    U got to learn about JavaScript DOM. go through the link
    [url]http://www.informit.com/articles/article.asp?p=29878[/url]

    U can either access an element value through..
    window.doent.formname.elementname.value = 'value';

    or

    window.doent.getElementById('test').value = 'value';

    or

    window.doent.getElementByName('test').value = 'value';
