    creating a new table next to an existing one

    bjnick86
      I have attached the table I created...(I'm a beginner....forgive me for being simplistic in design). I want to create a separate table for "Friday" right next to the existing table. How do i get the new table to align to the right of the existing table? I tried just extending the table- that is, adding rows/columns so that I could then arrange it to look like a separate table, but couldn't get it to work....lost in "format hell."

      I know it must be easy....

      Also....why can't i seem to add or delete cells from this table?! There is some formatting error I'm making that I can't understand.

      thanks!

            One way to do it, very simply, would be to create a table with 2 columns and then put one table in each column,that way they are seperate and will sit side by side.

            Hope this helps

              Either give each table a css class and float one alongside the other,
              or create a two cell one line table and embed the other two tables in
              it - one in each cell.

                Thanks for the feedback...

                I created a two-cell table and put the other tables in....on the left column it's fine, but on the right, I cannot get the embedded table to align to the top; it freezes halfway down the column....I've tried several times. Also, as I mentioned, I cannot delete cells or columns from the table...it's frustrating....there must be some simple thing I'm doing wrong.

                I wish I could attach files to these posts....on other forums I use people attach files all the time so other users can see what's going on....is there anyone to whom I could attach this file so they could tell me what's wrong with it? it would be much appreciated...

                Thanks...

                  In a table - the contents default to align left and align middle.
                  Perhaps you want <td valign="top"> in the containing table ?


                  To delete a column - in design mode

                  post ion the cursor over the top edge of the column and a down arrow
                  appears

                  right click and select "cut"

                  likewise to delete a row - position the cursor on the left edge right
                  click and cut

                  No you can't attach files here - but you can copy the code and past it
                  into the message.

                  Don't forget the help files - they are very errm "helpful"

                    Thanks for your response.

                    When I try this, the entire table is "cut." I've tried it several ways to no avail. Also, when I select cells to delete, they will not delete. I will select a row of unused cells, and can't delete them. I don't get it.

                      To select a whole table, click in it in Design view. Then look at the Tag
                      Selector bar. Click on the right-most <table>. You've just selected an
                      entire table. Cut it from the page with Ctrl-X. Then click in the outer
                      table's left cell, and paste the cut table in with Ctrl-V.

                      Like that.

                      • 8. creating a new table next to an existing one
                        bjnick86 Level 1


                        This is what I understand to be the process:

                        1) I have created a table ("daily schedule" for Mon-thurs). I cut it so it's on the clipboard.

                        2) I create a new table (1 row 2 columns), then paste the original table in the left cell.

                        3) I create another new table (16 rows, 1 column) which is for "Friday" schedule, and insert that into the right cell.

                        Is this correct?

                        I think I did as you said (it's what I had tried before: I created a simple two-column table, and then inserted the other table (a "daily schedule" for Mon-thurs) in the left cell. it seems very logical and simple.In the right, I tried to insert a new table (one column, 16 rows) into the right cell, but the new table immediately goes below the existing table, and not in the cell to the right. I can't get the new table to go into the right column.

                        I also tried clicking in the right cell of the outer table, but cannot get DW to insert rows; they will be added above, below, but will not be inserted into the cell of the outer table.

                        And again, the unused cells at the bottom of the existing table ("daily schedule" for Mon-Thurs) I simply cannot delete....I've tried selecting them in every possible way but they will not delete.

                        I guess I'm way out of my league here....there is something about basic table formatting that I don't get. I've used tables for years in word processing (word, word perfect) and never had problems, but the structure here I don't understand. Can you look at this code and see what I'm doing wrong?

                          The only similarity between word processors and HTML authoring is shown in
                          the list below -

                          1.

                          In other words, there is none. So, the work you mention above would have no
                          relevance to this application.

                          If you can cut a table from the page, and insert it into an outer table
                          cell, then you have all the skills you need to complete the job. If that
                          process is failing for you, it can only mean that your cursor was not in the
                          second cell when you tried to paste the table. I'm guessing that's in fact
                          exactly what happened because when you paste the first table, the outer
                          table will then adjust its component cell widths so that the second cell is
                          only a tiny slivver. When you thought you were clicking in it, you were
                          actually clicking to the right of the table.

                          So - try again, only this time, use code view to cut and paste. That's a
                          great way to guarantee that things go where you want them.
