Hi,
     I wrote this piece of code to connect to explorer, open a webpage, and copy data from there by searching for a field name...What is the easiest or efficient way to copy data from a table located on a web page ?

Dim oIE, oIEDoc
Dim aInput As Variant
'Create the IE Application object
Set oIE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
oIE.Visible = True

'Load page with data
oIE.Navigate ("http://172.20.41.11/test/FGPH_Detail.asp?varCrit=test-1Z&submit1=Submit+Query")
'Wait for page to load
Do While (oIE.ReadyState <> 4)
Loop

'Capture the IE document
Set oIEDoc = oIE.document
Set oBody = oIEDoc.Body
'Field Name
Text = "Customer Name"
dietype = InStr(oBody.innerText, Text)

oIE.Quit
Set oIE = Nothing

I would use the Internet Transfer Control to get the full HTML source of the page, you can then use string manipulation to extract the parts you need. This would save you the massive overhead of loading IE (uses far too much memory and processor time for the basic purpose it serves).

Presuming you had an Internet Transfer Control on yourt form called "Inet1":

'-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Dim sHTMLSource  As String
    sHTMLSource = Inet1.OpenURL("http://www.someurl.here", icString)
'-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
