Use this code.  It will load the output from an ASP page into a local variable:
Add the INet control to the form.

YourVariable= Inet1.OpenURL("http://your.server.com/directory/to/asp/youfile.asp")

if you do a Msgbox YourVariable, you will get the content of the output in the messagebox.

Thanks a lot,i think it will do good to me.
As a beginner i want to make it detail that if i can get plural output from asp and get them identically? and the output from asp means the value of input-type of form or by "location.href("http://../../asp/youfile.asp?a=3&b="gg"&..") ?

What my suggestion does is send the entire HTML document to a variable in your VB program.  It is up to you to parse the info out.  I recommend that you create your ASP page so that the info is easily parsed... ie have it setup like this


then search for "a=" in the body... you can get the vale from that then.
