How can I open an HTML page in a specific worksheet with Excel VBA? I currently do an import which works ok, but I wanted to keep the original page.

In a new workbook, it's fairly easy.

Dim mb As Workbook
Set mb = Workbooks.Open("http://www.printware.co.uk/Products/Result-Groups.html?searchtext=A0DK152")

Dim mb As Workbook
Set mb = Workbooks.Open("http://www.printware.co.uk/Products/Result-Groups.html?searchtext=A0DK152")
'The line below moves the workbook to a new sheet before Sheet1 in ThisWorkbook, which is the workbook from which you call the VBA macro
mb.Worksheets(1).Move ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Sheet1")

That worked, but how do I get it to load ina a specific Worksheet, I have a report that runs every morning and I have an HTML page that I need to load into a specific Worksheet called EDLC from a local folder, let's say c:\test\edlc.mht.

With this type of macro it should open the other book, move the webpage into that book, delete the old EDLC page and rename the new page to EDLC.

Dim mb As Workbook
Dim otherB as workbook
Dim newS as worksheet
Set mb = Workbooks.Open("http://www.printware.co.uk/Products/Result-Groups.html?searchtext=A0DK152")
Set otherB = Workbooks.Open("c:\test\edlc.mht.xls")
'The line below moves the workbook to a new sheet before Sheet1 in ThisWorkbook, which is the workbook from which you call the VBA macro
mb.Worksheets(1).Move otherB.Worksheets("EDLC")
Set newS = ActiveSheet
otherB.Worksheets("EDLC").Delete
newS.Name = "EDLC"

Would this work?
Range("A1").LoadText("c:\test\edlc.mht")

Open in new window
