    HTML Select Multiple Values in Option Menu

    Hello Excel Forum,

    This is my first post. I'm very new to HTML and have a little bit of experience with VBA. I am trying to navigate through a webpage so that I can eventually grab the table from the page.

    There is a multi-select dropdown menu on the page similar to the drop down menu in the following link.
    http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tryit....elect_multiple

    I need to be able to select multiple values in the drop-down menus and then submit the search. There are multiple drop-down menus to select from. One drop menu refers to "State" and the other to "Chain". Currently, I am able to select one drop-down menu item and submit the search which can be seen in the code below.

    Help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!


    VBA:

    But to pilot IE is the worst way ! Intermediate way is the worksheet function Query from Web.
    Better way is a request like a webbrowser uses …
