[thelist] Sending Var From Popup To Parent

	Okay, I'll see what I can do.  First of all, this parameter will
be coming back in the child (popup) window, so that's where you run this
script.  You'll need to write out the value into a js variable, like

<script language="javascript">

var myFileName = "##WhateverYourColdFusionSyntaxIs##";

	Then you need to decide what form field you're planning to use
in the parent (opener) window.  I may have misspoken about the syntax;
you'll probably need "opener" rather than "parent":

window.opener.document.form.textFieldName.value = myFileName;


	I'm not sure how else to explain it, so if you have specific
questions/difficulties, let me know and we can work specifically with

Thanks, Peter...

Can you give me a little more information?  I'm afraid that javascript
just isn't my forte...

Or even a location with a tutorial that I could walk through?
