Replace function

I am writing a replace function in Javascript to remove the spaces in a filename which is used for file upload. Somehow my replace function is not getting executed.

Here is the code:

<SCRIPT language = JavaScript>

function test ()
var str1 = document.formname.filename.value
str1 = str1.replace(" ", "%20");
and this function is called on the submit button.

Can you please let me know where I am going wrong.
