Well what I really need to do is to scroll through all my forms which are actually called: form1, form2, form3,... form50.

Now writing:

Value = Value+document.form.form1.value+document.form.form2.value+etc.... Can get tiring.  So I tried this:

for (i=1; i <= MaxForms; i++) {
     if(document.form.dowhat.value=="INSERT"){
     Insert = Insert+document.form.table+i.value+","
     }else{
     
     }
}

Now it gives me 50 values but are undefined.  How do I do something like this?

Perhaps something like:

function getAll()
{
str='';
for (i=0;i<document.forms.length;i++)
{
   for (j=0;j<document.forms[i].elements.length;j++)
   {
      str+=document.forms[i].elements[j].value;
   }
}
alert(str);
}

Thanks for your reply COBO.. The only problem is I have some form data that I do not want to go along with it.  So that is why I would like document.form.something+i.value.  I did this before in ASP, but I am moving to JavaScript because I really don't need a Server Side script to load a whole new page.  Before in ASP I had request.form("table" & i).  This worked well.

I am not advanced in JavaScript.  So you may have the right answer, but I don't know how to make it so it only reads the forms that start with things like table.  IE table+i, table1, table2 etc

If you are trying to use a name with a numeric suffix then perhaps:

somevar1="table"+i;
somevar2="field"+j;
document.forms[somevar1].elements[somevar2].value

It will get confused by an expression in the index, but if you set a variable and then use the variable as an index is should work.
