    About Tables

    WOLFcfm Level 1
      Hi, I have a table and in the table i have an other table and I want the inside table to be set at the very top but instead its aligned at the center and depending on the how much info I have in the inside table it alters the location of the table. I want the inside table to be set at a specific location and stay set at that location without moving up or down depending on the amount of information being shown in that table.
      Can anyone help me? If anyone could give me any type of help I will greatly appreciate it.
      Thank you.

          Select the cell into which the inner table has been placed. Use the Property
          inspector to set Valign to TOP.

          Middle is the default vertical alignment in table cells.

          Your task will become much easier the more you know about HTML.

            I've tried that before and it didn't seem to work. This is my code:

            <table valign="top" width="770" height="600" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" bgcolor="#FFFFFF">

            and then the table is inside of here.

              you can't valign a table top.
              you CAN valign a cell.

              <table><tr><td valign="top">
              <table><tr><td>blah</td></tr></table>
              </tr></td></table>

              this will work and align the inner table at the top of your container table.

                That's where a little HTML comes in handy....
