The aim of this paper is to prove strong convergence theorem by a modified three step iterative process with errors for three nonexpansive mappings in the frame work of uniformly smooth Banach spaces. The main feature of this scheme is that its special cases can handle both strong convergence like Halpern type and weak convergence like Ishikawa type iteration schemes. Our result extend and generalize the result of S. H. Khan, Kim and Xu and many other authors.
