passing value of javascript var in href

P: 1
What I am trying to do is pass the value of a javascript variable as paramter in the href tag. below.. It seems that it should be possible but i can't see to get the right syntax... Any help would be appreciated.

[HTML]<a href="reports_Info_xl.cfm?term=javascript:thisTerm " target="_blank">Data (Excel Spreadsheet)</a>[/HTML]

If thisTerm does not change after page load, just use document.write():
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. document.write("<a href=\"reports_Info_xl.cfm?term="+ thisTerm + "target=\"_blank\">Data (Excel Spreadsheet)</a>");
If it does change, then give the anchor an id and change its href property dynamically:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. document.getElementById("anchorID").href = "reports_Info_xl.cfm?term=" + thisTerm;
