I have ask this question years ago and it worked well.  I am trying to update the database and this is there error I get on the web side.  

Here is the Code.

cw=window.open('','','height=150,width=300,status');
cw.moveTo(200,200);
cw.document.write('<html><head><title>Add Comment</title></head>'+
'<body><form><h3>Please Enter Comment</h3>'+
'<textarea name=add_comment_2 rows=2 cols=30></textarea>'+
'<input type=button value=OK '+
'onClick="opener.document.forms[0].Comments.value=\'\';'+
'opener.document.forms[0].CommentHistory.value+=\'\\n\'+'+
'opener.document.forms[0].CommentPrefix.value+'+
'document.forms[0].add_comment_2.value;'+
'opener.document.forms[0].RefreshButton.onclick();window.close()">'+
'<input type=button value=Cancel '+
'onClick="window.close()">'+
'</form></body></html>');
cw.document.close();

Here the attributes on CommentPrefix

value = @Name([CN]; @UserName) + " " + @Text(@Now)+" "
type = text - computed for display
hidden from client and web

Thanks

If CommentPrefix is a hidden field or a computed for display field, it won't normally exist on the web page.  Look at the page source, see if you can find any reference to <INPUT Name="CommentPrefix"...

What you can do is make it an editable field, and just put in an HTML attribute of TYPE=HIDDEN

Jaziar,
Does the COmmentPrefix field is inside the form tag. As Qwal pointed , Just have a look at the view source and check whether COmmentPrefix is generated or  not, If it is not , then you might have to use ID to set the value

Also make sure that you have used the exact case for the reference, because JavaScript is case-sensitive.

As suggested above, make sure to remove any hide-when's for the browser use 'display:none' or 'type=hidden' parameters to hide the field in the browser.
