Ok, here is probably a very easy question that I am completely spacing on.  I am trying to create a script that will dynamically create a table with Javascript.

function ins_row(tab) {
	newRow = tab.insertRow(-1);
}

function add_data(tab, val, spn, lnk, bld, clr) {
	if(val !== 0 && isEmpty(val)) {
		val = " ";
	}
	lstRow = tab.rows.length - 1;
	newCell = tab.rows[lstRow].insertCell(-1);
	if(!isNaN(val)) {
		newCell.align = "right";
		val = addCommas(val.toFixed(2));
	} 
	if (lnk && lnk != "") {
		val = "<a href=" + lnk +" class=" + clr +">" + val + "</a>";
	}
	if (bld) {
		val = "<b>" + val + "</b>";
	}
	if (clr && clr != "") {
		newCell.style.color = clr;
	}
	newCell.innerHTML = val;
	if (spn > 1) {
		newCell.colSpan = spn;
	}
}

Open in new window


When I call the functions, I either errors in Firefox (IE execs the code just fine)

I have a table call out:
<table width=850 id=tabl name=tabl cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 class=proc></table>

Open in new window


and the function calls:
<script>
ins_row(tabl);
add_data(tabl, 'text', 10, '', true, 'blue');
</script>

Open in new window


I have tried both leaving tabl unquoted, which gives me tabl undefined errors, and quoted, which give me tab.rows undefined.

Please help

I added the getElementById line to reference the table, and it worked.
