parent.window problem with select list

Posts: n/a
From an intranet sit i am running a function from a onchange event:

<script language='javascript'>
function update(a)
var url="dropdownupdate.asp";
url=url + "?id=" +;
url=url + "&val=" + a.value

that opens this asp page. the page will not update the parent though, any
ideas why ? The parent field 'product is cleared of it's default vallue but
it is not replaced with the new value

Dim cn
Dim sql
Dim rs
Dim id
Dim vl

set cn=Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
cn.Open "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Password=glencoe;Persist Security
Info=True;User ID=qadmin;Initial Catalog=UserInfo;Data Source=TLGUKSP17"
set RS =Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")

id =request.querystring ("id")
vl = request.querystring("val")

if id="Range" then
sql ="SELECT Product FROM Menlosoft WHERE (Range = N'" & vl & "') GROUP BY
Product" sql,cn
end if


response.write "<script language='javascript'>"
response.write " var selectbox=window.opener.document.form2.Product;"

do while not rs.eof

response.write "selectbox.options[" & counter & "]=new Option('" &
rs.fields(0) & "','" & rs.fields(0) & "');"
response.write "selectbox.options[1]=new Option('help','help');"

response.write "</script>"
set rs=nothing


thanks in anticipation of assistance
