in reply to JScript and Perl

You've got the quoting wrong in the

print table({-width=>'97%',-cellpadding=>4,-cellspacing=>5}, Tr({-align=>RIGHT,-valign=>TOP}, td( submit(-name=>'Update',-value=>'Update',-onClick(Validat +eForm(this.form)))) ) );
I think you want something like:
print table({-width=>'97%',-cellpadding=>4,-cellspacing=>5}, Tr({-align=>RIGHT,-valign=>TOP}, td( submit(-name=>'Update',-value=>'Update',-onClick => 'Val +idateForm(this.form)')) ) );

    Thanks. I have corrected the mistakes and able to compile. But I it is working ie. does not call that function (ValidateForm). No alert message is coming. This is the part of the JScript.
    function ValidateForm(){ var Phone=document.inFOrm.Mobile alert("In JS") if ((Phone.value==null)||(Phone.value=="")){ alert("Please Enter your Phone Number") Phone.focus() return false } }
      Now we're into the world of some other language. In your browser turn on the javascript console (in Mozilla you just type javascript: into the location bar not sure how to do it in IE). You need to find out what kind of error happens when you click on the Submit button. I suspect since your calling ValidateForm(this.form) when you click the button, your function should be modified to use the passed variable...
      function ValidateForm(foo){ alert("In JS"); if ((foo.Mobile.value==null)||(foo.Mobile.value=="")){ alert("Please Enter your Phone Number"); foo.Mobile.focus(); return false; } }
      Also in your code I supsect inFOrm should be inForm which might just fix your problem without rewritting the function like I just did.
