Hello
I try this, but gets an invalid procedure call or argument.
Do YOU know what I am doing wrong??


front = FreeFile
Open App.Path & "\temp\" & "file000.htm" For Input As #front

Do While Not EOF(front)

  Line Input #front, forside
  forside = LCase(forside)
  anker = InStr(0, forside, "<a href=")
  If anker < 0 Then
    ref = Mid$(forside, anker, InStr(anker, forside, ">", vbTextCompare) - anker)
  End If
 
Text1.Text = ref
Loop

---
that's it

Try to put forside=Str(forside) before Instr function.
And whether reject or accept marti's question.
