On a ascx web page I have a Repeater. The Repeater has a DDL, 3 text boxes and a "Save" button. When a user updates a number in text box "txtRate" or in text box "txtHours" in any row I want a client-side javascript function to multiply the values in those two boxes and put the result in text box "txtCost" in that same row- no postbacks involved - postback will happen when the user clicks "Save". Obviously this calculation must only apply to that particular row.
I have a javacsript function that only fires on the first row of the repeater and no other but then it applies the calculation to the "txtCost" in the SECOND row!

Function and Repeater code are attached. Any advice gratefully received.
function RPTcalculateCost()
        var a = document.getElementById("ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$IR$ctl00$rptJobDetails$ctl01$txtRate");
        var b = document.getElementById("ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$IR$ctl00$rptJobDetails$ctl02$txtHours");
        var c = document.getElementById("ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$IR$ctl00$rptJobDetails$ctl02$txtCost");
        if (b.value == '')
            c.value = 0;
            c.value = parseFloat(a.value) * parseFloat(b.value);
