Dear Experts,

I'm trying to pass a username and password to a secured website using ms access.
I have tried passing the values in the URL (stURL = "Http://" & stSUser & ":" & stSPass & "@" & stURL_Root) and tried to pass the values using SendKeys while Internet Explorer has the focus.
In the first case (passing values in URL) IE returns the "Page cannot be displayed" error, while username and password are correct.
In the second case the logon dialog opens but the username is not pasted into the Dialog box :

On Error Resume Next
    Set Ie = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
        With Ie
           .Navigate stURL_Root
           .Visible = True
     End With
Sendkey stPaste 'string for userid has been copied to the clipboard

Can anybody help me with this issue?

Thanks and regards, Johan

Does the website support passing the username and password in the URL? If so, you'd need to contact them to find out the exact syntax to use, but most sites that do support this use syntax like this:

http:\\www.website.com?username=scott&password=mcdaniel

or something similar.

If you're trying to "automate" the webpage and add your username and password via VBA, then the short answer is you really cannot do this. There is no way to automate a webpage, except through methods exposed by the webpage ...

Can I ask why a B? You haven't replied to this, and the comment I provided was pretty exact ... you might not like the answer, but the answer is correct.
