Just think I did all this work and you are only giving out 1 point.

It was a solution for a single submit but I have multiple submits and it seems to cancel each other out. Any ideas? Thank you for all your help.

By using the NAME attribute of the submit INPUT tag, you can evaluate which submit image was clicked on the refering page. The name of the submit button is passed as a form field which you can check to see if it exists. If it wasn't clicked, no value is passed.

-- form page:
<FORM METHOD="post" ACTION="someAction.cfm">
    <INPUT TYPE="Image" NAME="action1" SRC="image1.gif">
    <INPUT TYPE="Image" NAME="action2" SRC="image2.gif">
</FORM>

-- destination page:
<CFIF IsDefined("FORM.action1")>
    ...put code here...
</CFIF>

<CFIF IsDefined("FORM.action2")>
    ...put code here...
</CFIF>

This is a great way to have multiple action from a single form.

Hope that helps

Only type this:

<input type="image" src="image.gif" value="submit" border="0">

and works in both navigators.
