Hello everyone, I am new to this forum but i'm hoping you will all go easy on me! I am currently doing an e-commerce website for my course, and I have run into difficulty with the checkout page. Let me note, that this website only requires HTML, CSS, Javascript and cgi/perl (no php, ajax, etc). My web order structure is: frameset page-->
products page-->address details-->control page-->confirmation page.

Any how I am unable to carry forward the 'address details' values forward.

Currently my codes are:


Frameset page named "products2.html"
Code:
<HTML>

<HEAD>

<TITLE>Products Page</TITLE>

</HEAD>

<FRAMESET COLS="*,10" BORDER="0">

<FRAME SRC="products.html">

<FRAME SRC="control.htm">

</FRAMESET>

</HTML>
products.html page:
Code:
	<javascript>
	function processproducts() {

 products = document.forms["choices"]

 if(products.total.value=="" || products.total.value=="0")

  alert("You must select item and quantity!")

 else {

  controlForm = parent.frames[1].document.controlForm

  controlForm.total.value=products.total.value

  controlForm.myTextArea.value=products.myTextArea.value

  location.href="ship.html"

 }

}	</script>

	<form Action="" method="post"form name="choices" >

	
	<table>

	<tr><td>The Value of your order in ús is:</td></tr>

	<tr><td><input type=text name="total" size=12></td></tr>

	<tr><td>Products Ordered:</tr></td>

	<tr><td><textarea name="myTextArea" value="Blank" rows=6 cols=60>

	</textarea></td><tr>

	<tr><td><input type=button value="Sub-Total" onClick=submitOrder()></td></tr>

	<tr><td><input type=reset value="Clear"></td></tr>
	<tr><td><input type=button Name="next" value="Next" onClick=processproducts()></td></tr>

	</table>

	</form>
ship.html
Code:
<script Language="JavaScript">
function processship() {
  	ship = document.forms["shipDetails"]

 if(ship.firstName.value=="" || ship.firstName.value=="0"|| ship.lastName.value==""|| 
 ship.lastName.value=="0"|| ship.street.value==""|| ship.street.value=="0" || 
 ship.city.value=="0"|| ship.city.value==""|| ship.country.value=="0"|| ship.country.value==""|| 
 ship.postcode.value=="0"|| ship.postcode.value==""|| ship.phone.value==""|| 
 ship.phone.value=="0"|| ship.email.value==""|| ship.email.value=="0")

  alert("Error in shipping details, please correct")

 else{ 
controlForm = parent.frames[1].document.controlForm
	controlForm.lastName.value=ship.lastName.value
  controlForm.firstName.value=ship.firstName.value
  controlForm.street.value=ship.street.value
  controlForm.city.value=ship.city.value
  controlForm.country.value=ship.country.value
  controlForm.postcode.value=ship.postcode.value
  controlForm.phone.value=ship.phone.value
  controlForm.email.value=ship.email.value
  location.href="form3.htm"

 }
}
</script>

<p></p>
<input type=button name="next" value="Confirm Order" onClick=processship() >
</form>
controlForm.htm
Code:
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript"><!--
// --></SCRIPT>
</HEAD>
<BODY>
<FORM ACTION="http://.../cgi/thanks.cgi"

<INPUT TYPE="HIDDEN" NAME="myTextArea" VALUE="">
</FORM>
</BODY>

My confirmation page will be generated by .cgi

I would be very grateful if anyone could have a look and see where my coding has gone wrong especially as when I get to "ship.html" and click the submit button, it does not
