Target _parent not working in form


<a href="searchTest1.cfm" target="_blank">search</a>


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

Problem: The form should open up in test.cfm when you hit submit....but it doesn't.  Any help is appreciated.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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">
