    Question Newbie needs help with combo box script

    Hi all,
    First time in this forum, so if I'm stepping on toes I apologize in advance.
    I am wanting to use a Triple Combo box in frames and would like the third box's URLs to open in a seperate frame. I have the script for the combo boxes (thank you javascriptkit.com) but unsure how to restructure the third combo. Here is the script.

    Thanx

    <FORM name="isc">
    <div align="center">
    <center>
    <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%">
    <tr align="center">
    <td nowrap height="11" width="781">
    <p align="center"> &nbsp;

    <select name="example" size="1" onChange="redirect(this.options.selectedIndex)">
    <option selected>---Select1-------------</option>
    <option>Webmaster Sites</option>
    <option>News Sites</option>
    </select>

    <select name="stage2" size="1" onChange="redirect1(this.options.selectedIndex)">
    <option value=" " selected> </option>
    <option value=" " selected>---Select2--------------</option>
    <option value=" " selected>---Select2--------------</option>
    </select>

    <select name="stage3" size="1" onChange="redirect2(this.options.selectedIndex)">
    <option value=" " selected> </option>
    <option value=" " selected>---Select3----------------</option>
    <option value=" " selected>---Select3----------------</option>
    </select>

    <script>

    just want combo 3 to open in another frame? easy (i think).

    do this

    function redirect2(z){
    parent.framename.location=temp1[z].value
    }

    where framename is the name of the frame from your frameset i.e.

    <frame src="blah.html" name="framename" width=100>

    does this do it?
