There are possibly 2 problems with this,

the first is that 'getElementById' returns a pointer to the object so if you want to use this you will have to do

the_div = parent.iframe_1.document.getElementById("THEFIELD");
the_div.innerHTML = WHATEVER;

Note that you probably don't need to get the element by id, you should be able to set the innerHTML directly as seen in the example below.

The other Problem could be that because the div is in an iframe you need to include the name of the iframe in the code to access the div.

For example if the div "div_1" is in "iframe_1" and you are trying to do something with it from "iframe_2" the code might need to be

parent.iframe_1.div_1.innerHTML = WHATEVER;

Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.
