For what are you using the corn sugar? Is this your priming sugar? If so, yes you can use table sugar, but the amounts would be different.

Yes. They are great substitutes for each other. Table sugar packs a bit more of a punch, so you can use less.

Using pound and a half corn sugar to the boil. Forgot the corn sugar. I was wondering if the regular table sugar would be an acceptable substitute.

Try Turbinado instead, that's what I use in my DIPA. It's pretty good too!

Yup, I only use table sugar in my beers, including high-sugar beers like belgian tripels. It's cheaper and more fermentable than corn sugar.
