What is the correct syntax for passing variables in a href tag when the href is outside of the javascript tags? I believe it is not recognizing the href because it is not reading the variables: boxid & projectname. Please advise.

<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">

var linkURL = '';
var boxid = '';
var changeLinkURL = '';


function getUrlVars()
{
var vars = [], boxid;
var parts = window.location.href.replace(/[?&]+([^=&]+)=([^&]*)/gi, function(m,key,value) {
vars[key] = value;
});
return vars;
}

function PassQueryString()
{
boxid = getUrlVars()["boxid"];
projectName = getUrlVars()["project"];
alert("ParseQueryString - BoxID :" + boxid);
alert("ParseQueryString - ProjectName :" + projectName);

}
function changeLinkURL()
{
boxid = getUrlVars()["boxid"];
projectName = getUrlVars()["project"];
linkURL = "C:\Users\Geri\Desktop\test_1.htm + "?boxid=" + boxid + "&projectName=" + projectName";
}
function Project(pname)
{
location.href=menuURL[pname];
}


</script>


<script type="text/javascript">
var first = getUrlVars()["boxid"];
var second = getUrlVars()["project"];
alert("back button : " + "" + first);
alert("back button : " + "" + second);
</script>



<a href="C:\Users\Geri\Desktop\test_1.htm?boxid=DBB&amp;project=projectName">


<IMG style="BORDER-BOTTOM: 0px solid;
BORDER-LEFT: 0px solid; BORDER-TOP: 0px solid; BORDER-RIGHT: 0px solid" border=0
alt="Back Button" src="C:\Users\Geri\Desktop\test_1.htm/Back%20Button/back_button1.gif">
</A></P>
