    Post VBA Macro to Internet Explorer automation

    Greetings to all experts and gurus out there!
    I知 trying to automate my excel to click on specific fields and login to a specific site currently I知 using sendkeys, but you know how unreliable the code is. I知 not entirely sure that the <td> and <div> is the cause, but this is the only difference I see from the sites where my code is working and is not working. Please see the code below:
    P.S. got the code from Youtube, and I just modified it for my use. Props to the author!

    Hello darkstarpepper,

    This worked for me. Change the variables "user" and "pwd" to your user name and password.

    Re: VBA Macro to Internet Explorer automation

    thank you so much for the rep! I'll update you on this one if it works. Thanks!

    Moments later..

    I've tried your code.. unfortunately I'm getting a:

    runtime-error'91':
    Object variable or with block variable not set

    it then highlights the following on the code

    oUser.Value = user

    Note:
    I've already changed the user and pwd fields with my username and password..

    Worked like a charm Leith! Thank you so much for this.. I have a ton of internal sites waiting to be automated! is it fine if I ask some follow up questions if incase some of the internal sites won't accept the code? (its just me thinking ahead due to excitement!) anyways. Mission accomplished on this one! thanks a lot!

    Re: VBA Macro to Internet Explorer automation

    So sorry for a quick followup question. Upon testing the code at home, i was able to run it.. now im trying to run it here at the office and it's giving me a runtime error. Please see error code below


    Run-time error '-2147417848(80010108)':

    Automation Error
    The object invoked has disconnected from its clients

    it then highlights the following line:

    Set HTMLDoc = IE.document

    Re: VBA Macro to Internet Explorer automation

    Hello AS33,

    Thanks for the catch!

    @ darkstarpepper - The error means that the HTML document no longer refers to the Internet Explorer document. This generally happens when Internet Explorer has not finished processing the document before the system returns control to VBA.

    Internet Explorer runs in parallel with the VBA code. There is no way to synchronize the two 100 percent The best method is to catch the run-time error and flag the URL that failed and then have the program go back later and recheck those that failed the first time.

    Re: VBA Macro to Internet Explorer automation

    sorry guys for the late update.. tried it out at my house and it worked, then tried it out again at work then its not working.. i am not entirely sure what the issue is, it might be something with the restrictions or whatever imposed by our system admin.. Ill try to get a fix on this one and post the code once i get this done. Thanks for the help again Leith and AB33
