I have in Excel vba

Dim xhr As WinHttp.WinHTTPRequest
   
    Set xhr = CreateObject(WinHttp.WinHTTPRequest)

but this gives me "compile error user defined type not defined.

I must be missing a reference or something like but not too familiar with vba.

Help please

you have to put a reference to the Microsoft WinHTTP Services. In your VBA project window go to the menu Tools-> Reference and add the WinHTTP services. Then you should be able to compile. Also in your code you are doing both early and late binding which is not helpful.

If you do not want to add a reference to the services then you can do

Dim xhr As Object    
Set xhr = CreateObject(WinHttp.WinHTTPRequest)

and if you have added the reference then you should get the intellisense when you enter space after the As keyword

Dim xhr As WinHttp.WinHTTPRequest
   
    Set xhr = New WinHTTPRequest

Hope this helps.
