    Hide Columns in tables based on variables

    I have a table with 1 row and 5 columns. I want to hide each column based on specific variables in the web page. Is there a way to do that. I tried a <div> tag and the below code, but it says you cannot put a <div> tag in a table etc.

    Code:
    document.getElementById('hiddenYearLeft').style.display = "none";
    document.getElementById('hiddenYearLefta').style.display = "none";

    Exclamation

    You cannot place <td> in a <div>. Why are you not using <div> instead of a table.

    I am new to Html/CSS and not sure how I would do a DIV tag in a table style format?

    post all your code so we can see what is going on and not just bits and pieces of it.

    You haven't yet specified which columns you want to hide and what variables to use to hide those columns.

    So all I can say at this stage to answer the above question is: yes, there is

    I don't have time to look at this anymore. Hopefully someone else will come along to help you.

                hide = 1;
            } else {

    ok, no problem .

    After squeezing the additional information out of you , maybe use this as a template:

    PHP Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd"
    >
    <
    html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <
    head>
    <
    title>Table Hide Help</title>
    <
    script type="text/javascript">
    <!--

        var 
    hide 0;

        function 
    hideyear() {
            if (
    hide == 0) {
                
    document.getElementById("cellYears").style.display "none";
                
    document.getElementById("thCellYears").style.display "none";
                
    hide 1;
            } else {
            
    document.getElementById("cellYears").style.display "block";
            
    document.getElementById("thCellYears").style.display "block";
            
    hide 0;
            }
       
        }
     
    //-->
    </script>
    <
    style type="text/css">
    h2 color#0000A0;}
        
    h5{font-family:"Arial"font-size:16px;}
    h3 color#FF0000; font-size: 22px;}
    </style>
    </
    head>
    <
    body>
    <
    form name="main">
    <
    h2>

    <
    table  id="tblTimer" cellpadding="6px" bordercolor="#000000" cellspacing="10" align="center" width="500px"  style="margin: 70 0 0 0" border="5">
    <
    th id="thCellYears">Years Left</th>
    <
    th>Days Left</th>
    <
    th>Hours Left</th>
    <
    th>Minutes Left</th>
    <
    th>Seconds Left</th>
    <
    tr >
      <
    td id="cellYears" align="center" >0</td></div
            <
    td id="cellDays"  align="center" >0</td>
            <
    td id="cellHours" align="center">0</td>       
            <
    td id="cellMinutes" align="center">0</td>
            <
    td id="cellSeconds" align="center">0</td>    
    </
    tr>
    </
    table>

    </
    h2>
    <
    hr />
    <
    input type="button" id="hide" value="Hide Year Column" onclick="hideyear();" />
    </
    form>
    </
    body>
    </
    html
    Another way would be to give the <th> <td> pairs a class name and get the elements to hide/unhide by class.
