hi,

I have the following line of code:

$.ajax({url:"case.php",type:"post"});

window.open("test.php","_self");

The case.php assigns a value to a session variable, it works perfect until I add the window.open statement, then the ajax statement stop working. Any idea?

Because the ajax is asynchronous ergo you are changing the url before it is finished

Change your code to
$.ajax({ url: "case.php",type:"post"}).done(function () {
    window.open("test.php","_self");
})

Open in new window
