I need to know what needs to done in order to make this work
I've got my php code that queries/results from my mysql db here
$con = mysql_connect("localhost","userr","passw*rd);
if (!$con)
  die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());

mysql_select_db("databasee", $con);

$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM fags");

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
  echo "<b>". $row['Question'] . "</b><br/> " . $row['Answer'];
  echo "<br />";


and then I use this php include tag/command/function
<?php include("thefileurl/filename.php"); ?>

and I use it in this javascript function, which is located in an external file on my server(lamp server)
function faqclick() 
{ document.getElementById('sfhead').innerHTML="<br><h2>F.A.Q.</h2><h3>Frequently Asked Questions.</h3>";
document.getElementById('sfcontent').innerHTML="<?php include('http://hiphop-tops.com/testsite/header.php'); ?>";

does anyone have any insight as to why it's not working and what I can do to make it work?

Javascript runs on the client and PHP on the Server. By the time Javascript executes, PHP is nolonger active. To do what you want to do, you need to look at an AJAX solution. You can go to the sister forum to this one AJAXfreaks.com (http://www.ajaxfreaks.com/). You can also look at the YAHOO! User Interface Library Connection Manager module (http://developer.yah...yui/connection/) which takes alot of the pain of AJAX programming away.
