Hi.....
I have a web page that uses frames, all is ok at the start, but when I target
another page into it, the scrollbars disapear.
Why?
The New page has more than enough data to cause scrolling.
scrolling=yes
in the calling frameset.
regards

The default is to for scrolling to be on so you don't even need to add scrolling=yes.  Is it possible that in the calling framset your are putting the attribute in for the wrong frame and that the frame that you want to scroll has scrolling=no in it?

Here is an example of a framseset page where only the main frame should scroll:

<frameset rows="64,*">
  <frame name="banner" scrolling="no" noresize target="contents" src="banner.html">
  <frameset cols="150,*">
    <frame name="contents" scrolling="no" src="contents.html" target="main">
    <frame name="main" src="main.html">

Get rid of the scrolling=yes settings alrogether.
They are not needed and in fact are not good programming.

If the user's screens needs scrollbars they will automatically
be added if you dont even include the setting and will be
taken away if they are not.

Adding the scroll setting will confuse some browsers, especially
netscape so leave them out all together.  Sometimes a browser
wont recognize them so even if you changed and said scrolling=yes
it will ignore it.  

That should solve your problem.
