Hi,

I have this code but I receive a type mismatch error. If I change this line:
document.getElementById(rowId).parentNode.removeChild(rowId);

to:

document.getElementById(rowId).parentNode.removeChild(row22);

it works. How can pass a variable to the removeChild?

Much thanks,
vkimura
<table id="t2">
<tr id="row11">
	<td>
		<select name="Append new row before this selected row" id="forAppendNewRow">
		<option id="row1">field 1</option>
		<option id="row2">field 2</option>
		<option id="row3">field 3</option>
		</select>
	</td>
	<td><input type="button" value="delete" onclick="deleteRow2(this.parentNode.parentNode.id);"/></td>

Try this:

tr = document.getElementById(rowId);
tr.parentNode.removeChild(tr);

Thanks cxr and fsze88. Both codes work. I had to offer  fsze88 more points since he had the resolution first. Thank you both, though.
