Calling jsp from within another

One jsp is being called from within another jsp on click of button (not submit button)by calling javascript function as

fucntion call()
document.frm.method = "get";
document.frm.action = "page2.jsp";

A page has more than one button to call other jsp by calling appropriate javascript function.
This code works smoothly, but after some time it starts giveing error as "document.frm.submit is not a function"

What could be the reson? & how to resolve it?
Please do needful.
Thanks in advance.

"document.frm.submit is not a function"

That would be a Javascript error.
I'm thinking that this is not a JSP issue.
We would need more information about your page and how it's being used to know why this is happening.
I'm going to move this to our HTML/Javascript forum.

Is your form named "frm"?
