cannot EDIT validation without causing error

cannot EDIT validation without causing error

So I have some validation on a page. specifically the checkout page in ecart.

so its working fine.
but i have 1 field that is a select menu and I want to add that as a required item.

when i go to the validation tool to edit, I get 2 kinds of errors.
1. if i go to edit and dont add any new validation, then when i hit finish - it rewrites the code except refers to every validation rule to one field. (it changes them all to the email field).

i also tried editing and adding the new field to the validation and i get the same error. I just tested it without adding new validation to see if it was the new rule or not.

2. I created a test page with a select field on it and added validation. worked fine. so i copied that code over to my current working checkout page (current unedited validation works). adding the 1 line of code caused the form to not validate at all. and I did put it in the correct place. Unless there is a sequences where selects has to go for validation.


HERES THE LINE I ADDED (just before the alert errors code)
WAValidateRQ(document.forms[0].order_hear,'- Agree to terms is required',document.forms[0].order_hear,0,true,'select');

onsubmit="WAValidateCC(document.forms[0].cc_number,document.forms[0].cc_number.value,'- Invalid credit card number','','4:51:52:53:54:55:34:37:',document.forms[0].cc_number,0,true);WAValidateEL(document.forms[0].cc_number,document.forms[0].cc_number.value,'- Invalid number of characters in Card Number',12,20,'',document.forms[0].cc_number,0,true);WAValidateNM(document.forms[0].cvv,'- Invalid Security Code.',0,9999,0,'','',',.',document.forms[0].cvv,0,true);WAValidateEL(document.forms[0].cvv,document.forms[0].cvv.value,'- Invalid number of characters in Security Code',3,4,'',document.forms[0].cvv,0,true);WAValidateEM(document.forms[0].email,document.forms[0].email.value,'- Invalid Email Address',document.forms[0].email,0,true);WAValidateEL(document.forms[0].firstname,document.forms[0].firstname.value,'- Invalid First name',2,50,'',document.forms[0].firstname,0,true);WAValidateEL(document.forms[0].lastname,document.forms[0].lastname.value,'- Invalid Last name',2,50,'',document.forms[0].lastname,0,true);WAValidateEL(document.forms[0].phone,document.forms[0].phone.value,'- Invalid Phone Number',2,50,'',document.forms[0].phone,0,true);WAValidateEL(document.forms[0].street1,document.forms[0].street1.value,'- Invalid Street Address',2,100,'',document.forms[0].street1,0,true);WAValidateEL(document.forms[0].city,document.forms[0].city.value,'- Invalid City',2,100,'',document.forms[0].city,0,true);WAValidateEL(document.forms[0].postcode,document.forms[0].postcode.value,'- Invalid Zip/Postal Code',2,20,'',document.forms[0].postcode,0,true);WAValidateEL(document.forms[0].shipping_firstname,document.forms[0].shipping_firstname.value,'- Invalid Shipping Information, First name',2,100,'',document.forms[0].shipping_firstname,0,true);WAValidateEL(document.forms[0].shipping_lastname,document.forms[0].shipping_lastname.value,'- Invalid Shipping Information, Last name',2,100,'',document.forms[0].shipping_lastname,0,true);WAValidateEL(document.forms[0].shipping_phone,document.forms[0].shipping_phone.value,'- Invalid Shipping Information, Phone',2,100,'',document.forms[0].shipping_phone,0,true);WAValidateEL(document.forms[0].shipping_street1,document.forms[0].shipping_street1.value,'- Invalid Shipping Information, Street Address',2,100,'',document.forms[0].shipping_street1,0,true);WAValidateEL(document.forms[0].shipping_city,document.forms[0].shipping_city.value,'- Invalid Shipping Information, City',2,100,'',document.forms[0].shipping_city,0,true);WAValidateEL(document.forms[0].shipping_postcode,document.forms[0].shipping_postcode.value,'- Invalid Shipping Information, Zip/Postal Code',2,20,'',document.forms[0].shipping_postcode,0,true);WAValidateRQ(document.forms[0].order_terms,'- Agree to terms is required',document.forms[0].order_terms,0,true,'checkbox');WAAlertErrors('The following errors were found:','',true,false,false);return document.MM_returnValue"
