    Can you expand this question a little. What exactly do you want to do? What type of data are you planning to work with? (Large blocks of text, lists of numbers, etc?)

    OK, is this what you are looking for?

    <title>Some Test Page</title>
    <p>This is box 1</p>
    <textarea NAME="Box1" ROWS="3" COLS="80" wrap="off">
    <p>This is box 2</p>
    <textarea NAME="Box2" ROWS="3" COLS="80" wrap="off">

VB App
In a new project add two text boxes and two command buttons. Paste this code into place on the form (correct the paty to Test.html)

Option Explicit

Dim oIE As Object

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Set oIE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
    oIE.Visible = True
    oIE.Navigate ("C:\y\Test.html")
    While oIE.Busy: Wend ' wait for page to load...
    oIE.Document.All("box1").Value = Text1.Text
    oIE.Document.All("box2").Value = Text2.Text
End Sub

Private Sub Command2_Click()
    Text1.Text = oIE.Document.All("box1").Value
    Text2.Text = oIE.Document.All("box2").Value
End Sub
