scrollbar position in table

is there a way to set a tables scroll position? I have a table that updates constantly every 10 seconds from a list, but when the table set its contents to that list it either jumps to to the top of the table, or I can have it select a specific row. The only problem that I have with those is that if your scrolling the table when it updates you lose your place and have to start back at where you have it set it at beginning or specific row. What I am try to really get is a table that updates automatically but doesn’t mess the scroll bar position up. The table itself does not change in size. it is always 85 rows and 5 columns. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If you need more info I will be glad to post what ever you need.
