Default .js outside script problems

hi all,

the code below has an error message and it says that the code in bold is null or not an object, now this code is within a .js file and calls those variables from a html page outside of the .js file:

var firstname = document.recruit.firstname.value;
var age = document.recruit.age.value;
var timeplayingcss = document.recruit.timecss.value;
function validateform(){
    if (firstname == "" || firstname == null && age <= "18" ||age == "" || age == null && timeplayingcss == "" || timeplayingcss == null) {
        alert("Excuse me " + document.recruit.firstname.value + " but you've left a few fields blank");
    window.open("validated.html","","width=200,height= 200");

function close_bringup(){
    var name = document.recruit.firstname.value;

thanks to anyone who can help

Do you have a form on your page with the name "recruit"? E.g. <form name="recruit" ... > ?
