    Use the opener object to get the handle of the window object of the main window from the popup window.
    Code:
    if (opener && !opener.closed){
      var s = opener.document.forms[0].theField.value;
      alert(s);
    }
    If the other way around.
    Code:
    w = window.open('popup.htm');
    then somewhere in the code...
    Code:
    if (w && !w.closed){
      var s = w.document.forms[0].thePopupField.value;
      alert(s);
    }
    If this is not what you want, then please describe your problem in more detail.
