Without knowing the line that triggers the error, I can't say for sure what the problem is, but I'd recommend creating the textRange *after* you fill the field.

Also, you should call select on oRange, not on the field itself.

function populaterep() {

var theform = document.getElementById("frmdefault");
var oRange = theform.repid_number.createTextRange();

if (theform.office_code.value!="")
theform.repid_number.value = theform.office_code.value;

oRange.moveStart("character", 4);
