If you're getting that message from AutoIt, it is not comming from the ControlClick.

See the second example for _IEAction which walks you through doing just this...

Use either _IEFormElementGetCollection or _IETagnameGetCollection, input -- but with an index parameter to get the instance you want.

Yep. Source code order, start with 0 (0, 1, 2, 3 etc.). DebugBar (see my sig) may help you.
