    mortgage calculator problems

    Hi all,

    I am trying to modify a mortgage calculator script that I found at: http://www.1stop-mortgagecalculator....culator-Script.

    I'm new to js and I need my result "monthly_payment" to display on the form in a text box. Can anyone tell me how to do it? A colleague suggested to put it in a div tag and use .InnerHtml, however, I don't know how to do that and I am unfamiliar with the .innerHtml property(?)

    Here is my code:
    <html>

    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
    <title>Mortgage calculator</title>
    </head>

    <body>

    <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
    <!--

    function find_payment(PR, IN, PE) {
    var PAY = (PR * IN) / (1 - Math.pow(1 + IN, -PE))
    return PAY
    }

    //var principal = 200000
    //var interest = 0.088
    //var term = 30
    //var monthly_payment = find_payment(principal, interest / 12, term * 12);


    var principal = document.formpage.principal.value;
    var interest = document.formpage.interest.value/100;
    var term = document.getElementById('years').term.value;
    var monthly_payment = find_payment(principal, interest / 12, term * 12);


    //document.write("Amount of the loan: $" + principal + "<br>" +
    //"Annual interest rate:\t" + interest * 100 + "%<br>" +
    //"Term of the mortgage loan:\t" + term + " years<br><br>" +
    //"Monthly payment: $" + monthly_payment)

    //alert("Amount of the loan:\t$" + principal + "\n" +
    //"Annual interest rate:\t" + interest * 100 + "%\n" +
    //"Term of the mortgage loan:\t" + term + " years\n\n" +
    //"Monthly payment:\t$" + monthly_payment)


    //-->
    </script>


    <form name="formpage">
    <table bgcolor="#ffffff" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="478">
    <tbody>
    <tr valign="top">
    <td width="183">Amount to be financed:<br /></td>

    <tr valign="top">
    <td colspan="2" class="footnote">
    <p> * Valid as of June 1, 2006
    <input name="txtDate_Last_Updated" size="5" value="2/1/2006" type="hidden">
    </p> </td>
    </tr>
    </tbody>
    </table>


    </form>
    </body>

    </html>




    All,

    I keep getting an error: "document.formpage.principal is null or not an object". I am very confused. Can any one help me out?

    THANKS, I appreciate it!!!

    Add a field to hold the output:
    Code:
      <input type="text" id="result">
    In the script in place of the document.write, put in code to display the result in the above field:
    Code:
      document.forms[0].result.value=monthly_payment;
