The formula is correct, but if you want to open the database using it's default frameset, specify _parent as the target.

I usually create a page containing a Link Hotspot set as :
Type: URL
Value : /abc/test.nsf?logout
Target : _parent

This will open the database /abc.test.nsf, logout the user and make sure the database is opened in the current window, but using it's own frameset. (I'm supposing you have a launch-option set for this database to use it's own frameset).

if i gave the formula
/abc/test.nsf?logout will this work?
i have a small doubt that
if first user logsout by the above command and second user is checking his mail or calender anything will he face anyproblem of the above command.why because here we gave the command logout from the database will it close the session for the second user also.

The ?logout at the end of the URL will only terminate the current user session. (=the session in the open browser window).
If a second user has authenticated in another browser session, this user will remain active.

I'm looking into the modifications and will send you back the modified db.

How about appending a redirect at the end of your logout command? For example:

/dbname.nsf/ThisForm?Logout&RedirectTo=/parentdbname.nsf
