Hide row when retrieving data from database

The page below is supposed to show the Message recordset when the visible table row is clicked.
It's working fine when I remove the table header, so I commented it out. Is there a way to modify the javascript so that I can also sort the data by clicking the table header?
Thank you for your help
<!-- #include virtual="/Connections/Authentication.asp" -->
<%
if request.querystring("sort")<>"" then
   sort=request.querystring("sort")
else
   sort="ID desc"
end if

set rs = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
rs.CursorLocation = 3  ' adUseClient

rs.Open "SELECT * FROM HR_Letters ORDER BY " & sort & " " & request.querystring("order"), conn

rs.PageSize = 10
intPageCount = rs.PageCount

Select Case Request("Action")
	case "<<"
		intpage = 1
	case "<"
		intpage = Request("intpage")-1
		if intpage < 1 then intpage = 1
	case ">"
		intpage = Request("intpage")+1
		if intpage > intPageCount then intpage = IntPageCount
	Case ">>"
		intpage = intPageCount
	case else
		intpage = 1
end select

There are several ways to solve this
1. Put your header in side a <thead> and the active cells inside a <tbody>
<table border ="1">
  <thead>
    <tr>
      <th>Name</th><th>Age</th><th>Info</th>
    </tr>
  </thead>
  <tbody>
    <tr>
      <td><p>Name</p></td><td><p>Age</p></td><td><p>Info</p></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td colspan="3"><p>First Person Details</p></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td><p>Name</p></td><td><p>Age</p></td><td><p>Info</p></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td colspan="3"><p>Second Person Details</p></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td><p>Name</p></td><td><p>Age</p></td><td><p>Info</p></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td colspan="3"><p>Third Person Details</p></td>
    </tr>    
  </tbody>
</table>

Open in new window

jQuery now can be made relative to the <tbody> tag
$(function() {
  $('tbody tr:odd p').hide();
  $('tbody tr:even').click(function() {
    if (!$(this).next().find('p').is(':visible')) {
      $('tbody tr:odd p').hide();
    }
    $(this).next().find('p').slideToggle();
  });
});

Open in new window

Option 2
Simply give the clickable rows a class
HTML
<table border ="1">
  <thead>
    <tr>
      <th>Name</th><th>Age</th><th>Info</th>
    </tr>
  </thead>
  <tbody>
    <tr class="headerow">
      <td><p>Name</p></td><td><p>Age</p></td><td><p>Info</p></td>
    </tr>
    <tr class="datarow">
      <td colspan="3"><p>First Person Details</p></td>
    </tr>
    <tr class="headerow">
      <td><p>Name</p></td><td><p>Age</p></td><td><p>Info</p></td>
    </tr>
    <tr class="datarow">
      <td colspan="3"><p>Second Person Details</p></td>
    </tr>
    <tr class="headerow">
      <td><p>Name</p></td><td><p>Age</p></td><td><p>Info</p></td>
    </tr>
    <tr class="datarow">
      <td colspan="3"><p>Third Person Details</p></td>
    </tr>    
  </tbody>
</table>

Open in new window

jQuery
$(function() {
  $('.datarow p').hide();
  $('.headerow').click(function() {
    if (!$(this).next().find('p').is(':visible')) {
      $('.datarow p').hide();
    }
    $(this).next().find('p').slideToggle();
  });
});

I did some research and I found another way it can be done. This way I'm able to display the table header and sort the data:
<html>
<head>
	<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.8.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
	<script type="text/javascript">
		$(document).ready(function($) {
			$('#accordion').find('.accordion-toggle').click(function(){
	
				//Expand or collapse this panel
				$(this).next().slideToggle('fast');
	
				//Hide the other panels
				$(".accordion-content").not($(this).next()).slideUp('fast');
	
			});
		});
	</script>
	<style>
		.accordion-toggle {cursor: pointer; margin: 0;}
		.accordion-content {display: none;}
	</style>
</head>
<body>
<div id="accordion">
<table border="1">
<tr class="accordion-toggle"><td>Accordion 1</td></tr>
<tr class="accordion-content"><td>Cras malesuada ultrices augue molestie risus.</td></tr>
<tr class="accordion-toggle"><td>Accordion 1</td></tr>
<tr class="accordion-content"><td>Cras malesuada ultrices augue molestie risus.</td></tr>
<tr class="accordion-toggle"><td>Accordion 1</td></tr>
<tr class="accordion-content"><td>Cras malesuada ultrices augue molestie risus.</td></tr>


</div>

</body>
</html>

The code you posted is essentially the same as the second method I posted above - you use classes to target the row. However, by removing the <p> from the equation you loose the slide effect because <tr> elements don't respond to toggle. So it will work in that they rows will show and hide but you won't get the slide effect.
