I open an asp file by clicking on a menu choice, when I do so, the file opens in a Frame.  Is it possible to have the asp file open in a DIV in the frame instead of the entire frAMe?
Thanks in advance

I don't think it is possible, because DIV is used on the Client side while an ASP page has to be processed on the server and has to be send back as HTML to to client.

For Netscape you can using
document.layers["layername"].load("url", 500);

for IE you'll have to tweak. You'll have to create a hidden iframe and after done loading you copy the contents into the DIV

<iframe id="if1" name="if1" style="visibility:hidden;"></iframe>
<div id="mydiv" style="position:absolute;top:100px;left:100px;width:100px;height:200px;"></div>

Following script will load a page:
function loadit(sURL)
{
   if(document.layers) document.layers["mydiv"].load(sURL, 500);
   else
   {
      document.if1.location = sURL;
   }
}

In the url that you load you put:
function document_onload()
{
   if(document.layers) return;
   top.document.mydiv.innerHTML = document.body.innerHTML;
}
window.onload=document_onload;

That should do the trick.

Hello CJ
I get the asp page displaying in the iframe ok, but thereafter I seem to have a problem.  When you say: "In the url that you load you put:..." do you mean that I include that function in the asp file?

kcm76,
