I'm trying to make a conditional field visible or hidden based on the selected's the code:

var b = this.getField("PropLaneWidth");
var d = this.getField("DesLaneWidth");

var f = this.getField("ReduceNote1");
var g = this.getField("DeviationNote");

// Set the field to visible


if (b.value < d.value && b.value != "" && b.value != 0)
f.hidden = false;
if (b.value < d.value && b.value != "" && b.value != 0)
g.hidden = false;

//Set the field to Hidden

if (b.value >= d.value && b.value != "" && d.value != 0)
f.hidden = true;
if (b.value >= d.value && b.value != "" && d.value != 0)
g.hidden = true;

Basically there are two text fields; ReduceNote1 and DeviationNote. The above identical code is in both form fields. The ReduceNote1 field works flawlessly...the DeviationNote field does not. fields b and d are simple numerical fields. The former is an entered value, the latter a calculated value. Frankly it makes no sense to me...maybe someone out there has a clearer head than I do at this point.
Thanks for any creative ideas...
