I have a form that has two embedded forms (iframe datapage deployment)

First subform is a submission form and the second a single record update form.

I have a javascript function that is run by clicking on a button in the parent form that randomly selects a record whose parameters are then passed to both of the embedded forms. After the action is completed, I want to submit both of the embedded forms, without submitting or reloading the parent form, because the action can potentially be repeated. I have tried several options, but can't get the submit to work.

Below is my javascript funtion as I have it now.

The names of my iframe forms are 

Form a - embeddedsubmitform

Form b - embeddedupdateform

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    function getemprec()
        var radget = document.forms[0].elements["cbParamVirtual5"]; //this is radio button that will determine the number of times the function will be run
            for (var i=0; i<radget.length;i++)
                    var S1 = radget.value;
            var S2 = Number(S1);
            var E1 = document.getElementsByName("cbParamVirtual4")[0].length; //this returns a list of total records in the system
            var E2 = Number(E1);
            var E3 = E2/S2;
            var S3 = Number(E3);
            document.getElementById("InsertRecordNumber_of_Screens").value = S3;
            var scrtyp = document.getElementById("InsertRecordScreening_type").value;
            var scrdate = document.getElementById("InsertRecordDate_of_Screens").value;
            var T1 = document.getElementsByName("InsertRecordEmployees")[0].length;
            var n1 = Number(T1);
            var n2 = n1 - 1;
            var numb = Math.floor(Math.random()*n2);
            var numb2 = Number(numb);

            document.getElementsByName("InsertRecordEmployees")[0].selectedIndex = numb2;
            var reclist = document.getElementsByName("InsertRecordEmployees")[0];              
            var recvalue = reclist.options[reclist.selectedIndex].value;
            document.getElementById("cbParamVirtual2").value = recvalue;    
            document.getElementById("embeddedsubmitform").src ='../pages/submit.html?SelEmp_Rec_ID='+recvalue+"&Screen_Type="+scrtyp;
            document.getElementById("embeddedupdateform").src ='../pages/update.html?DS_Emp_Rec_ID='+ recvalue+"&DS_date="+scrdate;

Auto-Submitting does not work when more than one DataPage is present in a web-page.

A workaround would be to change to a one-DataPage layout.

Auto-submit the first page, then upon submitting, pass the param through, load the second DataPage which also auto-submits, then refresh the child.
