I'm trying to get the following code to activate and deactivate one form field by using one button.
Activating the field works. De-activating it is not.

It seems so obvious that I must be missing something. What happens if you try this?

I've tried that; didn't work.
The field becomes active but will not de-activate when a user pushes the button again.

Do you need the Department variable? What if you just negate the disabled condition?
document.form1.Department.disabled = !document.form1.Department.disabled;

That's got it.

Just to explain what happened here:
you were using the assignment operator and not the comparison operator:
Department="disabled" vs Department=="disabled"
because of this, Department was always "disabled", hence your behavior.
