you could use an http-equiv="refresh" - although I'm sure there are other ways, thats not the worst one to use. you could also have the page that returns your form have a <cflocation> tag in it that would redirect to the next page, although thats pretty fast too and there's no way to change its speed. there are lots of different ways to go, but if you don't need anything special, the http-equiv="refresh" might be the easiest way to go. shout if you have more questions :) .djc.
