    to start,
    product1=document.form1.getElementById(keyboard*40)

    those lines are looking for variables when you need a string
    the way it sis, the way the machine reads it is var keyboard multiplied by 40

    Question s

    does it not get the string value when getElementById is made equal to that variable?
    ie: product1=document.getElementById((keyboard)*40)

    product one is equal to the element with id of keyboard and a value of whatever the user enters?

    thats what I was trying to do anyway....

    Code:
    product1=document.getElementById('keyboard').value*40;
