Hi everyone, I'm attempting to import an external script into an HTML file. The name of the js file that I want to import is hosted in a SQL database. Therefore, I am using a XMLHttpRequest to access the SQL database so that I can fetch the appropriate name of the script. I then create a script element where I set src equal to 'this.responseText' which should import the name taken from the SQL database. However, the script isn't being executed and I believe it's because it's run within a function. Therefore, I would like to append the js.src to the top of the header next to 'script1' and 'script2' which I assume would then allow the script to be imported successfully. Any ideas as to how this can be done?
