try setting an ancor in a variable
and write this into your file where you want to go
<?php

$gohere = "<a name=\"#oldposition\">oldposition</a> ";
echo $gohere;
?>

and if you reload your page call it like this:

 yourpage.htm#oldposition

to jump to the ancor

You know that I can't use ancor because the page is created by javascript, i only can use javasscript method, for example, scroll and so on, can you help me?
How can I get the original scroll position ?

I found a strange method to solve my problem, it is ok if I used two times as below,
top.treeFrame.window.scrollTo(0, 0);
top.treeFrame.window.scrollTo(0, topY);

But if only one time is executed, it doesn't work, can you explain to me?
