please help me i'm not getting nay rference to sort out this issue
Thanking you in adavance
vani.

try changing:

cellText.onClick="return changestatus(this,this.parentNode,document.form_enc);"

to:

cellText.onclick=function(){return changestatus(this,this.parentNode,document.form_enc);};

That's a weird error message though... You tend to get that error (in firefox) when you try and access html elements out of context (i.e. without a <html><body> /etc around them), or when you try to access 'null' elements or null returns...

What exactly does the error say?

I confirm that theelement.onclick= function() { return myfunction() }; works for dinamically generated element both in explorer and firefox
