    I have a frameset with a fixed top and fixed bottom. The page that is displayed in the middle has a horizontal scrollbar....that I dont want!!!

    Ive inserted a table on the main page that is 735 pixels wide(centered).
    I have a header in the topFrame that is 780 pixels wide. This frame doesnt have a horizontal scrollbar, but the main page that has a table smaller than the topFrame has the stupid horizontal scrollbar.

    How do i get rid of the horizontal scrollbar? Theres nothing to scroll to, so why is it there?

    any help will be appreciated

    I relised why it is doing this. When the page becomes to long and a vertical scrollbar appears, it "squashes" the page by 10 pixels or so(the size of the vertical scrollbar) and thats why the horizontal scrollbar appears.

    So in essence what is happening is when the vertical scrollbar appears, the horizontal scrollbar wants to scroll because there is space taken up by the vertical scrollbar....

    Does this help?

    yea...you probably have extra "whitespace".

    what is happening is you have either whitespace or you have a <br /> or <p> tag of some sort that is cause you to have more space than there really is...cause a scrollbar to appear.

    you said u are using frames?? if so in the index file there is the <frame> tag...try giving it an attribute of scrolling=no

    ex.
    HTML Code:
    <frame scrolling="no">
    do you have a link to the example so i may look at it?? this would really help me...ill be here to answer ure questions til the problem is resolved.
    Thanks,
    Drew

    Oh ja, another thing, I do want a vertical scrollbar. If the page is long then you must be able to scroll. But when the page becomes too long(not too wide) then the horizontal bar appears.

    All I want is a vertical to appear, not a horizontal...
