I have a form element say textfield and name of that text field is say quality_03. the 03 is calculated dynamically. Finally I would like to assign a value for that text field say.,


var numVal=03 // Its calculated in loop I have given this for an example.

For this I have used

var txt = form."quality"+"_"+numVal.value
var txt=3

But it didnt accept. It shows the error as txt not object. Can someone help me out with this one. I need this very urgently. I have deployment tonight.
