    How to Make Internet Explorer Active

    All,

    I'm having a slight problem in automating IE with Excel VBA. I'm trying to start a new instance of internet explorer and make it visible. When I use the following code, it creates the new instance, but instead of making IE visible, it just blinks orange in my taskbar (See screenshot).

    This only happens the first time I run the macro when I open the workbook. When I run it a second time it normally works....any idea what is going on here?

    Hi Porucha,

    Unfortunately, that did not work. However, I just figured out a work around, see the code below. It turns out that opening IE as a child window works perfectly.
