When I use the "HiddenName", it always works, but if I use the elements 
array of the Form, the Problem is there again (sometimes - is it a bug or 

But maybe "eval" will help me to find out whats going on exactly - thanks 
for the tip!

The funny thing is:

I got:
document.FormName.elements[i].value = Something;

working in some cases, but sometimes I get Messages like:
"value is not a number" (I know that :-))
" is not a numeric literal"
"elements can not be index as an array"

But I think in a day or two, I'll have it working :-)
