Hi Experts,
After click on the button, nothing happens, only a sign on the bottom left corner of the page indicating an error on the page and saying Object expected.
Here is a simple code:

<cffunction name="updSchool" >
      <cfargument name="schName" type="string" required="yes">
       <cfquery name="NewSchool" datasource="#datasource#">
              INSERT INTO SCHOOLS (NAME)
            VALUES     ('#schName#')
          </cfquery>

</cffunction>

<cfform name="New">
        Name: <cfinput name="schname" type="text" value="" id="schname"><br>
      <cfinput type="button" value="Add Name" onclick="updSchool('schname';)" name="add"><br>
</cfform>
What am i missing? Please help.
Thank you.

The onClick is on browser side and the cffunction is on server side.
You can call server functions only by AJAX.

Check better this:

     <cffunction name="updSchool" >
      <cfargument name="schName" type="string" required="yes">
       <cfquery name="NewSchool" datasource="#datasource#">
              INSERT INTO SCHOOLS (NAME)
            VALUES     ('#schName#')
       </cfquery>
     </cffunction>

<cfform name="New">
        Name: <cfinput name="schname" type="text" value="" id="schname">
      <cfinput type="submit" value="Add Name" name="add"><br>
</cfform>

<cfif isDefined("FORM.add") >
  <cfoutput>
    Upadated: #updSchool(FORM.schname)#
  </cfoutput>
</cfif>

But beside that you will have a long way to make your funaction working: you do not return a result and you name you column Name. That is not the best choice.

thank you for the response.
I tried a function with a returning result and the name of the column not Name, i just put it there for example.
I want to try to use a SP instead of function.
Thanks anyway. I really appreciate it.
