Default getting set cookie value from a script

I have a dropdown menu that is populated by an external file.

I want to place what the user selects in my cookie.
My cookie works great for the user_name and user_phone...but I can't get it to work with my ad_code...the cookie does not save that information...when I call for the info from the cookie this part is blank. What have I done wrong?

<head>
<script language="JavaScript">
function setCookie() {
  var expiresDate = new Date();
  expiresDate.setFullYear(expiresDate.getFullYear() + 1);
  document.cookie = encodeURI("user_name="
    + document.twork.proc_by.value) + "; expires="
    + expiresDate.toUTCString();
  document.cookie = encodeURI("user_phone="
    + document.twork.procphone.value) + "; expires="
    + expiresDate.toUTCString();
  document.cookie = encodeURI("ad"
    + document.twork.ad_code.options[document.twork.ad_code.selectedIndex].value) + "; expires="
    + expiresDate.toUTCString();
}
</script>
</head>

<body>
<script language="JavaScript">
     document.write("<select name=\"ad_code\" id=\"ad_code\" size=\"1\" class=\"regSoft\" onBlur=\"doSetAd()\">");
     for(i=0; i<divCodes.length; i++){
      document.write("<option>");
      document.write(divCodes[i]);
      document.write("</option>");
     }
     document.write("</select>");
</body>

Default

Your select box doesn't have values in the option tags, only text so change this line:
Code:
document.twork.ad_code.options[document.twork.ad_code.selectedIndex].value
to
Code:
document.twork.ad_code.options[document.twork.ad_code.selectedIndex].text
OR
change:
Code:
document.write("<option>");
document.write(divCodes[i]);
document.write("</option>");
to
Code:
document.write("<option value=\"" + divCodes[i] + "\">");
document.write(divCodes[i]);
document.write("</option>");
