Strict vbScript redirect method (no asp)

How can you do a redirect with vbScript without using the response object in ASP?  Here is the code...

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE=vbScript>
sub deleteBtn_OnClick()
     lngControl = MsgBox("Are you sure you want to delete this order?",vbOKCANCEL,"WARNING! YOU ARE ABOUT TO DELETE!")

     If lngControl = vbOk THEN
          response.redirect "orders.asp?action=delete&ID=" & currentID
     End If
End sub
</SCRIPT>

Obviously the redirect doesn't work because it's not in asp, but just vbScript... I realize it's a little wierd to post a non asp question in the asp area, but I figured the people here would know more about vbScript...

Thanks!

I assume currentID is declared somewhere.

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE=vbScript>
sub deleteBtn_OnClick()
    lngControl = MsgBox("Are you sure you want to delete this order?",vbOKCANCEL,"WARNING! YOU ARE ABOUT TO DELETE!")

    If lngControl = vbOk THEN
         document.location = "orders.asp?action=delete&ID=" & currentID
    End If
End sub
</SCRIPT>


Note the danger of using VBScript at client side scripting language because it works only on IE and not on Netscape.
