Dynamically assign ID to hyperlink

I run jQuery and return a set of values. I want to use one of these values as the ID of a hyperlink created after the jQuery call runs.

my returned value is wResults.iNumber

my hyperlink
'<A href="#" id=wResults.iNumber onclick="accessEditForm(">Edit</A>'

How can I get the hyperlink to read the value of the wResults.recseq variable?

Set the attribute?

I am not sure what youa re doing, maybe some more code would shed more light on your question.

I have no idea what you are asking. What's wResults.recseq and what does it mean to "read" it?

And, you are using jQuery, yet have onclick attributes in your HTML?
