I am using some common Javascript functions I wrote that are required in several pages. I would prefer to have the functions in a single .js file and link to this file from the required web pages. How do I link to such a file ? I tried the same method as linking to a Stylesheet file, but it is not working.

<Link Href="MainStyles.css" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css">

This is working fine

<LINK HREF="GenJS.js" type="text/javascript">

This is not working.

The contents of the GenJS.js file is

<SCRIPT Language="Javascript">

function Gablu()
	alert ("Hullo") ;


When I am trying to refer to the function Gablu(), I am getting the error 'Object Required'

Use the code given by stymiee; also, take the <SCRIPT Language="Javascript"> and </SCRIPT> tags out of the .js file... they are not needed in this case.


Plus you can safely do away with the language='javascript' attribute since Javascript is the default scripting engine for all browsers. Use this tag only when you are using two or more scripting languages. Eg. VBScript etc.
