Java Script issue - referencing record type

Java Script issue - referencing record type
I am following up after a consultant that used JavaScript to direct users to 1 of 2 record types from an Account Related List. I have added a 3rd record type, and am trying to create a button that references the JavaScript. Here is the code that I am working with:

var opportunity = new sforce.SObject('Opportunity'); 

opportunity.Name = 'Do Not Delete'; 
opportunity.AccountId = '{!Account.Id}'; 
opportunity.RecordTypeId = '{!$Setup.Opportunity_Record_Type_Ids__c.Record_Type_3__c}';
opportunity.StageName = 'Quote in Progress'; 

var closeDate = new Date('{!TODAY()}'); 
opportunity.CloseDate = closeDate; 

var result = sforce.connection.create([opportunity]); 

if(result[0].success == 'true'){ 
var serverPrefix = '{!$Setup.Server_Prefix__c.Server_Prefix__c}'; 
var oppId = result[0].id; 
parent.window.location.href = 'https://' + serverPrefix + '' + oppId; 

alert('Record creation failed - please notify system administrator'); 

The bold, italicized area is where the error is. The error message is:
<span class="errorStyle">Error: Field Record_Type_3__c does not exist. Check spelling.</span>

Record Type 3 does exist, and the spelling is correct. Is there someplace else that I need to define the "Record_Type_3" field? Thanks.

Yes you must define it under SETUP-->Custom Settings-->Opportunity Record Type Ids 

Your consultant  has created custom settings to maintain all recordtypes under opportunity and  $Setup provides access to retrive Custom Setting

I hope you find the above solution helpful. If it does mark as best answer to help others too.

This one has been solved, but there is no Best Answer option. Not sure why.
