if ($(this).not(':checked')) $(this).closest('tr').remove();
	});
});
function addRow(obj)
{
	var row = $('<tr/>').attr('id', obj.attr('id') + '_sub');
	row.append($('<td/>'));
	row.append($('<td/>').html(obj.children().eq(1).html()));
