I have this code and all I get is an error not sure how to fix.

I have the folloowing script on the <head>
<script type="text/javascript">
<!-- // ONW = Open New Window
function ONW(url, name, bits) {
newWin=window.open(url, name, bits);
newWin.focus();
}
// -->
</script>

Then on <body>

<form action="<a href='javascript:ONW('pPrintSample.php' id='PrintSample' method='post' onsubmit='return confirm('Are you sure you want to coninue?')','PrintWindow', 'width=900,height=600,left=30,top=30,location=no,menubar=no,resizable=no,status=no,scrollbars=no,toolbar=no')'></a>">

I need two things display the alert Are you sure... and if the press OK then open the page on a new window"

Thanks

It works by it self, beside the name is PrintWindow the bits are the on/off for the rest of the parameters. But thanks it made me look twice, I do appriciate.

You meant maybe:
<form action="" id="PrintSample" method="post" onsubmit="return confirm('Are you sure you want to coninue?'); ">
 
<a href='javascript:ONW('pPrintSample.php', 'PrintWindow', 'width=900,height=600,left=30,top=30,location=no,menubar=no,resizable=no,status=no,scrollbars=no,toolbar=no')">Click Here</a>

Corrected syntax.

Before your form was mixed in your action parameter.

are you submitting to form anywhere; what page?
<form action="" id="PrintSample" method="post" onsubmit="return confirm('Are you sure you want to coninue?'); ">
 
<a href='javascript:ONW('pPrintSample.php', 'PrintWindow', 'width=900,height=600,left=30,top=30,location=no,menubar=no,resizable=no,status=no,scrollbars=no,toolbar=no');">Click Here</a>

<form action="" id="PrintSample" method="post" onsubmit="return confirm('Are you sure you want to coninue?'); ">
