You can specify your each row using a unique id so that you can find why id was clicked.

Are you trying to do this with javascript or php?  Where is the parameter getting passed to?  This is how you would do it in php:
<table>
<tr>
<td><a href="page.php?row=1">row1</a></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><a href="page.php?row=2">row2</a></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><a href="page.php?row=3">row3</a></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><a href="page.php?row=4">row4</a></td>
</tr>
</table>

Hi EMB01,
  Thank you for your help. I am creating table using javascript. Attached is my code. When I click on the button, I need the row Index of the table. Please let me know how can I do it.


Thank you
function getproceduresBySelectedCriteria()

{

var xmlhttp = getxmlHttpRequest();
var procDesc = document.getElementById("proc_desc").value;
var modalityId = checkSelectListSelected('modality_item');
var retired = document.getElementById("retiredCheck").checked?1:0;


var strURL = "getProcByDescOrModality.jsp?procDesc=" + procDesc+"&modalityId="+modalityId+"&retired="+retired;
xmlhttp.open("GET", strURL,true);
xmlhttp.onreadystatechange=function()
{
if (xmlhttp.readyState==4 && xmlhttp.status==200)
  {
	
	var searchTable =document.getElementById("searchResultsTable");
	var lastRow = searchTable.rows.length-1,  i;
	  for (i = lastRow; i >= 1; i--) {
		  searchTable.deleteRow(i);
	}
	var responseText = xmlhttp.responseText.split("<br>");
	for(var i=0;i<responseText.length-1;i++) {
	var procValues = responseText[i].split("<td>");
	var searchResTable = document.getElementById("searchResultsTable");
	var tblBody = document.createElement("tbody");

	  var row = document.createElement("tr");
	  row.id=procValues[0];
	  
	  var cell = document.createElement("td");
	  var procDesc = document.createTextNode(procValues[1]);
	  cell.appendChild(procDesc);
	  row.appendChild(cell);
  
	  var cell1 = document.createElement("td");
	  var modalityDesc = document.createTextNode(procValues[2]);
	  cell1.appendChild(modalityDesc);
	  row.appendChild(cell1);
  
	  var cell2 = document.createElement("td");
	  var bodyPartDesc = document.createTextNode(procValues[3]);
	  cell2.appendChild(bodyPartDesc);
	  row.appendChild(cell2);
	  tblBody.appendChild(row);
	  
	  var cell3 = document.createElement("td");

>>  I need the row Index of the table.

How do you need it?  Do you need it in URL form, like this http://www.mywebsite.com/mywebpage.php?this-is-my-row-id=1

var cell4 = document.createElement("td");
        var buttonnode= document.createElement('input');
        buttonnode.setAttribute('type','button');
        buttonnode.setAttribute('name','Add');
        buttonnode.setAttribute('value','Add');
        cell4.appendChild(buttonnode);
        row.appendChild(cell4);
            
            cell4.onclick=function(){ alert(row.rowIndex)};

I would try changing to this:
var cell4 = document.createElement("td");
        var buttonnode= document.createElement('input');
        buttonnode.setAttribute('type','button');
        buttonnode.setAttribute('name','Add');
        buttonnode.setAttribute('value',row.rowIndex);
        cell4.appendChild(buttonnode);
        row.appendChild(cell4);
            
            cell4.onclick=function(){ alert(row.rowIndex)};

This way, the button name is 'add' and the value is the index of the item which is to be added.
