Javascript is case-sensitive. The keyword is var--lowercase "v"--not Var.

All due respect, I'm not sure why BlueYonder's comment is considered to be a solution, since the Javascript was not fine...

I'm good on the points. If his post helped you, then that's what matters  = )

I didn't look at his link, so I have no idea if it was beneficial.
