Giving a td element an id

I have a snippet of code that draws a table 10 rows by 10 columns then calls it “thisTable”.

Now looking to use JS to give an id to a particular td in the table, but not having any joy so far.
Thought this would work

var  tbl = document.getElementById("thisTable");

But no joy. No doubt something simple wrong but can’t see it. TIA

Your code is setting the attribute name instead of id.

Oh FFS. Of course. Thanks.

Having changed it though I’m getting “Uncaught TypeError: tbl.getElementById is not a function”. Why would that be?

Got it! Should be document.getElementById and not the table. In case anyone else stumbles across this.

Good job figuring it out! Happy coding.
