I'm not sure why that doesn't work, but you could try this:

<form action="records.cfm" method="post"
   onsubmit='if("")"theParent";;return true;'>
you can in the target window write:


and then in the form:

<form action="records.cfm" method="post" target="somename">
<input type="submit" value="Search">
