How To access form name if there's a form field named "name"
Can someone please tell me how to access the form name if there's a form
field named "name", for example:
<input type="text" name="name" value="Marc">
<input type="button" onClick="alert(this.form.name);">
When I do this, the alert shows "[object HTMLInputObject]" (in firefox)
or just "[object]" (in ie6) instead of the string "myform".
the problem is that I access the form element named "name" instead of

Probably there isn't a name of a form in the sub-form's Source Object
property. Also, the Link Child Fields and the Link Master Fields
properties may be blank - you must enter the names of the link fields,
they hold the field names that link the data between the forms.

Well, its sames difficult for me; I love access so much and wish to make

Hi everyone !
1) An example from help:
"Each Form object has a Controls collection, which contains all
controls on the form. You can refer to a control on a form either
by implicitly or explicitly referring to the Controls collection. Your
code will be faster if you refer to the Controls collection implicitly.
The following examples show two of the ways you might refer
to a control named NewData on the form called OrderForm:
' Implicit reference.
' Explicit reference.

...Mechanize: find form with 'id' rather than 'name'?
This is what I am doing:
my_form = doc.forms.with.name(formname).first
This is what I want:
my_form = doc.forms.with.id(id_string).first
but somehow Mechanize does not like it.
Maybe because id collides with Object.id?
My problem is that the from does *not* have a 'name' attribute in the
html - so apparently I can not use that to locate it - therefore I would
like to use 'id' - or what else should I do?

I know this is a stretch to ask this question, but:
We have an Access 2010 application hosted using Remote Desktop. When
we access forms from the desktop they look like they should. And from
an iPad. However, a client is using their Surface Pro the forms are
so tiny that she can't use them when accessing our application "on the
cloud". Otherwise, they look fine on a Surface Pro when running it
off the cloud.
Does anyone have an idea? I do not think there is anything that the
people that are hosting our software can do.

Environment: Microsoft Excel 2003 running on Windows XP, IE 7.0
I am a newcomer both in Excel programming and JSP space.
My puzzle is that what is the correct way, if any, to embed the web
exactly as would be in IE.
My web query gives a table on a page that has links, and if I click
the link browser would typically 'submit the form' [and would bring
next table]. Can I replicate this iteration via 'form submit'
way exactly it does within IE?
I tried searching on this topic in newsgruops, tries to see how
tried to see if I could embed
Browser ActiveX and few other searches, and tried to see if there is
any way to intercept HTTP request sent by IE when first page form is
'submitted' - but answer seems away for me.
Any pointers shall be of much use.
Thanks for your time.
...Calling form's methods using a string
I know that you can call the method of one from from inside another

However, you have to know that MyForm has a function called

can with the form name? That is can I do something like

The Hyperlink works great.
When users close the Excel File, they must choose the correct open
