    <aura:attribute name="fields" type="String[]" default="Id,Name" />
    <aura:attribute name="tableId" type="String"/>
    <aura:handler name="init" value="{!this}" action="{!c.doInit}"/>

    <html xmlns="" xmlns:xlink="">    
            <div class="wrapperscoop">                
                <div class="slds-card__header slds-grid">
                    <div class="slds-media slds-mcate">
                        <div class="slds-media__figure">                           
                        <div class="slds-media__body">
                            <h2 class="slds-text-heading--small slds-truncate">Recently Viewed</h2>
                <div class="slds-card__body">                    
                    <section class="slds-card__body">
                        <div class="slds-scrollable--x">
                            <table class="slds-table slds-table--bordered slds-max-medium-table--stacked-horizontal">
                                    <tr class="slds-no-hover">
                                        <aura:iteration items="{!v.fields}" var="field" >
                                            <th class="slds-text-heading--label slds-size--1-of-6" scope="col">{!field}</th>
                                <tbody id="{!v.tableId}">

    doInit  : function(component, event, helper) {
        var action = component.get("c.getRecords");
        var fields = component.get("v.fields");  
        var tableId = component.get("v.tableId"); 
            ObjectName : component.get("v.object"),
            limits : component.get("v.limit"),
            //alert('Check1' + fields);
            fieldstoget : fields.join()
            var delayMillis = 1000;
            var state = response.getState();
            if(state === 'SUCCESS'){
                var retRecords = response.getReturnValue();
                retRecords.forEach(function(s) {
                    var tableRow = document.createElement('tr');
                        var tableData = document.createElement('td');
                        var tableDataNode = document.createTextNode(s[field]);
                    // alert(tableId);
                    //alert('tableval' + document.getElementById(tableId) );
                    setTimeout(function() {
                 }, delayMillis);
            }else if (state === "ERROR") {

But when i try calling it from Vf page its not able to take the div id and reads it null and hence shows below error , can anybody help me on this,thanks..

This page has an error. You might just need to refresh it. Error in $A.getCallback() [Cannot read property 'appendChild' of null] Callback failed: apex://PMD_DispRecordsController/ACTION$getRecords Failing descriptor: {markup://c:PMD_LightningHomepage}

Please suggest .

Note : This coponnent Works fine when i do not call it from Vf page i.e preview it directly.

I have also created a dynamic table component. All you need to do is pass object name, columns and filter criteria. Sorting is also implememnted and its mobile compatible. I can share the code if you like.

I am not sure if this will work on VF as well. Are you displaying any other details on vf other than table itself?

If anyone else encounters this and it doesn't work for them (in aura),
I needed double qoutes on the element create to get it to work:

var tableRow = document.createElement("tr");
