I have a table with 16 columns. I would like scroll across the table but would like the first 3 rows to remain in position.

P.S. The data for the tables are retieved from a database

On another note is it possible to pass a variable in the address to a frame.

to pass a variable from the address, or querystring, to a frame inside the page, you can just relay the code through your frameset page.  For example,  you might call up your page with frames like this:

http://www.hello.com/thepage.asp?variable=xxx

where thepage.asp contains your frameset.  Then, within thepage.asp, include code like this when specifying the asp pages within the frames:

<frameset cols="180,*">
    <frame noresize name="LeftMenu" target="Main" src="LeftMenu.asp">

    <frame name="Main" src="home.asp?variable=<%=request.querystring("variable")%>" target="_self" marginwidth="5" marginheight="5" scrolling="auto">

Notice the snippet of ASP in the second frame declaration that passes on the code from the first URL.

good luck!

well it is all pretty straightfoward except for the second div..


    <div class="maindiv" STYLE="overflow-X:hidden;overflow-y:scroll;width:496;height:300;">


in which the "overflow-y" so that is overflow on the y axis, which is verticle, is going to be set to "scroll"

as you want to scroll across the table, you would want the x axis to be scrollable...


    <div class="maindiv" STYLE="overflow-X:hidden;overflow-x:scroll;width:496;height:300;">



you can change the width and height to be whatever you need....

all the other code should be pretty straightfoward?  it's just tables...

let me know if it is not...
