hi:

I am using vbscript/asp to design a frameset. I divided the page into two frames. One is above and one is at the bottom. But when I use parent.frame1.form1.textfield.value=frame2.form2.textfield2.value. It will give me error like: object required "parent". I changed parent to top, it still gives me error. Please help me figure out the problem. Thanks.

I am assuming you are calling this from frame2 since you didn't put "parent" in front of frame2.  If this is the case, you dont need "frame2" either, because the code you are running is already sitting in that frame.  This should do the trick:

parent.frame1.form1.textfield.value=form2.textfield2.value

If the same problem persist, try posting your code so we can have a look at the problem.

i think that it should be:

document.parent.frame1.form1.textfield.value=frame2.form2.textfield2.value

Still has errors.

My Html page looks like:

<html>
<frameset rows="90%,*" framespacing="0">
      <frame name="Frame1" src=" ppsa.asp" scrolling="auto">
      <frame name="Frame2" src="setsession.asp">
</frameset>
</html>

 
The error occurs in setsession.asp page:

<%@language="VBScript"%>
<%
     
            dim l
            l=Request.QueryString("flag")
            top.document.Frame1.ppsa_combiform.db_firstname.value=l
%>

I found out the reason anyways. I am new to vbscript. There are some errors I don't notice. But all your suggestions help me a lot in finding the correct method.
