I need to fire and event in a JavaScript.  Specifically, I created a form like so:

</script>
<script language = "JavaScript">
document.write('<FORM NAME="BetaTest" METHOD=POST ACTION="http://www.interlink-2000.com/cgi-bin/formmail.cgi">')
document.write('<INPUT TYPE="HIDDEN" NAME="subject" VALUE="Survey Response">')
document.write('<INPUT TYPE="HIDDEN" NAME="recipient" VALUE="dirtdart@apex.net">')
document.write('<INPUT TYPE="HIDDEN" NAME="return-email" VALUE=email>')
document.write('<INPUT TYPE="HIDDEN" NAME="return-name" VALUE=ename>')
document.write('<INPUT TYPE="HIDDEN" NAME="City" VALUE=city>')
document.write('<INPUT TYPE="HIDDEN" NAME="State" VALUE=state>')
document.write('<INPUT TYPE="HIDDEN" NAME="Country" VALUE=country>')
document.write('<INPUT TYPE="HIDDEN" NAME="OS" VALUE=os>')
document.write('<INPUT TYPE="HIDDEN" NAME="VBVersion" VALUE=VBVersion>')
document.write('<INPUT TYPE="SUBMIT" NAME="Submit">')
</script>

From another section of the script, I need to fire the Submit button's click event.  Anyone know how to do it?

Since your question is not totally clear to me, i would suggest you to have a look at www.dannyg.com (go to the mini faq)
    Do you want a button to submit this form, or do you want a JavaScript command to submit this form?
    you can send a form, from anywhere in the script with the command:
    document.BetaTest.submit();
    Good luck

Maybe it's just me, but it's just not working.  What you've said is what I'm looking for, but I can't seem to get it to work.  Here's what I'm doing.

I have an input form on another page in another frame.  The final destination of this information is a cgi script on another server.  But before it gets there, I would like to validate that all the information is there.  To do that, I sent the information to another frame to make sure it is all there.  When it is verified that the information is present, then the script should insert the information into hidden form fields, submit it to the cgi script and load another page into the first frame.  The page is loading into the first frame, but the form is not submitting.  Here's the code:

function ValidInfo(subject, recipient, ename, email, city, state, country, os, vbversion)
{
      MissingInfo = new String("");
      
      if(ename == "")
            MissingInfo = MissingInfo + "Your+Name";
      if(email == "")
      {
            if(MissingInfo.length > 0)
                  MissingInfo = MissingInfo + ",";
            MissingInfo = MissingInfo + "Your+Email";
      }
      if(os == "")
      {
            if(MissingInfo.length > 0)
                  MissingInfo = MissingInfo + ",";
            MissingInfo = MissingInfo + "Your+Operating+System+Version";
      }
      if(vbversion == "")
      {
            if(MissingInfo.length > 0)
                  MissingInfo = MissingInfo + ",";
            MissingInfo = MissingInfo + "Your+Visual+Basic+Version";
      }
      if(MissingInfo.length > 0)
      {
            parent.frames[1].location = "miss.html?" + MissingInfo;
      }
      else
      {
            parent.frames[1].location = "http://www.apex.net/users/dirtdart/ApiHelper.htm";
            BetaTest.return_email.value = email;
            BetaTest.return_name.value = ename;
            BetaTest.City.value = city;
            BetaTest.State.value = state;
            BetaTest.Country.value = Country;
            BetaTest.OS.value = os;
            BetaTest.VBVersion.value = vbversion;
            BetaTest.SUBMIT();
      }
}

It doesn't even have to be done in this way if you can suggest some better way to do it.  I just want to verify that all the information is there before it goes to the cgi.

Well, I got the form working.  Turns out I didn't need the submit method, but you gave me the right answer anyway, so I'll give you the points.
