I have a page that retrieves game matches and scores I coded a table to repeat itself in a grey Table. I tried making all settings to height 100% but I'm stuck I want a scrollbar that scrolls up and down. Originally the games autoscrolled but I changed it so maybe there is something left that is preventing the javascript from working.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>NHL GAME LOG</title>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1/jquery.min.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {
	$.ajax({
		url: 'NHL.xml',
		dataType: "xml"
	}).done(function(data) {
		$('game', data).each(function(i, game) {
			newGame = $('#gameTemplate').clone().removeAttr('id');
			
			$('.awayLogo', newGame).html( $('<img>').attr('src', 'http://images.sportsnetwork.com/nhl/attherink/logos/' + $('vteamid', game).text() + '.png') );
			$('.awayTeam', newGame).html( $('vteam', game).text() );
			$('.awayScore', newGame).html( $('vscore', game).text() );

			$('.homeLogo', newGame).html( $('<img>').attr('src', 'http://images.sportsnetwork.com/nhl/attherink/logos/' + $('hteamid', game).text() + '.png') );
			$('.homeTeam', newGame).html( $('hteam', game).text() );
			$('.homeScore', newGame).html( $('hscore', game).text() );

			$('.gameStatus', newGame).html( $('status', game).text() );
var newLink = $('<a>')
    .attr('href', 'http://dev.sportsnetwork.com/aspdata/nhl2/NHLGamecast.aspx?gameID=' + $('game_id', game).text() )
    .text( $('status', game).text() );



////  .attr('href', '#')
  //  .text( $('status', game).text() )
  //  .data('gameID', $('game_id', game).text() )
  //  .click( function(e) {
  //     e.preventDefault();
   //   window.location =
    //                    "DailyNHL.html#" + $('game_id', game).text();
  //  });

$('.gameStatus', newGame).html( newLink );
			$('#games ul').append( $('<li>').append(newGame) );
		});
			
		
		

	});
});
</script>
<style type="text/css" media="screen">

<div class="topdrop" height="100%" id="games">

height="100%" is not valid html. Height only accepts a number like height="100", not percent or px or anything else. Besides, you should always use css instead of the outdated height=, width=, etc.

Do this:

<div class="topdrop" style="height:100%;overflow:scroll" id="games">
