focus()

I have written a function that checks the format of the text entered into a
form field. The function is called by an onBlur() event and checks the
format of the script which, if it is incorrect calls a second function to
display an alert() message. Both functions end with a return statement.

My problem is that the cursor returns to the following form field, and not
the one that I have just checked. I assume this is because my function is
called on a "onBlur()" event and so the return will send the cursor/script
to the next item, my next form field.

Is there a way of placing the focus to the field that I want?

Thanks

document.FormName.FieldName.focus();
