Dynamic adding rows into table problem

P: n/a

I wrote a program with code behind in C# to add row into table
dynamically and the program worked very well in .Net Framework 1.1. When I
run this program in .Net Framework 2.0 beta version, the program is not
working as in version 1.1. So what is the problem? Microsoft declared that
the version 2.0 is fully backward support, but it is not. Is that the
problem with 2.0 version?

I find out the problem in version 2.0. After adding rows into table, I
saved the table in to Session variable Session["main_table"]. When the page
posts back, I retrieved the table from
main_table = (Table) Session["main_table"]. In version 1.1 it worked well,
but in version 2.0, I could save the table after dynamically adding rows,
but when I retrieved the table on post back, I got and empty table with no
rows in it. Please help, any resource link is appreciated. Below is the
Sorry for the long code.
