Scripting issue in SP3 (Populating values in field of a hided tab)

Hi Experts , I have a issue while scripting when we hide a tab and we would like to populate a value to the field in hided tab , how do we do it? Basically my issue is to populate a value in to one field in hided tab when we are in other tabs . How do we script it. Example : On main screen i have custom field which has a date value and i would like to populate this date field in Basic start date of work order/notification where the tab for this Basic start date is hided . My issue is that i am getting an error saying that screen element could not be found and its understandable that it was hided and we can not see the screen field hence this issue . But how can we achieve this ? Please comment . Best regards, pradeep.

    I think instead of marking the tab as hidden, you could have an onLoad script that first populates the field then hides the tab...
