Ive been trying to get my first ajax jQuery code working and about to give up. I cannot figure out what it wrong, and it doesnt seem to be pussing any errors.

The code I think is quite simple, that is pull in the file test.html and stick the contents into the div with the ID 'result', however it doenst ever seem to fire.

<head>
    <title></title>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="..\jquery-1.6.4.js"></script>

    <script type="text/javascript">
        $(".trigger").click(function() {
            $.ajax({
                type: 'GET',
                url: 'test.htm',
                dataType: 'html',
                sucess: function(html, textStatus) {
                    $(".result").append(html);
                    },
                error: function (xhr, textStatus, errorThrown) {
                    $(".error").append(errorThrown ? errorThrown : xhr.status);
                    }
                })
            });
    </script>
</head>
<body>
<div id="trigger">Trigger</div>
<div id="result"></div>
<div id="error"></div>
</body>
</html>

You code try to use class instead id :
<div id="result"></div>
<div id="error"></div>

should be :
<div class="result"></div>
<div class="error"></div>

or replace << . >> by << # >> in your selectors to use ID

$("#result").append(html);
 $("#error").append(errorThrown ? errorThrown : xhr.status);

Just a guess here: you spelled "success" wrongly...?

Ok, so spelling mistakes corrected, and # replaced with ', but still doesnt work :-(

<head>
    <title></title>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="..\jquery-1.6.4.js"></script>

    <script type="text/javascript">
        $("#trigger").click(function() {
            $.ajax({
                type: 'GET',
                url: 'test.htm',
                dataType: 'html',
                success: function(html, textStatus) {
                    $("#result").append(html);
                    },
                error: function (xhr, textStatus, errorThrown) {
                    $("#error").append(errorThrown ? errorThrown : xhr.status);
                    }
                })
            });
    </script>
</head>
<body>
<div id="trigger">Trigger</div>
<div id="result"></div>
<div id="error"></div>
</body>
</html>
