Default Maintaining State in Tables

    I've got a "Stock order form" that I need to create for an ASP.Net application. What the client is looking for is basically a table that has 25 lines. There will be a 2 text boxes on each line, 1 for the user to supply part number and one for the user to supply quantity. This will allow them to place large list orders of parts. There will be 2 buttons at the bottom of the page, 1 to Update, which will take the user to a shopping cart that will list all the parts the user keyed in and let them place the order, and one that will list and validate the entries already made and add another 25 boxes so that the user can continue to add parts to the stock order.

    I've figured out how to do a dynamic table in ASP.Net, however, the issue I've run into is that it seems that the table does not maintain state between postbacks. Also, I've looked at using a data grid, but I'm a little confused on how to put in blank text boxes into the grid.

            Any help would be greatly appreciated,

The dynamic table should maintain state... You are using the Table WebControl, correct? Is the EnableViewState set to true? Also, you could put blank textboxes into a grid using the TemplateColumn type for the Column. This allows you to put whatever in the grid.
