I'm attempting to auto complete a Web control embedded within an Excel form.  I'm having issues clicking the image button (which submits the form).  Web page code is below.

I think the issue is due to the type being "image."

Name of image on web form: aviaf_selectgroupbutton

Grasping for straws I've tried...
UserForm1.WebBrowser1.Document.forms(0).GetElementById("aviaf_selectgroupbutton").InvokeMember ("click")
UserForm1.WebBrowser1.Document.forms(0).submit
UserForm1.Document.forms(0).elements("aviaf_selectgroupbutton").Click

How has the code you've tried failed?

Does this work?
Dim frm As Object

    Set frm = UserForm1.WebBrowser1.Document.forms(0)

    frm.submit
