Hi,

See if this helps :

1. Go to your project refferences and select "Microsoft    
   Internet Controls", which is a refference to shdocvw.dll

2. Add the following code for a command button click :

Dim ws As SHDocVw.InternetExplorer

Private Sub Command1_Click()

Set ws = New InternetExplorer

ws.Visible = True
ws.Navigate ("www.google.com")

End Sub

To use alternative browsers use the WebBrowser class included in this library.

Or, if you need to see the web page code from inside your VB program :

url$ = "http://www.something.com"
q$ = Inet1.OpenURL(url$)

q$ now has the code from the web page to parse as you'd like.
