I have a page that has 4 frames. Frame 1 is called for example Page1 and it has all my variables defined like so:
<script>
      var Variable1;
      var Variable2;
</script>

Now in Frame 4 I have a page that I want to update Variable1 in Frame1 and this is the code I have:

parent.Frame1.Variable1 = true;

But as I move through my application and Frame 4 is being updated I receive this javascript error:

Error:Permission Denied

I tried this and got this error:
parent.Frame1.document.Variable1 = true;
Error:Access is Denied

Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this error?
Thanks in Advance
