My code is below - I thought it was ok, but I'm getting an error.  The error is this:

Line: 12  (I believe it is this - var mi = document.temps.IR.value / 1200;)
Char: 3

Error: 'document.temps.IR' is null or not an object
Code: 0

Not quite sure what "temps" is. I replaced it with a form and it works.

  }
function dosum()
  {
  var mi = document.forms[0].IR.value / 1200;
  var base = 1;
  var mbase = 1 + mi;
  for (i=0; i<document.forms[0].YR.value * 12; i++)
  {
  base = base * mbase
  }
  document.forms[0].PI.value = floor(document.forms[0].LA.value * mi / ( 1 - (1/base)))
  document.forms[0].MT.value = floor(document.forms[0].AT.value / 12)
  document.forms[0].MI.value = floor(document.forms[0].AI.value / 12)
  var dasum = document.forms[0].LA.value * mi / ( 1 - (1/base)) +
  document.forms[0].AT.value / 12 +
  document.forms[0].AI.value / 12;
  document.forms[0].MP.value = floor(dasum);
