Why all the complicated referencing? Just give the element an id value, and use the id with document.getElementById().

Not sure what you combo box is, but is it causing the page to post back or something which is resetting the page?

Hi .
Am very sorry for late reply.
The form was fully dynamic and they were using some inner HTML.
Mistake was on my side. I have given wrong name. I found and corrected it.
Thank you all. .
