I am using PB6.5.1 on Windows XP platform. I am having a problem when I use
Close(Parent). When the script run until Close(Parent), all the windows
disappear include the caller windows.

The caller windows scripts on command button is as follows:
openwithparam(w_2, 'abcd')

The w_2 windows will retrieve data from db, and do some updation on
datawindow. Then exits script in command button like following:

After the script "close(parent)", all the windows are disappered. Could
anyone help me to solve this problem??? Thanks a lot.
