Window scrollbars and dynamic table length

    OK, this is probably a real basic question, but I'm drawing a complete blank
    on how to solve it.

    I have a window that has been opened via the javascript window.open method,
    with the appropriate parameters for enabling scrollbars and resizing. In
    that window I have a dynamically generated table, whose length can be quite
    long. The problem arises in that the table can get longer than the original
    window size, but the scrollbars aren't appearing! Presumably since the
    table is server-side generated, the window should recognize the page length
    when the html is dumped to it, but it isn't for some reason. Is there a
    trick to getting this to work? I'd also rather not resize the window itself
    for this particular function...

    Any suggestions?

  2. The scroll bars aren't appearing? On what? The window or the table? Are
    you using an html table or a server control?
