HI Experts,

Does anyone have a good and easy example of a HTML table where I can lock the thead and first column of each row, then I can easily specify the height and width of the table that I want and it will lock what it needs. Where, if needed, the rest of the data will scroll vertically or horizontally.

Thank you

I just want it to add a scroll.

This used to work a couple of years ago, but I cannot remember how to make the headings "stick"

HTML:
<a href="index.php?action=logout"> <input type="button" value="Logout" id="button"> </a>
        <br>
        
        <div id="tbl-container">
            <table>
		
                <thead>
                    <th class="locked">User</th>
                </thead>
                
                <tr>
                    <td class="alt1">Reservations</td>
                </tr>
                <tr>
                    <td class="alt-1">User 2</td>
                </tr>
                <tr>
                    <td class="alt1">User 3</td>
                </tr>
                <tr>
                    <td class="alt-1">User 4</td>
                </tr>
                <tr>
                    <td class="alt1">User 5</td>
                </tr>
                <tr>
                    <td class="alt-1">User 6</td>
                </tr>
                <tr>
                    <td class="alt1">User 7</td>
                </tr>
                <tr>
                    <td class="alt-1">User 8</td>
                </tr>
                <tr>
                    <td class="alt1">User 9</td>
                </tr>
                <tr>
                    <td class="alt-1">User 10</td>
                </tr>
            </table>
        </div>

According to this article https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms537634%28v=vs.85%29.aspx , that method using 'expression' was obsoleted in IE8 and was only supported by Microsoft Jscript.  That means it didn't work in the other browsers.  I have some code from a question a couple of years ago, I'll see if I can find it.  It was a pain to make work.

Here http://www.imaputz.com/cssStuff/bigFourVersion.html is one that works in Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Opera.  It doesn't work in IE8 on this machine.  It lists a bunch of old browsers that don't support it.

That example actually serves my purpose.

Can you show me how to implement?

Thank you

You need to save a copy of the source code for that page and strip out all the parts that you don't need.  I don't see any other way to do it.
