          Thank you for your post.

           

          Yes, the New Window command in Instant Web Publishing.  It opens a virtual window.  You can make any changes you want and when you encounter a Close Window command, you will be returned to your original window.

            Still new at this,

             

            What is a virtual Window?  

             

            I have a button that I want to make a new IE window with a different layout.  When I use this script:

             

             

            New Window (Virtual Window On Web): [Name: "Layout"]

            Go to Layout ["Printpreview"]

             

            This script does not open a new IE window, it just send me to layout "Printpreview"

             

             

            Thanks

              A new IE window will not open, because that would create a second link into the database file.

               

              With Instant Web Publishing, a new window is open and takes you to "Printpreview" layout.  If you now include a button on "Printpreview" that issues a "Close Window" command, you will be returned to your previous window/layout.  So the New Window command is "virtually" the same in Instant Web Publishing, but it is contained in the same browser window.
