    Complex Table Scrolling - Scrolling Though X Columns with 2 Remaining The Same

    Right now I have a table that is 5 columns long. The first 3 columns are related information and will grow to 4 and 5 columns in the future. The last 2 columns are general information and help link. I want 5 columns visible at all times however the first 3 will need to change.

    I want to be able to put a scroll bar in that display only 3 columns of X columns and leave the last 2 columns the same.

    I think this is a table within a table which scrolls only the inner table but I do not know how to code it correctly.

    Ideally this scroll bar would a horizontal scroll bar above the first 3 columns that would scroll by columns of a specific width and not half of a column and so on...

    Help!!!

    i think that you should use CSS divs. but if you insist on using tables (a nasty habit) then use this:

    css:
    Code:
    /* change X's to the values you want */
    #scroll {
    width: X;
    height: X;
    overflow: auto;
    }
    html:
    Code:
    <div id="scroll"><!-- content goes here! --></div>
