Hi, i have the following script.

<script type="text/javascript">

function checkDate(nForm){

var sDate = nForm['dc1'].value;
sDate = sDate.split('-');
sDate = new Date(sDate[2],sDate[1]-1,sDate[0])
var eDate = nForm['dc2'].value;
eDate = eDate.split('-');
eDate = new Date(eDate[2],eDate[1]-1,eDate[0])
nForm['daysApart'].value = (eDate-sDate)/86400000;


return true;


How do i put the below value into a hidden text field.

Use nForm.hiddenFieldName.value = nForm['daysApart'].value;
