This should work as long as you are opening the second document with window.open(). Usually IE is more lenient than Netscape, so you could be violating syntax and IE is just ignorning it. Can you post the code you use to open the window, and also the code you are using to update the form?

Hi, Thanks for replying to this Connie.. I could not post the code as it is too complicated to post it here. Anyway, I was able to solve by using eval(window.opener.document.<formName>.<fieldName>.value) This worked in IE as well as Netscape.
