<tr>                              
                  <td><input type=button name="btnClose" Value="View Agent" onClick="displayAgent('<%=nameString%>')" ID="Button2"></td>
                  <td><input type=button Value="+" onClick="displayDrill('<%=rst("Bcode")%>')" ID="Button1"></td>
                  <td><%=rst("Bcode")%></td>
                  <td><%=nameString%></td>
                  <td><%=formatdate(rst("departuredate"))%></td>
                  <td><%=formatdate(rst("bdate"))%></td>
                  <td><%= FormatNumber(rst("tot"),2)%></td>
            </tr>

            <Span id=spn<%=rst("Bcode")%>>
            
             </Span>

Are you using javascript to do this? If so, not sure why you're posting this in ASP section. Did you put your function inside javascript tags?

If you just wanted to clear it out you could use something like:

    Function displayDrill( Bcode )

        curText = document.all("spn" & Bcode).InnerHtml
        If curText <> "" Then
            document.all("spn" & Bcode).InnerHtml = ""
        Else
            document.all("spn" & Bcode).InnerHtml = "<td>HELLOOOO</td>"
        End If

    End Function

function displayDrill(Bcode)
      curText = document.all("spn" & Bcode).InnerHtml
      If curText <> "" Then
            document.all("spn" &amp; Bcode).InnerHtml = ""
      Else
            document.all("spn" &amp; Bcode).InnerHtml = <td>HELLOOOO</td>"
      End If            
      'document.all("spn" & Bcode).innerhtml =  "<table><tr><TD>HELLOOOO</TD>"
end function
