Delete cell(s) at the beginning of the first table row. The table rows collection (.rows[0]) returns a collection of all <tr> elements in the table with id "myTable". The number [0] specifies the element to retrieve, in this example, the first table row. Then we use deleteCell() to delete cells from index position 0:

var firstRow = document.getElementById("myTable").rows[0];
