Supose I have 4 frames like this:

<FRAMESET  FRAMEBORDER="0" BORDER="0" FRAMESPACING="0" rows="50,*">
 <FRAMESET COLS="36%,*" FRAMEBORDER=0 BORDER="0" FRAMESPACING="0">
  <FRAME NAME="headframeleft" SRC="header1.htm"  NORESIZE SCROLLING="no">
  <FRAME NAME="headframeright" SRC="header2.htm"  NORESIZE SCROLLING="no">
 </FRAMESET>
 <FRAMESET COLS="36%,*" FRAMEBORDER=0 BORDER="0" FRAMESPACING="0">
  <FRAME NAME="bodyframeleft" SRC="content.htm" MARGINWIDTH="2" MARGINHEIGHT="2">
  <FRAME NAME="bodyframeright" SRC="result.htm">
 </FRAMESET>
</FRAMESET>

In bodyframeleft I have several links that open a different page in bodyframeright, with the "TARGET=bodyframeright" tag

What I want to know is how I can open another page in headframeright when I click the link in bodyframeleft. That is, open two different pages in two frames at the same time.
Thanks...

You have two options:

1. use javascript:
=======================
<script>
function ChangeTwoFrames() {
  parent.frames['bodyframeright'].location = 'anotherpage1.htm';
  parent.frames['headframeright'].location = 'anotherpage2.htm';
}

</script>

<a href="Javascript:ChangeTwoFrames()"><clicke here</a>

===========

2. redefine your frames into 3 seperate html files
==================================================

frame 1:

<FRAMESET  FRAMEBORDER="0" BORDER="0" FRAMESPACING="0" rows="50,*">
      <FRAME NAME="headframe" SRC="headerframe.htm"  NORESIZE SCROLLING="no">
      <FRAME NAME="bodyframe" SRC="body.htm"  NORESIZE SCROLLING="no">
</FRAMESET>

frame 2:

<FRAMESET COLS="36%,*" FRAMEBORDER=0 BORDER="0" FRAMESPACING="0">
      <FRAME NAME="headframeleft" SRC="header1.htm"  NORESIZE SCROLLING="no">
      <FRAME NAME="headframeright" SRC="header2.htm"  NORESIZE SCROLLING="no">
</FRAMESET>

frame 3:

<FRAMESET COLS="36%,*" FRAMEBORDER=0 BORDER="0" FRAMESPACING="0">
      <FRAME NAME="bodyframeleft" SRC="content.htm" MARGINWIDTH="2" MARGINHEIGHT="2">
      <FRAME NAME="bodyframeright" SRC="result.htm">
</FRAMESET>


Now each frame has a name and each frameset has a name and you can refer to that with the "target" option:

<a href="anotherframeset.htm" target="bodyframe">
