this is what I put:
  <script>
  window.opener.location.href='calendar.cfm?Qdate=#dateformat(form.appdate, 'mm/dd/yyyy')#';
  window.close();
  </script>

You need to surround it with <cfoutput> tags

<script type="text/javascript">
      <cfoutput>
      opener.location.href='calendar.cfm?Qdate=#dateformat(form.appdate, 'mm/dd/yyyy')#';
      window.close();
      </cfoutput>
</script>

> i was using refresh, but it gives that retry error.

What syntax were you using..  reload()?

Reload is fine.  But I don't know what "that retry error" is.  That's why I wanted to see the syntax you used.
