here is how my program work: I have a form in active frame. When user hits a submit button, javascript will call a cgi and submit to a hidden frame. The cgi then uses the hidden frame to update selection boxes in the active frame. The problem comes in when it updates the selection box, if the size entry is too big, it will over lap the next column in the table. If I can make the javascript to repaint the table,or the active frame, then this problem will be solved.

Can you help?

Thanks.

Could you post up your html files, or let us know the url where we can view it. Also, did you know that you can use JS to update the Form information, and not use a CGI, and so saving download/server time/resources?
Anyway I need more detailed information to help you on this one...
