Normally to press a button, it works great to:
WebBrowser2.Document.All("btnUpdateTotals2").Click

But I have a button that is not cooperating:
'<input type="submit" name="cmdsave" id="cmdsave" class="fBtn11" value="Save">

How can I press this button?

Do you mean you are trying

     WebBrowser2.Document.All("cmdsave").Click

and it doesn't work?

That is correct, I get:
Run-time error '91':
Object variable or With block variable not set

The <INPUT> tag is within the <FORM> tag (just making sure)?

Yes, the page I'm working with is "View Sales Record" on eBay.

<form>
...
<input type="submit" name="cmdsave" id="cmdsave" class="fBtn11" value="Save">
...
</form>

It's not inside an <IFRAME> is it?  I've had situations where "View Source" would show me the whole page, but I wouldn't have access to the <IFRAME> within.

Just a thought...

No <IFRAME> on the page.
