I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

try this..

use Web Browser control in ur application...which will open the link that u type into a textbox...

place a button on that form containing web browser control and add this code..

Private Sub SaveAsButtonClick()

    WebBrowser.ExecWB OLECMDID_SAVEAS, OLECMDEXECOPT_DODEFAULT

end sub

if u want to automate i.e u dont want the user to clkick on any button or so..then add above code in the Document_complete event..of the web browser control

like
sub webBrowser1_DownloadComplete()
    while webbrowser1.Busy  'ie. Web broswer has not yet finished navigating          to 'the ''desired link..
         DoEvents
    wend
 WebBrowser.ExecWB OLECMDID_SAVEAS, OLECMDEXECOPT_DODEFAULT
end sub
