You mean like by using query strings?
a target=otherframe href=page.php?variable=info
And on the page.php you just read/print/manage $variable

Can't say I've ever done it, as I try not to use frames, but I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work. dingman msg:1279699 4:21 pm on Nov 5, 2002 (gmt 0)
I did it once with an in-house interface to a MySQL DB. (Marketing director needed something more user-friendly than a command line for updating the database our website was generated from.) It worked suprisingly well for something with frames in it. And the method celerityfm suggested "Worked For Me". dhdweb msg:1279700 9:14 pm on Nov 6, 2002 (gmt 0)
As long as you are sending query strings to the frames it will work just fine!
e.g. href="page1.php?var=whatever" target="frame name"
