Submit multiple forms with one submit button

I have the following code, basically it is performing two operations. First one being submitting my form data to the google spreadsheet and the other operation is submitting my second form textbox value data to another page textbox value. How to do this?

<script type="text/javascript">

<!--
   function copy_data(val){
 var a = document.getElementById(val.id).value
 document.getElementById("copy_to").value=a
}
//-->
</SCRIPT>
<style type="text/css">
<!--
-->
</style>

</head>
<body >
<script type="text/javascript">var submitted=false;</script>           
 <iframe name="response_iframe" id="hidden_iframe" style="display:none;" onload="if(submitted){window.location='Thanks.asp';}"></iframe>            <form action="https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/formResponse?formkey=dGtzZnBaYTh4Q1JfanlOUVZhZkVVUVE6MQ&ifq" method="post" target="response_iframe" id="commentForm" onSubmit="submitted=true;">

</form>


<p><!-- #include virtual="/sts/include/footer.asp" -->

  <input type="hidden" name="pageNumber" value="0">
  <input type="hidden" name="backupCache" value="">
<script type="text/javascript">

      (function() {
var divs = document.getElementById('ss-form').
getElementsByTagName('div');
var numDivs = divs.length;
for (var j = 0; j < numDivs; j++) {
if (divs[j].className == 'errorbox-bad') {
divs[j].lastChild.firstChild.lastChild.focus();
return;
}
}
for (var i = 0; i < numDivs; i++) {
var div = divs[i];
if (div.className == 'ss-form-entry' &&
div.firstChild &&
div.firstChild.className == 'ss-q-title') {
div.lastChild.focus();
return;
}
}

As you can see from above, this is the first page and in the second page where I was referring to Sankranthi_Reserv2.asp in the second form. I want to pass the textbox value over there, so the problem is the first form is submitting to the google docs and storing the data, but the second form need to pass the handphone number textbox value to the nextpage textbox value, but there is only one SUBMIT button.

Answer

For submitting two forms you will have to use Ajax. As after using form.submit() page will load action URL for that form. so you will have to do that asynchronously.

So you can send both request asynchronously or send one request asynchronously and after its success submit second form.

function submitTwoForms() {
var dataObject = {"form1 Data with name as key and value "};
    $.ajax({
      url: "test.html",
      data : dataObject,
      type : "GET",
      success: function(){
        $("#form2").submit();   //assuming id of second form  is form2
      }
    });
    return false;   //to prevent submit
}

You can bind this submitTwoForms() function on your that one submit button. Using

$('#form1').submit(function() {
    submitTwoForms();
    return false;
});

But, if you do not want to do all this, you can use Jquery form plugin to submit form using Ajax.

Answer

Something like this would work:

$('#form1_submit_button').click(function(){
    $('form').each(function(){
        $(this).submit();
    });
});

Alternative:

$('#form1_submit_button').click(function(){
    $('#form1 #form2 #form3').submit();
});
Answer

the simplest way I have found is something like this

<form method='post' action='whatever?whatever1=blah&whatever2=blah'>
<?php
header ("Location: http://example.com/whatever.html");
?>

This will do the action of the form (without showing it in your browser), then redirect to the page of the header.
