Hidden iframe/ajax to refresh portion of a page linked to the database

I am using a hidden iframe to upload file in php which seems to be working. However, my problem now is to refresh a portion of the page without refreshing the entire page. Now, for this portion I have included a file which pulls records from the database.  I was thinking of using a div and refreshing that div(with the hidden iframe to do the server stuffs)  but not sure as to how to do this. Can anyone help me out. Its urgent and your help will be highly appreciated.

well
if the layer to be updated is an include file,

foa, at the father page isolate your content to be updated via a div like you said
<div id=tobeupdated>
<?include("hereisthefileofdb.php;?>
</div>


after the iframe finishes the job,
let it include the file like this; ( in the iframe, finished and submitted page )

<div id=upps>
<?include("hereisthefileofdb.php;?>
</div>
<script>
document.body.onload=function(){
   window.parent.document.getElementById('tobeupdated').innerHTML = document.getElementById('upps').innerHTML;
}
</script>




try this,
if there s some syntax typo, sorry :)
