Im trying to make a table with a table header and table body

I would like something like this

Header 1              Header 2                        Header 3

Something            Something

New Something  New something
New Sm            New Sm

Im having a very hard time figuring out how to put multiple rows for one column, like I have 4 "somethings " for the first "something" on the left?

I hope i make sense?

Any help would be great

thank you

Hi Khader,

The tutorials on html & css explain how to achieve what you need, until you reach that point try this link about tables

Hope it helps.

Thank you Wayne!

Hi Khader hope this helps,

think of it like this, a table has a row <tr> and inside that row you place table data <td> for that ROW so you have 3 headings that would come under ONE table row like this:

      <td>heading one</td>
      <td>heading two</td>
      <td>heading three</td>

then you work yourself along this order, so you want to place something into heading one column all you have to do is follow the same order you placed the headings in so:

next row:

      <td>heading one column data</td> 
      <td> heading two colmun data </td>

and so on.... closing the table row </tr> at the end.

then just wrap it all up in <table> tags :



hope that made sense haha

Thank you Hardeep!,
