jquery to get values from ID tags in current TD and parent TD

I have the following table structure (see image) that is being created by some jquery code. it is a line item in the table with an X value that launches some code.

when the code runs I need to pull values from the current td id value (concatenated value seperated by bar)  and the td to the left id value and the name value (it contains a URL.

Let me know if this is not clear.

here is a sample:

The following code works:
function deletecriteria(el) {
    var myId = $(el).closest("td").attr("id");
    var $leftCell = $(el).closest("td").prev();
    var leftId = $leftCell.attr("id");
    var leftName = $leftCell.attr("name");
    $("#result").text("This ID: " + myId + " - Left Id: " + leftId + " - Left url: " + leftName );    

Open in new window

The only change to your current table is to pass the link element (this) as parameter to the function.
