    How do I create a Scrolling table

    MonkinJack
      Hello: I haven't used Dreamweaver for awhile, but just purchased the Education version of Dreamweaver 8 and need some advice. What I would like your help with is how to create a variable length webpage pane (vertical scroll bars only) that would contain a 3 column table. The number of rows loaded into the table would change each month.

      I've been able to create and load a 3 column table in DW8, but since the page length varies according to the number of entries loaded in the table, I loose sight of column headings and other page data. What I would like to do is populate a list box that would allow users to scroll thru just a few table rows at a time thereby keeping the column headings and other data displayed on the page.

      Can you point me to some code to accomplish this or to the name of the feature(s) I need in the documentation?

      Thanks in advance for any help.

      I would like to see site visitors scroll through this pane to learn information about the products/services I will offer and provide the opportunity to link to a new page to see relevant samples for some, but not all of the entries.

          I recently discovered this interesting solution. I'ven o idea how
          cross-browser compatible it may, or may not, be. I'd love to hear
          comments from the css gurus:

            It's the same method. They are using overflow and height setting on the
            content div.

            .dataGridContent {
            overflow:auto;
            width:915px;
            _width:912px;
            height:144px;
            border-bottom: 1px solid #D9D9D9;
            }
