Calcite | Level 5

I am producing a bar chart using SAS/Graph, and the chart is clickable which drills down to a detailed tabular report. When I click to drill down, I get the tabular report but it comes up on a separate Internet Explorer tab instead of on the same tab where the bar chart was. I need to figure out what option or whatever i've set that causes the report to appear in a separate tab and change it so that the report just appears in the same tab where the bar chart was.

That way navigation is the normal "backward" and "forward" with the "arrow" buttons in Internet Explorer (instead of forcing the user to go hunting around in their IE tabs).  BTW, when I turn off tabbing (IE 8), I get a new IE session popping up with the tabular report in it.

I'm sure that I'm missing something obvious, because I've done this kind of thing before, but I am not finding the issue by poring through my code.

Thanks in advance.

You didn't mention which mode you were using but, hopefully, the following is what you are looking for:

By default with HTML mode, a new browser window is opened and the URL is loaded in the new window. To control whether the URL is loaded into the current window or into a new window, use the DRILLTARGET parameter, which accepts a string argument that specifies the standard HTML targets ("_blank", "_self", "_parent", "_top" and any valid named target).
