try with
<script>
<!--
function execute()
{
    MyForm.submit()
    // or
    // Document.Myform.submit()
    // or
    // Document.forms[0].submit()
}
//-->
</script>
<body onload="a=setTimeout('execute()',5000)">

an onload option is javascript defect you dont need put it, and maybe you need to assign to a variable the timeout.

i don´t undestand the problem.. i read the source and i think that you want to wait 5 seconds before you force a submit , if is this you dont need to put the timeout in the onload.. you could put it at buttom with

<script>
<!--
function execute()
{
    document.myform.submit()
     //or
     //document.forms[0].submit()
}
a=setTimeot('execute()',5000);
//-->
</script>

normaly work better if you call a function that an inline..

Thanx for your suggestion.
Actually, i want this page to keep executing at 5 minutes interval, when a user logs in, and will run untill user clicks LOGOUT (i will add this button later).

I tried your sugesstion # 2, IE error window pop up, with msg "Wrong number of arguments or invalid property assignment: 'execute'".

Any more suggestions...???

I really apprecite your help, and concern. I hope you gonna make this code run for me.

Do you think I need to refresh the page. using <meta...> as well, or delay time in setTimeout will be enough?

I think following code is better to consider as Upload Button is just used as type 'BUTTON' and an onClick event is written in VBScript. We need to automate that Onclick VBScript event.

Can we do it? as i tried this code and it works if i click upload button by my self.

<script language="VBScript">
Sub Select_OnClick
      UploadCtl.Select
End Sub
Sub Remove_OnClick
      UploadCtl.RemoveHighlighted
End Sub
Sub RemoveAll_OnClick
      UploadCtl.RemoveAll
End Sub
Sub Upload_OnClick
      UploadCtl.Upload
End Sub
</script>

<html>

<head>
<title></title>
</head>

<body>

<p>
<object WIDTH="500" HEIGHT="200" ID="UploadCtl"
CLASSID="CLSID:E87F6C8E-16C0-11D3-BEF7-009027438003" CODEBASE="XUpload.ocx">
  <param name="EnablePopupMenu" value="False">
  <param name="ViewServerReply" value="False">
  <param name="Server" value="rntv">
  <param name="Script" value="/v2/xupload/samples/uploadscript.asp">
  <param name="FILE1" value="d:\nemos_pure">
</object>
</p>
 <p><input TYPE="BUTTON" NAME="SELECT" VALUE="Select"> <input TYPE="BUTTON" NAME="REMOVE"
  VALUE="Remove"> <input TYPE="BUTTON" NAME="REMOVEALL" VALUE="Remove All"> <input
  TYPE="button" NAME="UPLOAD" VALUE="Upload"> </p>
</body>
</html>
