    Cannot get cookie to work

    I have been working with this for awhile now and cannot seem to get it right. I have a main page (contact us form) where the user fills in their information, once done they are redirected to another page thanking them. I have been trying to add a cookie on the main page that tells if the user has already filled out the form and send them to a whole new page stating they have already filled the form out. Here is what I have.

    Contact us page

    Suggest you post your cookie code rather than your web page code if its a code problem, if you want to move the <script type="text/javascript" src="cookieRedirect.js"></script> so it sits like this in your page and see how thing go...
    HTML Code:
    <script type="text/javascript" src="cookieRedirect.js"></script>
    It might make a difference.
    Yes, I know I'm about as subtle as being hit by a bus..(\\.\ Aug08)
    Yep... I say it like I see it, even if it is like a baseball bat in the nutz... (\\.\ Aug08)
    I want to leave this world the same way I came into it, Screaming, Incontinent & No memory!
    I laughed that hard I burst my colostomy bag... (\\.\ May03)
    Life for some is like a car accident... Mine is like a motorway pile up...

    This is what I have on the cookieredirect.js page

    var RedirectURL = "alreadysubmitted.html"
    var DaysToLive = "365";
    var CookieName = "HasVisited";
    function Action() {
    location.href = RedirectURL;
    DaysToLive = parseInt(DaysToLive);
    var Value = 'bypass page next time';
    function GetCookie() {
    var cookiecontent = '';
    if(document.cookie.length > 0) {
       var cookiename = CookieName + '=';
       var cookiebegin = document.cookie.indexOf(cookiename);
       var cookieend = 0;
       if(cookiebegin > -1) {
          cookiebegin += cookiename.length;
          cookieend = document.cookie.indexOf(";",cookiebegin);
          if(cookieend < cookiebegin) { cookieend = document.cookie.length; }
          cookiecontent = document.cookie.substring(cookiebegin,cookieend);
    if(cookiecontent.length > 0) { return true; }
    return false;
    function SetCookie() {
    var exp = '';
    if(DaysToLive > 0) {
       var now = new Date();
       then = now.getTime() + (DaysToLive * 24 * 60 * 60 * 1000);
       exp = '; expires=' + now.toGMTString();
    document.cookie = CookieName + '=' + Value + exp;
    return true;
    if(GetCookie() == true) { Action(); }

    Setting, Getting and Deleting cookies.

    function setCookie(name, value, expires, path, domain, secure){
    	if (!expires){expires = new Date()}
    	document.cookie = name + "=" + escape(value) + 
    		((expires == null) ? "" : "; expires=" + expires.toGMTString()) +
    		((path == null) ? "" : "; path=" + path) +
    		((domain == null) ? "" : "; domain=" + domain) +
    		((secure == null) ? "" : "; secure")
    function getCookie(name) {
    	var arg = name + "=", alen = arg.length, clen = document.cookie.length, i = 0
    	while (i < clen) {
    		var j = i + alen
    		if (document.cookie.substring(i, j) == arg){
    			return getCookieVal(j)
    		i = document.cookie.indexOf(" ", i) + 1
    		if (i == 0) break
    return null
    function getCookieVal(offset){
    	var endstr = document.cookie.indexOf (";", offset);
    	if (endstr == -1)
    		endstr = document.cookie.length;
    return unescape(document.cookie.substring(offset, endstr));
    function deleteCookie(name,path,domain){
    	document.cookie = name + "=" +
    		((path == null) ? "" : "; path=" + path) +
    		((domain == null) ? "" : "; domain=" + domain) +
    		"; expires=Thu, 01-Jan-00 00:00:01 GMT"

    Set a future date like this...

    dateObject = new Date();

    setCookie(CookieName , Value , dateObject);
