Submitting multiple forms on one page

    I have inherited a table where each row is a <form>

    Each of these rows has only four columns, those being:
    1) Item number
    4) Quantity (blank textbox to fill in)
    3) Description
    4) Add link (to add just this one item.

    That works fine but, now they want to have a submit button at the top
    of the page, that when clicked, will submit every form whose quantity
    has a value.

    I have been searching, reading, and trying everything I could find
    (I'm not a javascript programmer) to no avail.

    Is this even possible? How can I accomplish this.

    Thx

    Submitting a form on a web page has the same effect as clicking a link.
    It will take you away from that page and on to the one specified by the
    form (or determined by its action).

    Theoretically you could submit all the forms on the page by writing ...

    for (i=0; i<document.forms.length; i++) {
    document.forms.submit();
    }

    ... the problem is that you might as well just try and click all the
    links on the page at the same time instead ;)

    The solutions are either to (tidier) rewrite the page to use only one
    form or (less modification of current code) call a function which puts
    the details of all the current forms into a new single one. The former
    would be the preferable one.
