Save new highest records compare with old calculation value

i am generating 3 values randomly and calculate bigger one from 3.

calculate bigger diff with compare with big random value which i created.

so the final calculated value in row 3 is changing all time.

now i want to record highest/maximum diff value set fixed in row 4

my code here:

Code:
```

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

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

var timerSeed;
var timer;

function processData() {
var R = parseInt(document.getElementById("P3:0:0").innerHTML);
var S = parseInt(document.getElementById("P3:1:0").innerHTML);
var T = parseInt(document.getElementById("P3:2:0").innerHTML);

//find the max of RST
var maxPhase = Math.max(R,S,T);
document.getElementById("maxVolts").innerHTML = maxPhase;

//subract the other 2 voltages from the max
var RR = Math.abs(maxPhase-R);
var RS = Math.abs(maxPhase-S);
var RT = Math.abs(maxPhase-T);

var diff = Math.max(RR,RS,RT);
document.getElementById("maxVolts2").innerHTML=diff;

/***********Maximum diff records in field compare with new diff*******/
var newv =  diff;
var oldv = 0;
if (newv > oldv) { oldv = newv ;}
else { oldv = oldv ; }

document.getElementById("saj1").innerText = oldv;

}

//this function simulates changing voltages via a setInterval()
function setNewVoltages() {
document.getElementById("P3:0:0").innerHTML = parseInt(document.getElementById("P3:0:0").innerHTML) + Math.round(Math.random()+2);
document.getElementById("P3:1:0").innerHTML = parseInt(document.getElementById("P3:1:0").innerHTML) + Math.round(Math.random()+2);
document.getElementById("P3:2:0").innerHTML = parseInt(document.getElementById("P3:2:0").innerHTML) + Math.round(Math.random()+2);
}

//-->
</script>

<div><center>
<table>
<tr>
<td class="inner" align="left">
<div class="value" id="P3:0:0">10</div>
</td> <td> </td> <td> </td> <td> </td><td> </td> <td> </td> <td> </td><td> </td> <td> </td> <td> </td>
<td class="inner" align="left">
<div class="value" id="P3:1:0">13</div>
</td><td> </td> <td> </td> <td> </td><td> </td> <td> </td> <td> </td><td> </td> <td> </td> <td> </td>
<td class="inner" align="left">
<div class="value" id="P3:2:0">15</div>
</td>
</tr>
</table>
<br /> <br />
</div>

<div>
<span>Bigger value= </span><span id="maxVolts"></span>
</div>
<br /><br />
<div>
<span>Difference  = </span><span id="maxVolts2"></span></div>
<br /><br />

<div><span>Max  diff record =   </span><span id="saj1"></span> </div>

</body>
</html>```
but i am facing problem in the output row 4 is not showing calculated result which must be calculate continuously after each 1 sec with compare with output row 3 and show the highest result in row 4 .

all coding are working well with out this row 4 code
Code:
```var newv =  diff;
var oldv = 0;
if (newv > oldv) { oldv = newv ;}
else { oldv = oldv ; }

document.getElementById("saj1").innerText = oldv;```
i also tried this way but not working

Code:
```var newv =  diff;
var oldv = newv ;    // i set it 0 or newv, but not working

var oldv1 = Math.max(newv,oldv);

document.getElementById("saj1").innerText = oldv1;```
What change i need here specially for output row 4 result...

2. Have you confirmed that the value of "diff" you get is numeric?

yes, after your reply i open it in iE, its coming in IE ...that means code is ok.
but problem is row 4 "Max diff record =" is going up if row 3 "difference" is going up,but if row 3 "difference" go down row 4 results also go down.i want row 4 increase if row 3 results increase but its stay the previous result if row 3 results go down.

that means i think, else {} not working or var oldv = 0; needs to define again...am i right?

Code:
```var newv =  diff;
var oldv = 0;
if (newv > oldv) { oldv = newv ;}
else { oldv = oldv ; }
document.getElementById("saj1").innerText = oldv;```
from my main code if i change the little code like this, row 3 sometimes go up and sometimes down
Code:
```function setNewVoltages() {
document.getElementById("P3:0:0").innerHTML = parseInt(document.getElementById("P3:0:0").innerHTML) + Math.round(Math.random()-2);
document.getElementById("P3:1:0").innerHTML = parseInt(document.getElementById("P3:1:0").innerHTML) + Math.round(Math.random()-2);
document.getElementById("P3:2:0").innerHTML = parseInt(document.getElementById("P3:2:0").innerHTML) + Math.round(Math.random()-2);
}```
example: what i need :
if Difference = 3, Max diff record = 3.
if Difference = 5, Max diff record = 5. [if 1st one increase, 2nd one also increase. compare to previous 3(row 1 2nd result ) and 5(row 2 (1st) ]
if Difference = 2, Max diff record = 5. [needs to show previous one compare 5(row 2 2nd result ) and 2( row 3,1st result) ]
if Difference = 1, Max diff record = 5. [needs to show previous one compare 5 and 1]
