Default datagrid, innertext, javascript, database update

I have a .aspx page that contains some javascript so that
when a user presses a checkbox another cell in the datagrid is filled with the current date . That works fine

My probelm.... when I have the user press the update button (which does a
post back that loops through the datagrid and updates a database) the
field/cell that is filled by the javascript appears to be blank in my update
code, even though I can see it on the screen.
This is very urgent. Any help is appreciated.

 <script type="text/javascript">
function getCurrentDateTime(chk, chkId)
var checkbox = chk
var lstIndx = chkId.lastIndexOf('chkComplete')
var spanId = chkId.substr(0,lstIndx) + 'lblDate';
var spanText = document.getElementById(spanId);

if (checkbox.checked == true)
var currentDate = new Date()
var crDT = currentDate.getDate()+ "/" + currentDate.getMonth() + "/" + currentDate.getFullYear() ;


My datagrid is as follows:

<asp:DataGrid ID="dgCycleCheckList" runat="server" Visible="true" AutoGenerateColumns="false" DataKeyField="Cycle_Checklist_id_pk">
<asp:TemplateColumn HeaderText="Completed" HeaderStyle-
<input type="checkbox" id="chkComplete" runat="server"
checked='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Completed") %>'
onclick ="getCurrentDateTime(this,this.id)" />

<asp:TemplateColumn HeaderText="Date Completed"
<asp:Label ID="lblDate" runat="server"
Text='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "DateCompleted") %
<asp:BoundColumn DataField="Cycle_Checklist_id_pk" Visible="false" HeaderStyle-HorizontalAlign="Center"></asp:BoundColumn>

So does it work if you hand type a date into the date field within the datagrid? Can you see the value go into the SQL statement when you debug?
