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
