Private Function Chkit()
Dim shWin As New ShellWindows
Dim ie As InternetExplorer

For Each ie In shWin
 If ie.LocationURL = "http://www.somplace.com/somepage.asp" Then
    MsgBox ("Found it")
    Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set a = fs.CreateTextFile("c:\testfile.txt", True)
    a.writeline (ie.Document)
    a.Close
