POS/ getElementById - multiple similar ID tags on Html page

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">

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

            </tr>

      <tr valign=top>

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

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,

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

*blush*
although it contradicts with its name, i didnt think a page could have different objects with same ids..
anyways, everyday we learn new stuff ;)

glad that the case is solved!

and good luck on the remainder of ur project!
