Setting the value of window.opener from popup window name

Hi Everyone -

I have a data entry form that allows the user to click a button
and have that button popup a list of available values -

the code on the popup window uses the name of the form
to determine what field to populate on the opener...

function sendComment()

var x
x = document.canned _comment_form.l b1.value;
name = self.window.nam e;
if(name == "CMT1")
window.opener.d ocument.main_fo rm.comment_1_tb .value = x;

if(name == "CMT2")
window.opener.d ocument.main_fo rm.comment_2_tb .value = x;

if(name == "CMT3")
window.opener.d ocument.main_fo rm.comment_3_tb .value = x;

Now - I have switched the data entry to a dynamic type of form -
where each section can have multiple comment boxes -
so the question i have is ....

how do i build the
window.opener.d ocument.main_fo rm.comment_3_tb .value = x;

line to replace the .comment_3_tb. with
name = self.window.nam e;
in other words -

i now have this line...
window.opener.d ocument.main_fo rm.comment_3_tb .value = x;

but i need it to be...
window.opener.d ocument.main_fo rm.[self.window.nam e].value = x;
(or whatever the syntax is correct)

please advise....
