I have a page with many HTML tables. Each table has a dynamic id (tbl_1, tbl_2, etc...). I need JQuery code to call the following function multiple times to compare multiple tables placed  side-by-side. Then compare tbl_1 <- tbl_2, tbl_2 <- tbl_3, etc...

 $(function () //onload
    {
        // This is where I get stuck on iterating the functions
        // int id = 1
        // Call the functions below
        // id++

        $('#tbl_1 tr').each(function ()
        {
            var leftTableCell = $(this);

            $('#tbl_2 tr').each(function ()
            {
                if ($(this).html() === leftTableCell.html())
                {
                    $(this).css('background-color', 'yellow')
                }    
            });
        });
    });
    </script>

You can use for loop starting from 1 to maximum as table tag's count on page/container.
and update table id dynamically adding for loop variable.

like:
var totalTables = $(table).length;

for(var counter = 1; counter < totalTables - 1; counter++)
{

$('#tbl_' + counter + ' tr').each(function ()
        {
            var leftTableCell = $(this);

            $('#tbl_' + (counter + 1) + ' tr').each(function ()
            {
                if ($(this).html() === leftTableCell.html())
                {
                    $(this).css('background-color', 'yellow')
                }    
            });
        });
}

Cool!

var totalTables = $(table).length;

Q.  $(table).length ?

Q. What happens if the for-loop calls tbl_15 and it doesn't exist?
