How do I parse XML file in JAVA Script

I have an xml file created from a join.  The XML file contains duplicates from the PARENT record.

Parent Name Parent Address Child Data
Parent Name Parent Address Child Data
Parent Name Parent Address Child Data

I can pull the child data but the duplicates throw me.

I need help with the code

Can you specify what line in the above script that gives you an issue?

I do not understand what you want to do and what does not work...

Perhaps a jsFiddle.net to show where?

Useful if you had posted the actual xml

Try

var items = xmlDoc.getElementsByTagName("whateverTag")
for (var i=0,i<items.length;i<n;i++) ....

Thanks, Sorry for not posting the code.  The XML file is attached as well as the code I use to make a table out of the child table.  What I am having trouble with is the parent record.  

Thanks for your patience.  I am trying to learn by doing.

Java to make disps tag into table

var xmlEl = response.getElementsByTagName("DISP");
    var table = document.createElement("table");
    table.border = "0";
    table.width="95%";
  table.align="CENTER";
    var tbody = document.createElement("tbody");
    // Append the body to the table
    table.appendChild(tbody);
    var row = document.createElement("tr");
    // Append the row to the body
    tbody.appendChild(row);
    for (colHead = 0; colHead < xmlEl[0].childNodes.length; colHead++) {
        if (xmlEl[0].childNodes[colHead].nodeType != 1) {
            continue;
        }
        var tableHead = document.createElement("th");
        var colName = document.createTextNode(xmlEl[0].childNodes[colHead].nodeName);
        tableHead.align="left"
  tableHead.style.fontFamily = "VERDANA";
  tableHead.style.fontSize = "12px";
  tableHead.style.backgroundColor = "#E0F2F5";
  
  tableHead.appendChild(colName);
        row.appendChild(tableHead);
    }
    tbody.appendChild(row);
    // Create table row
    for (i = 0; i < xmlEl.length; i++) {
        var row = document.createElement("tr");
        // Create the row/td elements
        for (j = 0; j < xmlEl[i].childNodes.length; j++) {
            // Skip it if the type is not 1
            if (xmlEl[i].childNodes[j].nodeType != 1) {
                continue;
            }
            // Insert the actual text/data from the XML document.
            var td = document.createElement("td");
            var xmlData = document.createTextNode(xmlEl[i].childNodes[j].firstChild.nodeValue);
            if (i % 2) {
                td.style.backgroundColor = "#E0F2F5";
            }
            td.style.fontFamily = "Verdana";    
            td.style.fontSize = "12px";
            td.appendChild(xmlData);
            row.appendChild(td);
        }
