The RadioGroup and the Text Field must be named as exactly as is for a coldFusion queries.

All you need to change in your original form is the form index from 1 to 0.
Like this:
onchange="document.forms[0].LevelCost.value=this.value">

And for the OtherLevel event handler use the reference: this.value

did you even try my post? it -does- work and in fact adds an additional feature which your original code doesn't have in that it updates levelcost to other amount when the radio for other is clicked - expecting a user to know they must hit enter and not providing an additional path is not great design.
