Default passing params on an href function call

Hi you all:

I am trying to invoke a function and pass a string parameter using an <a href=... element, but keep getting an error. Passing a number works ok. The parameter data would come from the hidden input field.
Is it a matter of syntax or it cannot be done?

Here is the code:

<META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
<META NAME="GENERATOR" Content="Microsoft Visual Studio">
<script language="JavaScript">
function anyFunc(vparam)
    var oTR=window.document.all.DDTable.insertRow();
    var oTD=oTR.insertCell();
<input type="hidden" name="hdnName" value="ABC">
<table cellspacing=1 cellpadding=1 width=300 border=1 id="DDTable" >
    <td><a href='javascript:anyFunc()'>Test data</a></td>

You don't appear to be passing any parameter in your code. When you pass a string, is it in quotes?
