document.formname.textarea.value output

I need to udate a hidden field in another form from a textarea on the same page, when i click refresh the data that comes back is always undefined.
this is basicly what I have sofar...
<script>
<!--
function getplans(id)
{
document.hiddenform.comments.value =      document.insert_asset.comments.value;
}
//-->
</script>

<form name="insert_asset">
<textarea name="comments" cols="20" rows="3" wrap="virtual"><%=Request("comments")%></textarea>
<input type="button" onclick getplans("123")>
</form>
<form name="hiddenform">
<input type="hidden" name="comments">
</form>

how do I get the comments input in hiddenform the same as the comments textarea  in insert_asset? ( I will then be using the hiddenform to post the info to another page.

Fair 'nuff. Ta for the points.

If I had ten cents for every dumb typo or copy/paste error I've made that caused me fits, I'd be nearly as rich as Bill Gates. ;)
