Vbscript event handling with frames & document.write

I have a HTLM page using frames.     In one frame, I have some VBSCRIPT that has a form, and in response to user input on the form, triggers an event handler script.      The event handler uses document.write    to write a new page.       Everything works perfectly (so far).       [The pages I am referring to are not ASP, just HTML]

The issue is that I would like to have the form in frames(1), and have a new page produced in response to the form (as currently), BUT I would like the resulting page that gets written to be displayed in frames(2).

I have tried lots of variations on the syntax (such as parent.frames(2).write ... )   but I haven't been able to make this work.       Another technique I tried was to write the event handler onto a page in frames(2), hoping it would detect the event produced in frames(1).

I can't believe it isn't possible to do this, but I can't seem to figure out a way.      Can someone please advise me?   thanks!

To write in your frame 2, use: parent.frames["frame2"].document.write("Hello World"), where "frame2" is the name of your frame.
