I am trying to create a table that can be changed with javascript. Similar to how you can change a text box. Help would be greatly appreciated. God Bless

Show some source from your own attempt and people will help you figure out what needs fixing, otherwise you're basically asking people to do it for you - and noone want's to do that. Also, clarify what exactly you want to change? Simply the data within the table, or the actual table itself (number of cells, layout, etc)?

-You'll need to assign IDs where appropriate to refer to what you're changing.
-DIV (and to only a slightly lesser extent SPAN) are very useful.

Google is your friend.
