So simple, but I am soooo stupid (and tired)

So simple, but I am soooo stupid (and tired) Can't Post

Can someone please explain this one to me.
I have a search engine, and a form that submits to it.

Now when i first got the form the submit button had the value=getresults
this worked fine, when you clicked the button it searched. However...when you hit return it didnt, it instead displayed the default form.

After tracking this down i managed to find the following statement in the script:

if ($FORM{'getresults'}) {&getresults;}
else {&searchhtml;}

so I figured that this was the prob, my perl isnt great, so I changed the value of the submit button to SUBMIT, and then when round changing all the getresults in the script to SUBMIT. But the problem still persists!

Can anyone please please help me

You can see it (or whats left of it after I have tinkered with it) at

Ive been up for almost 20 hrs, so please please help!

Thank in advance.....
