I have VB web app. I would like to have hyperlink on page that opens a separate page and after separate page is closed the first page is there. Hope that makes sense. Example: My page is used to schedule orders. The hyperlink will show a page with orders already scheduled. Both pages will be open at the same time.

    you can set the target property to 'new' and that will cause it to open in a new window.

    PS - Let me just add one thing...

    'new' could be anything really as long as it is NOT the name of a frame in a frameset. If you use the name of a frame in a frameset then it will cause the page to be displayed in that frame and not in a new window.

    e.g. a page with two frames named frame1 and frame2,

    Target=Frame1 will put the page in frame 1
    Target=Frame2 will put the page in frame 2
    Target=BOB will open the page in a new window

    Just thought i'd clarify for completeness sake calling the target new was just an example!
