Trust me, I know lol. I, for one, hate tables. But the tool that this is based off of is already created, used by our team and our team alone, and I was given strict orders to not alter the structure of the tool just the function of it 0_o (confusing I know).
I wish I could post a snippet of the source without losing my job lol.
