I added a javascript static resource to a folder called VisualForceElements like so:

enter image description here

Then within my opening <apex:page> I make the call to reference the resource like so:

<apex:includeScript value="{!$Resource.LookupJS}"/>

But unfortunately I keep getting this error:

Error: Static Resource named LookupJS does not exist. Check spelling

I tried also including the folder name like so:

<apex:includeScript value="{!$Resource.VisualForceElementsLookupJS}"/>

but that didn't work either. Any thoughts or suggestions?

    Document is not the same thing as Static Resource.

    Sorry, that was my bad. Long day? Perhaps someone else new to SF will make the same stupid mistake. Sep 29, 2015 at 16:27

You want to upload it as a Static Resource under Setup -> Develop -> Static Resources. You're inserting it as a Document object currently :)
