    First off you are going to use VBScript so that is going to run into a lot of compliance issues

    Second off you are agam calling a code that is not generated in the pop up window. We brought this up the last time you posted your question

    You need to either include the code in the pop up or referece the function from the child. window.opener.FunctionName()

    Now if you are only planning on doing this with IE, I suggest thta you look into an active X control since it probably do this better.

    My 2 cents
