div component of page does not get cleared when new data is presented

div component of page does not get cleared when new data is presented

I have an HTA program that works fine on my computer. However, on another computer I am seeing strange behavior.

I have a set of data that falls into three categories, DeliveryNote, Invoice, and Acknowledgement. Each of these three categories is tied to a button. So...
There are some filters on Plant, Series, and Start/End Date. They enter the search criteria and then, if they want to look at DeliveryNotes, they press the DeliveryNote button; if they want to look at invoices, they press the invoice button.

This all works dandy. However, on second computer that I installed this HTA, the section of the page (div='rptdata') that holds the data does not get removed (or cleared) when a second button is selected. The resulting output if the user where to select Delivery notes and then select Invoices, both appear on the screen, side by side.

<INPUT TYPE="button" NAME="Deliveries" VALUE="Deliveries" id='Deliveries' onclick=GetDelInfo() width="150" style="width: 150px">
<INPUT TYPE="button" NAME="Invoices" VALUE="Invoices" id='Invoices' onclick=GetInvInfo() width="150" style="width: 150px">

<div id='rptdata'></div>
VBScript GetDelInfo:
Sub GetDelInfo
if not isobject(oDivRptInfo) then
Set oDivRptInfo = document.createElement("rptdata")
oDivRptInfo.className = "special"
end if
if not rptdata.contains(oDivRptInfo) then
rptdata.appendChild oDivRptInfo
end if

There is a lot of code here. I have no problem putting it all in here, but my hope is to find a solution at the very top of the GetDelInfo Sub to clear the content of div "rptdata".

RE: div component of page does not get cleared when new data is presented

Same browser / version on each computer? Sounds like a CSS issue.
