I don't know if this is even possible, but is there a way in VB to navigate to a webpage and then logon to it (i.e. enter name and password into textboxes and then activate a button)? Sorry for the lack of points but that all I got....

Thanks for your help.

You can place a Web Browser Control and place the fllowing code into a command button, when you click it it will login automically

replace yourname with your name
replace yourpassword with your password

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    WebBrowser1.Navigate ("http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/memberLogin.jsp?redirectURL=&loginMemberName=yourname&loginPassword=yourpassword&submit=login")

End Sub

Good Luck!!
