Once you have the element you could just try it's click method.

Or if it's form you want to submit you could try something like this.

ie.document.forms(0).submit()

Open in new window


This would submit the first form on the page, if there is more than one form change 0 to get the right one.

If you want to submit the form try the code I posted.

That should be just the same as clicking the submit/logon button.

That's kind of a whole different question.:)

Might even need the URL for the site to take a look at the rest of the source code.
