it would really help if i had some source code for the page, but i think if you put the following in the <a> tag for the menu;

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <a href="#" onclick="document.getElementById('mytableid').style.display= 'block'">First Table</a>
and make sure that the original table has this style in the <table> tag

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <table style="display:none;">
Hope this helps, if not here is a good example of tab menu's;

This can be solved with HTML only unless these tables are hidden by default and you want to display them when clicking the link. If it's simply scrolling to the relevant part of the page, use <a name="#movies"></a> and link to it with <a href="#movies" ...>

Hi the way Mr. Acoder suggested will exactly matches ur requirement by setting the anchor name and set that in the anchor. But you are placing the both table News and Movies tables inside a table. That tables first row contains the News and Movies href link the successive rows contains the tables, do you really need to give an anchor. because anchor within the page will be usd when there needs a navigation but here in ur page i think the user can see all the three at the same place, why do u need a navigation. This is an example

<a name="top">
<p align="right"><a href="#bottom">Go to Bottom</a></p>
<p>Naming conventions
//Here add some paragraph that enables scroll bar in ur browser
<a name="bottom">
<p align="right"><a href="#top">Go to Top</a></p>
