    VBA with Internet Explorer

    Hi,
    I have been trolling this forum for a while and have mostly been able to search for answers. I am stuck now. I am a novice VBA user. I am trying to use VBA to control an IE website, which it works all the way to the end but the end result page which I would like to save as a .mht in a specified path without the user clicking save as. Anybody run into this?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Re: VBA with Internet Explorer

    Are you going to give any clues as to what the VBA code looks like? :-)

    A sample workbook would be helpful.

    It clicks a button and then produces a page that all I want to do with that page is go file save as and have a constant path that needs no input from the user.

    Re: VBA with Internet Explorer

    Hello Mike,

    As I understand this, you log into the website and open another page by clicking a button. Afterwords, you want to save this page to a file on your hard drive?

    Re: VBA with Internet Explorer

    Exactly. I want to save the page as a .mht
    You can go file save as and select the path but I would like this to be automated.

    Hello mike,

    Try this method.

    These constants will not work if you have not set a reference to the Microsoft Internet Controls library. The constants values are 4, and 2 respectively. If this doesn't work, I have an API routine to download a web page to a file.

    Re: VBA with Internet Explorer

    Thanks. Unfortunately it doesn't work it is still prompting the save as dialog box and gives me an error:
    Method ‘ExecWB’ of object ‘IWebBrowser2’ failed

    I do have the Microsoft Internet Controls Reference selected.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Re: VBA with Internet Explorer

    Hello Mike,

    Okay, time for plan "B". This macro will download a whole page to file on your hard drive. The macro only needs the address of the web page, the new file path, and new file name. Download this code into a separate VBA module.

    I didn't see any variables that you had declared for the file path and name in your code.You will need to add the file path and name to your macro. Presently, I have added the variables FilePath and FileName to your macro. You will need to assign values to them.

    Here is the updated version of your macro code.
