I'm not familiar with cakephp...

We cannot assume that the validate function is working properly, especially with ie. Can you provide the code for this rather than just '//some code'.

Alternatively the best way to debug some javascript code is to use alerts

alert(variable_name);

Cheers

the code is listed below:-
if(document.getElementById('SupportOprequired')!=null)
    {
        var val= document.getElementById('SupportOprequired').value;
        if(val=="Yes")
        {
            if(trim(document.getElementById('SupportPonumber').value)=="")
            {
                alert("Must have PO Number from the customer before you can save the call.");
                document.getElementById('SupportPonumber').value = trim(document.getElementById('SupportPonumber').value);
                document.getElementById('SupportPonumber').focus();
                return false;
            }
            else
                document.getElementById('SupportPonumber').value = trim(document.getElementById('SupportPonumber').value);

        }

    }

Make sure that your elements have a name attribute as well as an id attribute.

eg id="SupportPonumber" name="SupportPonumber"

There is a bug with ie7 and ie6 where it takes the name attribute rather than the id attribute for getElementById

a bit typical isnt it.
