Align a <div> to a table row

I use ColdFusion as my pre-processor and I have a CF loop that prints out table rows of datasets.  I have a delete button in each row that I want to "popup" a div (to confirm the delete) over that row that will allow me to delete the record.  Currently, when I click on a delete button, the all the divs shows over the first row no matter which row I want to delete.  Therefore, it's a positioning problem.

Loop code:
<cfloop query="resident_appts">
        	<table class="<cfoutput>#iif((resident_appts.currentRow MOD 2 EQ 0), DE('curApptRowEven'), DE('curApptRowOdd'))#</cfoutput>" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%">
  				<tbody>
    				<tr>
      					<td class="saTime"><cfoutput>#TimeFormat(resident_appts.datetime_start,"short")# - #TimeFormat(resident_appts.datetime_end,"short")#</cfoutput></td>
      					<td align="right">
                        
                        	<!--- Appointment Edit/Delete Buttons --->
                            <table border="0" cellspacing="5" cellpadding="0">
  							  <tbody>
    							<tr>
      							  <td id="appEdit" class="appEditDel">Edit</td>
      							  <td id="appDel<cfoutput>#resident_appts.currentrow#</cfoutput>" class="appEditDel" onClick="<!--- delRec(<cfoutput>#resident_appts.id#</cfoutput>); --->">Delete</td>
    							</tr>
  							  </tbody>
							</table>
                            <!--- END Appointment Edit/Delete Buttons --->
                            
                            	  <script>
									$( "#appDel<cfoutput>#resident_appts.currentrow#</cfoutput>" ).click(function() {
  						   			$( "#confirmAppDelete<cfoutput>#resident_appts.currentrow#</cfoutput>" ).fadeToggle( "slow", function() {
  										});
									});
								  </script>
                            
                            <!--- Confirm Appointment Delete --->
                            <div id="confirmAppDelete<cfoutput>#resident_appts.currentrow#</cfoutput>" class="confirmAppDelete">Are you sure you want to delete this appointment?</div>
                            <!--- Confirm Appointment Delete --->
                            
						</td>
    				</tr>
    				<tr>
                    	<td class="saName"><cfoutput>#resident_appts.name#</cfoutput></td>
                        <td class="saLoc"><cfoutput>#resident_appts.location#</cfoutput></td>
                    </tr>                    
                    <tr>
      					<td colspan="2" class="saDesc"><cfoutput>#resident_appts.description#</cfoutput></td>
   					</tr>
  				</tbody>
			</table>
        </cfloop>

Absolute position is relative to the closest ancestor element with positioning. Even it is it position: relative; without any offsets, the ancestor becomes the zero point for the next generation of descendor elements with positioning. Try giving your <tr> elements a relative position and see if that works.
tr { position: relative; }

Setting the <tr> position:relative did not work.

Setting the <table> class to position:relative worked.

Thank you

You're welcome. I wasn't sure if the <tr> would work. Glad you got it figured out.
