Sorry I dont know much things about CS but ur code is working well in HTML (that I tried). The problem may be in ur code is in this line

[HTML]lnkHold.Attributes.Add("onclick", "javascript:copyText('Procedure Id-" + lblProcedureID.Text + [/HTML]

Before the Procedure Id- there was a single quotes but it was not ended. Just check it out

In your c# you are passing these 3 items into your string
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. lblProcedureID.Text
  2. ProcedureTitle.Text
  3. ProcedureDesc.Value
... as far as I can tell you aren't validating these items so let me put this in context..

lets say lblProcedureID = 13, ProcedureTitle = "bob's palace", ProecureDesc = "this is something"

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. lnkHold.Attributes.Add("onclick", "javascript:copyText('Procedure Id-13 Proceudre Title-bob's palace Procedure Description-this is something');");  
now lets see the problem
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Javascript interprets
  2. String1: 'Procedure Id-13 Procedure Title-bob'
  3. Unterminated String: s palace Procedure Description-this is something'
as you can see the string starts and ends before everything is executed.

This is how I imagine you are coming up with this error.

yes the problem is with the procedure description only.either due to length or due to special character. i will trace it out
Thanks everyone for help
