show/hide any division

I'm working on a menu system where I have a 3 column table affair.
On start, you see a menu list in column 1.
Column2 will have some general information.
Column3 is an iframe for final data input.

About every damn thing I've seen on how to do this is the pure bare
bones basics. That is, click button 1 to hide, click button 2 to show.
Not what I want.
Or, they simply toggle a division below the "switch".

What I want to do is, when a user clicks on the main menu list, what
ever item is in column2 is replaced by that choice. Then when an item
is chosen in column 2, the iframe shows the results.

Anyone got a site where this might be happening at?
It's a royal PITA searching through google.

Hi Richard,

What you ask is really vague. I am sure we can help you, but make sure
you write a coherent question.
For example, what do you mean by this:
"when a user clicks on the main menu list, whatever item is in column2
is replaced by that choice."
DO you want your column2 to hold to value (text?) of something?

If so:
<div id="column2"></div>

then replace like this:
<script type="text/javascript">
function replaceCol2(new text){
document.getEle mentById("colum n2").innerHTM L = newtext;
}
</script>

You won't learn JavaScript well from googling around.
I advise you to buy a good book, eg JavaScript, the Definitive Guide.

This is the first I have heard of data input in this "menu system."
You are going to have to explain this design a little better or post
an example page.

That doesn't really help.

You are fading.

I have a table which I want to update by dividing one field into another. The update runs with no errors, but the results come out as only a positive integer number. The datatype for the result field is float. The datatype for the other fields are int. I have tried testing by dividing 7 by 10000, which should give me 0.0007. The result in the database is 0.

In using the simple code below, how do I tell it NOT to hide a division when the link is clicked on if that division is already visible? would it be as simple as using a 2nd function and setting that to "display" rather than "none"? For instance, "home" is showing. The user clicks on "home". I don't want the division to do anything at all.
