Let me append my earlier post.

If you write a function like this:

function myfunction(name){
        document.form.name.do_something_legal_to_this_object
}

All you have to do on subsequent pages is pass the name of the object into
the function and you're good to go (e.g.
onClick="javascript:myfunction(objectName)") as long as the function is
included in the page.

Sorry for any confusion.
