whats your FORM tag. Can you give what you have used.
action = "javascript:myfunction()" and
<script language="javascript">
function myFunction() {....
Should work fine.

Hi Smitha
Be sure that update button u r using shouldn't be a of input type="Submit". If it is change it to button also change the name of button other than submit b sure about the code on onclick
I agree. Here's the link:
subject: Submit button
