 Calling Submit Routine....ACK

Hey there.

Does anyone know how to emulate a submit button function from a subroutine?
For instance, when I click on a button in a form I want to run a short
subroutine that in turn (if certain criteria are met) will submit the data
from the form to another page (as any well behaved submit button would)
My best (pathetic?) guess:

    Sub Run()
        Call document.forms.form1.submit()
    End Sub

Hey Nic,

We have been using Javascript to cancel or redirect submits in IE4 as

//The Form Def
<form NAME="ProfileForm" METHOD="POST"
ACTION="destinationform.asp?ParmOne=0>" Language="JavaScript"

//The Button Def
<input TYPE="submit" NAME="SubmitProfile" VALUE="Save &gt;">

//The 'cancel the submit if we want to' Routine
function cancelLink()
if( == 'SubmitProfile')
        if(window.event.srcElement.value == 'Save >')
                        //Set the event returnValue to false to cancel the submit.
                        if (!validateForm(document.ProfileForm))
                                //Alert to bad field validation
                                alert ('Provide all of the information requested, then select Save >');
                                window.event.returnValue = false;



\\The validate routine, extend for each field in form
function validateForm(form)
    if (isEmpty(form.txtField1)) return false;
    return true;

Lot's of room for improvement but you get the idea.

Hope this helps,
