For this usually a hash sign is used:
<a href="#">Top of Page</a>

Any element with an id can be targeted with
<a href="#someid">Go to ID</a>

There are a whole range of effects using targets

You can add target id's to your page, making it possible to link to different sections, or have it done automatically: http://www.kryogenix.org/code/browser/generated-toc/

Hmm, not sure how my solution helped you in that case. I assume you just made sure the "#someid" was included in the action url or redirected url from that action page.
