What do you mean by opening a hyperlink? Do you mean visiting the link? In the same window or opening another one?

To access the parent page, try:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. window.opener
The links collection will give you the links in a document. If you have given the link an id, it is even easier:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. window.opener.document.getElementById(linkid)
To change the location:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. location.href=newurl
If you still have problems, post your code.
