Do you mean submit a form in another frame?  You can do that with javascript:

<INPUT type='button' name='cmdSubmitFormInOtherFrame' value='Submit' onClick='top.nameoftheotherframe.nameoftheotherform.submit();'>

No.  I need to display a form in a frame.  

Still confusing.

Are you trying to display a form inside an inline frame or as part of a frameset?

Is your form part of another HTML document or is the whole document the form?

You need to clarify what you are trying to do.  What you have provided thus far is not enough information to provide a solution.

ok.  I am trying to display it as part of a frameset it is an .rpt file
In my experience, .rpt files are associated with reports generated by Crystal Reports.

So what you are really trying to do is to display a Crystal Report file within a frameset?

If that is the case, you will probably need to embed some sort of Crystal Reports viewer in your HTML document (the frame you want to display the report in).  Unless, of course, your report can be exported as an HTML file.

Most of what is dealt with in this particular forum concerns the creation and display of HTML files.

Until you can provide further details as to what you are doing, it will be impossible to provide a solution.


I am sending two html pages just save it into your machine and open it.I think that is what you want
