hi..
thanks for the reply..
but i forgot to mention that..this page where the button sits is in a child frame. i need to load the new page in the top most frame of the browser window.
Is the method still applicable to this scenario?

In that case use: top.location.href='yourpage.html' as far as I remember that is the right syntax....but there are several other possibilities...
