Try this:
response.write "<<script>var msg1 = 'This is a calculated field'</script>"
response.write ourSymbol & "<input type=text name='IT" & rs.fields.item("ProductID") & "' size=6 onChange='alert(msg1)'>"

Good luck,
zvonko

or, if you want double-quotes in VBScript, then you double them:

response.write ourSymbol & "<input type='text' name='IT" & rs.fields.item("ProductID") & "' size='6'
onChange='alert(""This is a calculated field"")'>"

Sorry, a typo. Here corrected:
Try this:
response.write "<script>var msg1 = 'This is a calculated field'</script>"
response.write ourSymbol & "<input type=text name='IT" & rs.fields.item("ProductID") & "' size=6 onChange='alert(msg1)'>"

Of course is a better idea to place all strings into variables in <head> section.

Cheers,
zvonko

try adding this in the tag:

onFocus='this.blur();'

... instead of the onChange (which is not needed if that is all you want to do)

response.write ourSymbol & "<input type=text name='IT" & rs.fields.item("ProductID") & "' size=6 onChange='alert(msg1)'>"
