Frames not displaying correctly

I have this:

<frameset rows="*,*,*">
      <frame name="top" src="header.asp">
      <frameset cols="300,300">
            <frame name="left" src="addprod.asp" noresize><frame name="right" src="addprod.asp" noresize>
      </frameset>
      <frame name="bottom" src="footer.asp">
</frameset>


addprod.asp is just a small table with a form inside.

My problem is that no matter what I set the "cols" to, both columns take up 100% the width of my browser.  Both my header and footer are 639 pixels wide.  I need the two columns in the middle to be a fixed size to match the header and footer.

If I understood you correctly, you want to make the two smaller frames exactly 300 pixels. Add a third - empty one (maybe between the two).

My header and footer are tables that are centered horizontally in the page and I was trying to make the two frames center with the header and footer on the page.  Maybe that is not doable.
tsarevCommented:
If the 2 frames has to be 300 pixels, try:

<frameset rows="*,*,*">
     <frame name="top" src="header.asp">
     <frameset cols="*,300,*,300">
         <frame name="left" src="someblankfile.html" noresize><frame name="left" src="addprod.asp" noresize><frame name="left" src="someblankfile.html" noresize><frame name="right" src="addprod.asp" noresize>
     </frameset>
     <frame name="bottom" src="footer.asp">
</frameset>

oopppsss my mistake

     <frameset cols="*,300,300,*">
lpenrodAuthor Commented:
That made them each 300, but both frames are on the left side of the screen.

Here is my current code:
<frameset rows="169,*,*" frameborder="0">
      <frame name="top" src="header.asp">
      <frameset cols="*,300,300,*">
            <frame name="left" src="addprod.asp" noresize><frame name="right" src="addprod.asp" noresize>
      </frameset>
      <frame name="bottom" src="footer.asp">
</frameset>

On the left ??? Aren't they centered? What screen resolution are you using?

<frameset rows="*,*,*">
     <frame name="top" src="header.asp">
     <frameset cols="*,300,300,*">
         <frame name="left" src="someblankfile.html" noresize><frame name="left" src="addprod.asp" noresize><frame name="left" src="someblankfile.html" noresize><frame name="right" src="addprod.asp" noresize>
     </frameset>
     <frame name="bottom" src="footer.asp">
</frameset>

Yes, on the left.

Could it be something in my header or footer code that might be making it act that way?

I only had 2 <frame> tags, so it was just picking up the first two sizes * and 300.
