Please take a look at _IEFormGetCollection and it's examples in the helpfile. I've added remarks to all of the *GetObjByName functions in the latest release candidate helpfile to help provide guidance to people with this very common question.

i looked at the help file and looked at that function but it has no way to select a form using the action and I don't know how you would find the instance number of the form?

Any way to find that?

There is no no method that simply hands the answer to you, but there are lots of ways to do it.

The "AutoIt IE Builder" (Valuater's tool... see my sig) is probably the easiest way. To use it for this:

1) install IE Builder and run it

2) enter your URL at the top and press Go

3) click the Source Code button on the left

4) click the Display Source button at the top

5) click the Form Elements button on the left

Information about the forms on the page including names, indexes and form elements will be displayed for you.
