Is it possible to convert this VB script to javascript?  This code works behind a button on a .net application.

Just wanted to see if javascript might make it more browser compliant
<table id="tblReqField" class="Form"> <tr class="SectionHeader"><TH>Actions</TH></TR></TABLE>

<button class="exButton" language="VBS" onclick="DoSomething()">Schedule appointment</button>

<script language="VBS">

Sub DoSomething()

   window.location = "WflRequest.aspx?CopyFields=1;2;30;31;91;&BCAction=0&Type=6011&CopyFrom=" & frmMain.RequestID.Value

End Sub

</script>

try:
<script type="text/javascript">

function DoSomething()
{
   window.location.href = "WflRequest.aspx?CopyFields=1;2;30;31;91;&BCAction=0&Type=6011&CopyFrom=" + document.frmMain.RequestID.value;

}

</script>


NOTE: Unlike VBScript, Javascript IS case sensitive. Thus, due to:
document.frmMain.RequestID.value;

your HTML should have:
<form name="frmMain"...>

but NOT <form name="FrmMain"...> (notice the capital "F").  To javascript, frmMain and FrmMain are different.

The same goes for the other input - you should have:
<input name="RequestID" ...>

IF your markup is different, then adjust the javascript line accordingly - in other words, if you have:

<form name="FRMMain"...>
<input name="requestID" ...>

then you should use this instead:
document.FRMMain.requestID.value;
