Hello all,
I am stuck up in finding the row count of a table in a HTML page through
Watir script. I am using row_count() function to find the number of rows
in the table. Its returning me incorrect number of rows in the table. I
tried accessing the table through xpath, since I did not have attribute
associated with the table. Following is the HTML of the table [obtained
through IE developer bar] whose row count I need:

<TD id="ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_dtGridEmployees_dom"
style="VERTICAL-ALIGN: top; HEIGHT: 47px">
  <TABLE style="WIDTH: 100%" cellSpacing="0" cellPadding="0" border="0">
        <TR id="ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_dtGridEmployees_top_head">
        <TR class="Row"

The row_count() for the table inside the <TD> gives as 9, instead of 2.
I am using the following xpath :

Am I going wrong anywhere? Please let me know.

I think the problem you are having is because of nested tables
