Rather than subjecting the user to all these browser windows opening, you might want to open them in little bitty iframes.
You might like to look into Ajax to achieve this type of functionality. Personally I use hidden frames in a similar fashion to what Dan suggests - make them invisible and then tell them to run whatever you want. Its also quite easy to send results back to the calling page.
I see your points however this time this was not intended to be a user run program but a scheduled job run on a server where if, heaven forbid, there ever was an error I would be able to view the page and correct it. There are other "pop ups" in our application that could be hidden so I will imploy your suggestions there.
Thank you both.
Our scheduled jobs run in a browser. They are scheduled using Windows scheduled tasks that open a browser and run a particular cfm.
