I have a query string and when i click a button, that query string should be passed as a URL for the next page in the same window... Using ......

Window.Location.href="asp1.asp?Title=<% =Request.QueryString("xyz") %>

This is an example of how i tried for a Title field from a database.

the error i encountered was "Unterminated String Constant"...

The eror code is 1033. I hope iam correct...If anyone can help me sure do mail me soon........

You have href="....
then you have another double-quoted string within it ("xyz"), and you don't have the terminating double-quote for the href attribute.

You need to escape the double-quotes in the QueryString("xyz") call, or use single-quotes there. And you need to add the closing double-quote.
Example using single-quote inside double-quotes (assuming single-quotes are legal in your ASP):
Window.Location.href="asp1.asp?Title=<% =Request.QueryString('xyz') %>"

Oops. Forget a closing quote :(
Window.Location.href="asp1.asp?Title=<% =Server.URLEncode(Request.QueryString("xyz")) %>";

and to make it valid javascript you need to lowercase it and href is not needed to SET the url:
window.location="asp1.asp?Title=<% =Server.URLEncode(Request.QueryString("xyz")) %>";
