Installed new toilet, and have leak between the tank and bowl. have tried reseating a couple of times and still have leak while flushing.

Does anything obvious come to mind immediately that I might be missing or need to check.

No leak at base of toilet at flange area, but could the bowl/tank leak be somehow related to flange/bowl seating? I'm going on the conclusion that i'm good at that point, but should i re-evaluate that area also.

Can't figure out what is causing the leak, unless i'm just not getting the tank set properly. Any thoughts?

The seating of the bowl to the tank is probably the culprit. Also, make sure the 2 bolts are snug, sealed, and equally positioned so that the top of the tank is level.
