Hi there:
I have a problem with a web pages.

When it is pusshed I would like to move the right document (can be any of the content documents) to the named anchor #information

Any help?

Assuming that you name the left document Menu and the right one Contents. Then you can add some JavaScript code behind the button that changes the href of the Contents frame.

Your button would be coded something like:
  <input type=button name=moveContents value="Get Information" onClick="MoveContent()">

and your JavaScript could be hardcoded to something like:
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
<!--
function MoveContent()
{
  parent.Contents.location.href = "http://www.contents.htm#newlocation"
}
//-->
</SCRIPT>

Note that if you simply wanted to change the #newlocation part, you can do something like:
  var cloc = parent.Contents.location; // for shorthand
  cloc.href = cloc.protocol + "//" + cloc.hostname + "/" + URL.pathname + "#newlocation";
