I am Getting an Error Unable to set value of the property 'className': Error?

I am setting a class to a different class.

I am doing the coding as follows:
document.getElementById("prevowners-section").className = "subnav-target";

When the new class name is entered, an error occurs:
Unable to set value of the property 'className':  object is null or undefined

Thanks,

Dan

@Leakim: Identical result

http://jsfiddle.net/mplungjan/83v9mqef/
document.getElementById("prevowners-section1").setAttribute("class", "subnav-target");
document.getElementById("prevowners-section2").className="subnav-target";

Open in new window


More likely need is to use
window.onload=function() {
  document.getElementById("prevowners-section").className="subnav-target";
}

Open in new window

Hi, not to be picky, but what was Leakim's contribution to solving your issue?

If the issue was that the prevowners-section was not rendered at the time you executed your script, then the window.onload was the solution.

Thanks
