Subject:  Re: How do you jump to the middle of a form
The part after the pound sign in the URL is actually processed by the browser itself. The browser first requests the document from the server and, once the document is loaded, it looks for an anchor with the specified name. Since the HTML data is generated dynamically by your FoxWeb script, you could even insert the anchor on the fly in the correct place (or you could have several anchors in pre-defined places).

Thank you for your prompt reply.
The only question I have is will this work with .FWX scripts where the named link has not yet been resolved?
Can I code the following?
I will try it . The worst that can happen is that it fails.
Thanks again.

You need to insert a link anchor in your document and reference its name after the # symbol in the link URL.
For example, if your document contains the following anchor:
<a name="JumpPoint">
The following URL will take you there:
For details on links and anchors, please refer to the HTML specification.

I have a large form with buttons that link to other scripts that can take the action necessary.
After the action is complete, I want to return to the first form at the same place where the user was when they took the action.
I tried
TheSkip = Request.QueryString()       && get skip to if any
if not empty(TheSkip)
    TheSkipTo = "#"+TheSkip
The NAME contained in TheSkip exists but the form wouldn't load with this code in place.
Is there a technique to programatically jumping to a NAMED place in an HTML file?
