Your XML looks invalid to me
You are not using documentElement with responseXML
You need to debug and see what you are actually referencing.

i am getting error in this line object required
document.getElementById.innerHTML=xmlDoc.getElementsByTagName("memberid")[0].childNodes[0].nodeValue;

my xml format is like this

<bookissue>
<memberid>m0001</memberid>
<bookname>c programming</bookname>
<authorname>balagurusamy</authorname>
<doi>12-oct-2009</doi>
<dd>22-oct-2009</doi>
</bookissue>

is there syntax problem in this line? can anybody tell how to get these values?

document.getElementById.innerHTML


I hope this is a typo. You have to pass the element id to this method
The XML is also invalid
<dd>22-oct-2009</doi>



Thanks,

You have a typo in your xml there with the dd. You XML it is invalid. Read #4 here: http://radio.javaranch.com/pascarello/2006/09/12/1158096122600.html
