My form looks as follows. Why isn't the function Validate called when
the function test is called? Thanks for your help!!

function Validate()
{
alert("in validate");
}

function test()
{
//do something
document.forms[0].submit;
}
<FORM method="POST" onsubmit="return Validate()">
....
<input type=text value="xyz" onclick="test()">
</FORM>

Because you aren't calling submit as a function:

document.forms[0].submit();

You are basically asking if submit exists, which is does. But you are
doing nothing with it, so nothing's happening.

The lack of paranetheses was my typo. Thanks for your reply.
