What do I need to change in this code to make a popup appear within the access environment instead of a new internet explorer page?

This link provides more details, the solution there did not work unfortunately.

Private Sub Form_Load()
 
On Error GoTo Err_Form_Load
 
    Me.txtURL = "https://vsr.citigroup.net/virtualsecurityrequest"
 
 
 
    If Len(Me.txtURL) > 0 Then
        Me.ocxWebBrowser.Navigate Me.txtURL
    End If
 
 
 
End_Form_Load:
    Exit Sub
 
Err_Form_Load:
    MsgBox "Error " & Err.Number & ": " & Err.Description & vbCrLf & _
        " in " & Me.Name & ".Form_Load_Click", _
        vbOKOnly & vbCritical, "Smart Access Answer Column"
    Resume End_Form_Load
 
End Sub

What do you mean by "a popup in the Access environment"? Are you referring to an IE popup? What's the popup supposed to do?

Yes, I would like to capture an IE Popup within access. The code above loads a webpage within access, but when I click on a link that leads to a popup, that popup always ends up outside of the access environment in a normal ie popup. I need the information in the popup to remain within access so that I can program run some code on it to append a database with user records. http://www.experts-exchange.com/Microsoft/Development/MS_Access/Access_Coding-Macros/Q_22965154.html gives an example of a webpage you can put in the above code

" Me.txtURL = "insert new webpage here"

That will demonstrate how when you click on the link a new ie webpage opens outside of access.

I'm not sure you can force IE to place the popup in a particular location ... there may be some properties/methods of the WebBrowser control, or a sub-object in that control, but I don't really know.

This links explains the Naviagte method in details; perhaps you could use one or more of the Methods here to get what you want:

You might also try posting a pointer question in the IE section for this (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Internet/Web_Browsers/Internet_Explorer/#browseZones); those guys do a LOT more with this type of thing than do we, and might be able to help.
