Loosing frame name back from CGI?

Hello,
I have a screen with 4 frames. Main frame I call 'pp'. And 2 frames are the navigation bars (names: 'bot','pop'). When I call any page from navigation popup menues (javascript) that are targeted to 'pp', it performs well. When I call a CGI script from a <A HREF=> from 'pp' page (Which is targeted or not to 'pp'), or from the navigation buttons (targeted to 'pp' through javascript popup menu), CGI executes well at 'pp' frame. When, then, I want to go to another page and use the navigation bars, selecting an item of the popup menu which is targeted to 'pp' (which had worked well until I call cgi script) apears an error message like "Window.pp has no property named 'location'". It sounds like 'pp' frame name had been forgotten. I tried to target inside CGI all links to 'pp' but is the same thing.
Could you help me, please?
Thank you for your time.

Would you show a bit of code? at least the portion that does not seems to work.
In instance, i'm wandering what the "Window" reference actually is.

You could see the problem at:
http://www.milenium-bariloche.com

At this index page, you click enter and if you have netscape you will go to the page with frames. There, try to move with popup menues... it performs well with main frame ('pp'). Then try to go to calendar events. You could do so browsing at the popup with:
LEFT='INFORMACION' RIGHT='EVENTOS'
Then try to go to another page with the popup and there is the error message...

The page given back by calendar.cgi has a Javascript script into it, in the HEAD part.
The very first line of that script tells:

window.name = "Millenium_Organizador";

So, after the page loads, a "pp" frame does not exist anymore, since it has a new name: "Millenium_Organizador".

There seems to be no reason for that line, so - if you have access to the cgi code - just get rid of it.

If you cannot access your cgi, i can give you this modified changePage() for the z00N-pop.html page:

--//--
function changePage()
{
  menuNum = document.SelectMenu.SelePrim.selectedIndex;
  if (menuNum == null){alert("Por favor, elija una categoria del menu");return;}
  else
  {
    j = document.SelectMenu.SeleSec.selectedIndex;

    /* the check to be inserted */
    if(!parent.pp) parent.frames["Millenium_Organizador"].name = "pp";

    parent.pp.location.href = url[j];
    location.reload('self');
  }
}
--//--

HTH.

Yes, but you forgot to grade the question, so i've just got an autograde (C).
Should i put you on my banned users list, or is it just a misunderstanding?
