    Frames help needed

    I have a 4 frame page. split into a left, top, bottom and middle.
    I want a scrollbar on the left frame only, but theres not one on the page. How do I get a scrollbar to show up for the left frame only. Second, I'm using the left frame as a menu and I want links to open up in the middle frame, how do I do that?

    Pay special attention to the NAME= and TARGET= attributes used in the frames launching and frames referencing files, respectively.

    Hi there.

    When you create the frame within the <frameset> set, you give each frame a name ( name="left" eg ) .

    When you make your link, you specify a target. If your link was in the frame called 'left' and you want it to open within teh frame called 'main' , you would use

    <a href="blah.html" target="main">Blah</a>
