    Thank you, Mr. Muskrat. Here is the code & details for you.

    use strict; use WWW::Mechanize; my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new(); my $url = "http://www.peoplebank.com/pbank/owa/arcadia.arcadiagroupcat +egories"; $mech->agent_alias('Mac Safari'); $mech->get($url); sleep(1); $mech->click(''); sleep(2); # upto here everything seems okay, am getting the page same as from th +e site. # In this page, actually a button named "p_next" is there, but I am un +able to click on this button using the below code. $mech->click("p_next"); # The above click will giva an error like, NO clickable input with nam +e p_next. #I tried but unable to solve the Issue, dont know why its not clicking +, bcoz actually the button is there.

    Hope you can solve it for me. Thanks in advance, Mr. Muskrat.

      Yes, the button is present. There are also multiple forms and by default WWW::Mechanize only deals with the first one and the button is not a part of that form.

        but i tried it with form_number also, no hope :(
