to "open" a link in a new window, use the target keyword:
<center><p> <b> <i>To calculate a date <a target="_blank" href="http://tnex-x-psrf/cflow/query/assign_page.php">click here</a></i></b>.</p>

Open in new window

That opened it in a new tab...is there a way to open it in a new browser session (window)?

I don't think you can "force" a "new window" from the html code...
and I think, that should remain the user's "choice"?!
why do you want a new window? if it's for a new "session", you need to pass some info to the page to clear session information ...

Opening in a 'tab' or 'window' is a user choice on most browsers.  What do you mean by "new browser session"?  If you are wanting to open a new 'session' in PHP, that isn't going to do it because the session cookie is shared by all open windows of a browser.  You would have to open a Different browser to open a different PHP session.

Well...at this time the users are right clicking the link & choosing "open in a new window". I was just trying streamline it a little. I guess they'll just keep doing it as they've been doing it.
