Javascript Validation - Verify there is a name entered in forms text box

P: 67

I have a form that i use ASP to process the form to my access database. It works well but I'm struggling to get the javascript validation to work. I have posted a small version of my form to see if any of you know why this isn't working. I believe this is supposed to have a box pop up to say "You must enter a first name." when you leave the text box blank. However, I get nothing. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated. Thanks - Jerry
