Hi adspmo,
>                                               if ( document.all.RequestType.value !== "RFA" )
>                                               elseif( !RTGValidateForm(TK ) )


This looks wrong.  Here are the possible syntax variations for JS if statements:

if ( condition )
    single_statement


if ( condition ) {
    first_statement
    seoncd_statement
}


if ( condition )
    single_positive_statement
else
    single_negative_statment


And of course, single_positive_statement and/oor single_negative_sttament could easily be turned into multiple statements by replacing teh single statment with braces-enclosing-several.

So, first off, there is no statement after your if, so JS will think the elseif is supposed to be an exevutable statement.  Second, there should be a space between else and if, because JS doesn't use elseif.

Cheers!

Ok I tried to slim it down. Myintent is to validate all forms but the RFA=Problem Rpt
Case: Pending Approval
  if ( document.all.RequestType.value == "RFA-Problem Rpt" )
                                      if ( !RTGValidateForm() )
                        return false      
                  v = "Forecast Effort (mandays)/Effort, Proposal Valid Thru/DateValidThru, Scheduled Start/DateScheduledStart, Committed Delivery/DateCommittedDelivery, Engineering Group/EngineeringGroup,Time Keeper Project Code/TKProjCode"
                  if ( document.all.RequestType.value == "Certification" ) v += ",Engineer Contact Name/CertEngineer,Engineer Contact Phone/CertPhone,Engineer Contact E-Mail/CertEmail"
                  if ( !RTGValidateForm( v ) )
                        return false
                  break

adspmo,
Just look at your structure!

If RFA then
    if not valid Then
        return false
    end if
end if

That ONLY validates the RFA, the opposite of what you said!

I think you want something like:

If RFA Then
    return true


'Now we know we are not RFA, so validate
v = "list of fields to validate"
etc.

Also, I don't understand the RTGValidateForm function.  You have it called both with and without a parameter.  I assume that when you pass it a parameter, it assumes the parameter to be a string it can split at comma, and take each value and check whether it was filled in or not.
