Invalid argument error in javascript on Microsoft Internet Explorer

When I try to defined the double Click action for a select object I make a call to a javascript function which throws an error in IE but not firefox.

Here is the call:

      <select
            name="selOffers" id="selOffers"
            size="30" class="OptsFormData" style="width: 400px;"
            onDblClick="handleClick(this.value, -1)"       
      >

The actual javascript function is attached in the code snippet.

Can anyone let me know how this can be corrected.





<script type="text/javascript">
		function handleClick(OffID, SeqID){
			if (SeqID != -1){
				window.open('CreativeGroups_POPUP.cfm?oid='+OffID+'&sid='+ SeqID, 'Creative Groups', 'height=200,width=200,top=350,left=350,resizable');
			}else{
				window.open('CreativeGroups_POPUP.cfm?oid='+OffID, 'Creative Groups', 'height=200,width=200,top=350,left=350,resizable');
			}
			
		}
	</script>

Try removing the spaces in the titles of the windows you are opening. In the code snippet below I replaced the spaces in the name 'Creative_Groups' with an underscore.
<script type="text/javascript">
		function handleClick(OffID, SeqID){
			if (SeqID != -1){
				window.open('CreativeGroups_POPUP.cfm?oid='+OffID+'&sid='+ SeqID, 'Creative_Groups', 'height=200,width=200,top=350,left=350,resizable');
			}else{
				window.open('CreativeGroups_POPUP.cfm?oid='+OffID, 'Creative_Groups', 'height=200,width=200,top=350,left=350,resizable');
			}
			
		}
</script>
 
<select 
            name="selOffers" id="selOffers" 
            size="30" class="OptsFormData" style="width: 400px;" 
            onDblClick="handleClick(this.value, 1)"       
      ><option value="1">1</option></select>
