Yes.
document.formname.fieldname.value

Open in new window


Of course, this requires your form to be named which few people do.
<form name="formname" action="actionurl" method="post">

Open in new window

Hi xmediaman,

Sorry it's taken so long to respond to your timely answer, I am afraid that my js studies took a back seat for a while during a crisis, I have got back on track and I now am up to date and learning again thank you very much.

Your answer was concise accurate and of great value.

Cheers

John
