Is it possible to open up and redirect a browser to a new page using visual basic? I have a button that when pressed has all kinds of things happening and then redirects you to a webpage.

Thanks,
Nik

I'm not clear on what you mean by "redirect".  It's possible to open a browser and navigate to a given page (i.e. URL) from within VB.  Is that what you have in mind?  If so, then the code fragment below demonstrates how to do this.

    Set objIE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
    objIE.Navigate2 "http://www.yahoo.com"
    Do While objIE.readyState <> 4
        DoEvents
    Loop
    objIE.Visible = True
    Set objIE = Nothing
