I have the following 2 pieces of code :

<a href="scriptcode1:Browser(&quot;Browser&quot;,&quot;<SrcDir>\folder1\page1.htm&quot;)"><img id="Button1" class="inputImage" src="../button22-up.jpg" onmouseover="doRollOver(this);" onmouseout="doRollOut(this);" onmouseup="doClick(this);" onmousedown="doClick(this, true);" ondragstart="return false" onselectstart="return false">
</a>

and

<a href="scriptcode1:RunScript(&quot;s1&quot;)">

I need to run both at the same time so i need to fit the above (runscript) code into the one at the top (which works )

The way to open TWO LINKS AT ONCE (which is what I presume you are asking) is to follow this --

<a href="link1.htm" target="_blank" onclick="window.open(this.href,'one','');window.open('link2.html','two','');return false;">open 2 links</A>

You will have to adapt that to your needs, but the logic is simple --

The first is a link which when clicked opens a page in a new window.  The onClick() handler opens the second link in the original window, and by returning false, does not stop the main link opening.

Adapt that, and you are rolling.

You could include the second script in the first script... like the following:

<a href="scriptcode1:Browser(&quot;Browser&quot;,&quot;<SrcDir>\folder1\page1.htm&quot;);scriptcode1:RunScript(&quot;s1&quot;)"><img id="Button1" class="inputImage" src="../button22-up.jpg" onmouseover="doRollOver(this);" onmouseout="doRollOut(this);" onmouseup="doClick(this);" onmousedown="doClick(this, true);" ondragstart="return false" onselectstart="return false">
</a>

Hope that works
