Simple Question
Message ID:
I have a cgi that gets variables from a form (only numeric) and that form is 
sent to a text file to get the information that I need later. What I'm 
having problems with is that I need some fields to add themselves and 
display different totals on the same form when a modification is made to one 
of those fileds. I used a Javascript and tested it on an html, it works, but 
it doesn't seem to work on my cgi. Is there something I'm doing wrong, is 
there something else I can do?
Your help will be appreciated. Here is the javascript I'm using and also I 
attach the cgi.
Thanks in advance.

<script language="JavaScript">

   var totalBoxes = 11;
   function updateTotal(theform) {
        var d1_12 = 0;
        for (var i = 1; i < totalBoxes + 1; i++) {
             d1_12 -= eval('theform.num'+i).value;
        theform.d1_12.value = -d1_12;
