    Web-crawler looking for keywirds

    Hi Back in 2015 you folks helped me with the original setup of this, it was on post4247489. It worked fine for a few years but now I am getting a VBA error and I cant figure out whats wrong. Our company had us using a much older version of IE back then and now they have standardized on IE11 if that matters. If anyone can help me where it "sticks" i'd greatly appreciate it. Please see attached and press the button called Check in cell G1

    Thank you,

    Dave

    Anyone? The VBA code now fails at a point it never did before? Any help would be appreciated please.

    I usually use late binding rather than early... and also rarely use the InternetExplorerMedium approach.. Try this modification, seems to work on my end (2 lines changed, they are in red):

    Arkadi, thank you. that did the trick. odd how it worked for a few years then stopped. The binding and IE approach you mention, is this something your two changes fixed? I'm open to any and all improvements from what I am using... Thank you for your help and time!!!

    The late binding is more convenient because you don't need to add a reference library when using late binding. The downside is that during coding you don't get Intellisense help.

    I suspect that if you used "Dim ie as InternetExplorer" it would also work... because my version is the equivalent of that.

    I'm glad it worked out for you, and thanks for the rep
    Could you also please mark the thread as solved if you are satisfied? Thanks in advance.
