//date1
 <td>Date of Purchase :</td>
    <td><input type="text" name="dop" onblur = "setvalue(this.value)"  />
    <a href="javascript:show_calendar('customer.dop');"
    onmouseover="window.status='DatePicker'; return true;"
    onmouseout="window.status='';return true;">
    <img src="face.jpg" width=24 height=22 border=0></a>
    </td>
...
...
...
    <td><input type="text" name="InsDateA" />
         <a href="javascript:show_calendar('customer.InsDateA');"
        onmouseover="window.status='DatePicker'; return true;"
        onmouseout="window.status='';return true;">
        <img src="face.jpg" width=24 height=22 border=0></a>

If it is in a form say
<form name ="frm">
</form>

function setvalue(vdata)
{
document.frm.InsDateA.value = vdata;
document.frm.InsDateB.value = vdata;
document.frm.InsDateC.value = vdata;

}

Your code might look like this:


<!doctype html public "-//w3c//dtd html 3.2//en">

<html>

<head>

<script>
function setvalue(vdata)
{
document.frm.InsDateA.value = vdata;
document.frm.InsDateB.value = vdata;

}
</script>
</head>

<body bgcolor="#ffffff" text="#000000" link="#0000ff" vlink="#800080" alink="#ff0000">
<form name ="frm">
<td>Date of Purchase :</td>
<td><input type="text" name="dop" onblur = "setvalue(this.value)" />
<a href="javascript:show_calendar('customer.dop');"
onmouseover="window.status='DatePicker'; return true;"
onmouseout="window.status='';return true;">
<img src="face.jpg" width=24 height=22 border=0></a>
</td>


<td><input type="text" name="InsDateA" />
<a href="javascript:show_calendar('customer.InsDateA');"
onmouseover="window.status='DatePicker'; return true;"
onmouseout="window.status='';return true;">
<img src="face.jpg" width=24 height=22 border=0></a>
</td>


<td><input type="text" name="InsDateB" />
<a href="javascript:show_calendar('customer.InsDateB');"
onmouseover="window.status='DatePicker'; return true;"
onmouseout="window.status='';return true;">
<img src="face.jpg" width=24 height=22 border=0></a>
</td>

this updates everything wherever textbox you type into:

<html>
<head>
<script>
function setvalue(vdata)
{document.frm.dop.value = vdata;
document.frm.InsDateA.value = vdata;
document.frm.InsDateB.value = vdata;}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<form name ="frm">
<table><tr>
<td>Date of Purchase :</td>
<td><input type="text" name="dop" onblur="setvalue(this.value)" />
<a href="javascript:show_calendar('customer.dop');"
onmouseover="window.status='DatePicker'; return true;"
onmouseout="window.status='';return true;">
<img src="face.jpg" width="24" height="22" border="0" /></a>
</td>
<td><input type="text" name="InsDateA" onblur="setvalue(this.value)" />
<a href="javascript:show_calendar('customer.InsDateA');"
onmouseover="window.status='DatePicker'; return true;"
onmouseout="window.status='';return true;">
<img src="face.jpg" width="24" height="22" border="0" /></a>
</td>
<td><input type="text" name="InsDateB" onblur="setvalue(this.value)" />
<a href="javascript:show_calendar('customer.InsDateB');"
onmouseover="window.status='DatePicker'; return true;"
onmouseout="window.status='';return true;">
<img src="face.jpg" width="24" height="22" border="0" /></a>
</td>
</tr></table>
</form>
