how do you specify a target frame in html when embeding a flash button in a page? Dose it require JavaScript? Thanks for any help given.

You can't do a BASE HREF if that's what you mean. You simply need to include the frame name in each GetURL call like this:

getURL ("file.html", "theFrameHere");

Where theFrameHere is the name of the frame you want the content to load in.

Just use the target name flash default under stands _blank
to be a new window and _parent to be the entire same window. If you are trying to target like a main body page I have used _main or _mainFrame but to do this also look at the parent frame code for the naming convention of each page target you want to call. Hope this helps
