mnb93,

Does the page have a named anchor?  If so you can try ...

parent.window.location.href="#name";

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.

mnb93,

If that is the answer then you should not have closed this by accepting my comment, even with a C grade.  I will post to Community Support and ask them to correct this.  They can refund your points and either close it by accepting the answer you posted or delete the question.  Let me know if you have any questions.

OK, I can respect that.  The C grade made me think I wasn't any help.  I'm glad that I was able to help you and the problem is fixed.  Thanks for the fun question.
