I'm using the following call to activate s submit button on a web form (VB code below, web form html at end of this post):

wb.Document.getElementById("ResultsForm").submit

This works fine.  However, on pages that have mutiple "ResultsForm" ids (see html code below), I need to be able to specify which "ResultsForm" submit button I want to activiate.  I tried,

wb.Document.getElementById("ResultsForm")(3).submit
wb.Document.getElementById("ResultsForm").submit(3)

Neither worked.  What's the correct syntax here?  Thanks

(html from page, a page can have X number of ResultsForm ids.  NO, I have no control over the HTML/tags on the page)

      <form method="POST" action="details_ACH.cfm?aba=231082826" name="ResultsForm">
    <a href="details_ACH.cfm?aba=231082826">2310-8282-6</a>
      

 <input size="-4" type="submit" size="-4" name="details" VALUE="More ..." >
      </form>

                        
                  
                  </font>
                  </td>
            <td bgcolor="#F2F2F2">
      
                  ATLANTIC EMPL FCU                  
                  
                  </td>
            <td bgcolor="#F2F2F2">
                  NEWTOWN SQUARE      
                  
                  </font>
                  </td>      
    <td bgcolor="#F2F2F2">
     
        PA
       
     </td>
                  
<!-- End of table row -->
            </tr>

      <tr valign=top>
            <td bgcolor="#F2F2F2">            

                  2
                  </td>
            <td bgcolor="#F2F2F2">
                  
                  
                  

                        
 


            

      <form method="POST" action="details_ACH.cfm?aba=231170136" name="ResultsForm">
    <a href="details_ACH.cfm?aba=231170136">2311-7013-6</a>
      

 <input size="-4" type="submit" size="-4" name="details" VALUE="More ..." >
      </form>

                        
                  
                  </font>
                  </td>
            <td bgcolor="#F2F2F2">
      
                  LEHMAN BROTHERS BANK, FSB          
                  
                  </td>
            <td bgcolor="#F2F2F2">
                  WILMINGTON          
                  
                  </font>
                  </td>      
    <td bgcolor="#F2F2F2">
     
        DE
       
     </td>
                  
<!-- End of table row -->
            </tr>

      <tr valign=top>
            <td bgcolor="#F2F2F2">            

                  3
                  </td>

i dont think u can do it...
because ids assume that u have one id per page...
so each name should be unique!!

what u can do is name them... resultsform1, 2, 3, 4...
and then use: getElementById("ResultsForm1").submit

cheers,

dan

Dan,

As I mention in my original post,  I cannot control the html so I can't rename etc.
