Recently I made an update on my website I removed 3 frames from a page and replaced this with some tables and 1 iframe. If this page is opened directly or opened in a new window the horizontal scroll bar does not show in IE. If this page is opened using the link from my front page the horizontal scroll bar shows. This does not happen in NS7 at all. It doesnt make a difference at all if I change the width of my table to 80% or if I make it 100%. Even with a smaller table it still shows the horizontal scroll bar.

If this is the IFRAME scrollbar, is the item that containes the IFRAME smaller than the IFRAME size?

thehittmann - can you create a simplified version of the HTML to share with us? Just the barest minimum amount of code that's needed to generate the problem (with urls and other identifying information removed, of course).

One of two things will happen if you make that attempt. First, you may zero in on the exact spot in your code that creates the scrollbars for IE and not even need our help.

Or, when you post a simplified HTML snippet, it will become something the collective brain power of the community can work on with you.

*I am using partial css at the moment, but haven't converted my tables over as yet.

*The horizontal scroll bar only shows when this page is opened when linked from another page. If I type the page url that contains this code into the browser or open the page in a new window the horizontal scroll does not show.
Also again...this only happens in Internet Explorer. and still happens even if I make the the main table smaller.

<table width="100%" border="0" align="center">
<tr>
<td width="12%">&nbsp;</td>
<td width="88%" align="center" valign="top">
<img src=".jpg" width="550" height="60" border="0" usemap="#Map"></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td width="12%" height="800" valign="top">
(list of text links go in here)
</td>
<td width="88%" height="800" align="left" valign="top">
<iframe align="middle" height="800" width="100%" name="" src="" frameborder="0"></iframe></td></tr></table>

I tried your code, and also set up a second test page to open yours with a link, but I cannot reproduce the behavior. What version of IE and what operating system are you using?

I couldn't reproduce the problem, but I do remember (it's been awhile) having a problem with iframes and the scrollbar. It was giving me hell in ie6. I don't think I ever fixed it but made a compromise. I don't remember if this was what I did but maybe you could give it a try. Add scrolling="yes" to your iframe tag.

<iframe scrolling="yes" align="middle" height="800" width="100%" name="" src="" frameborder="0">

my problem isnt with the iframe,
my problem is with the ie scrollbar itself.
