Hyperlink emulate Back Button

Hi, I am very new to ASP so apologies if this is very basic but any help to solve my problem would be very much appreciated.

I have a hyperlink that I want to act like the IE Back button, simply to go back one page.

Looking through Experts Exchange I think I need to use the following code

<a href="javascript:history.go(-1)"> back</a>

however, as I am programming in VB.Net I am unsure of where to put this in the ASP Code.

My hyperlink is currently in a table and the associated ASP code at the moment is

<tr>
        <td style="width: 100px">
            <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" runat="server" ForeColor="Red"
                Style="left: 8px; position: relative; top: 0px" Visible="False" Width="627px" >No Forthcoming Appointments Found</asp:HyperLink></td>
               
 </tr>
   
Can someone please help me by showing me how to make this hyperlink act like the Back button.

Thanks
...Steve

Hi swtiley,

You have two choices, you can either replace the asp:Hyperlink with a non server-control (<a href="....">Text</a>) or assign an onclick event programatically in page_load:

HyperLink1.Attributes.Add("OnClick","javascript:history.go(-1);")
