thnx 4 da response. understood the code. um admired. Here let me also add one another thing, i.e. from the source fetcher file in this case results.htm suppose there two different outputs which are later going to be updated in two different divs in the caller script. um using php as server side language, lets suppose from the ajax fetcher file (results.php for php), there are two sets of output um representing as output1, output2. right? now after that one and only ajax call output1 is going 2 be updated in div1 and output2 in div2.
