refreshing a page in a frame

I have an application that displays messages that are stored in SQL server
The application uses frames

In the vertical frame along the left side of the page, I enumerate the
current messages. This frame is named "SELECT"
Clicking on a message subject causes

In the main frame, named "BODY" I display the message that is retrieved from
SQL Server in a textarea.
When a message is displayed, I also display a prompt ro delete the message.

The delete prompt works just fine except that I need a way to update the
enumeration of messages in the "SELECT" frame.
Is there a practical way to force the page in the select frame to refresh
itself when I delete a record?

Thanks,

-dmd-

There's no way to do it via asp (asp code processes at the server, which
knows nothing about frames.), but it is certainly possible using client-side
dhtml script.

Please follow-up on a client-side scripting group (look for groups with
"dhtml" in their names - also, the two .scripting.* groups will handle
client-side code questions) and provide a little more detail: specifically,
the "prompt" code.
