I have the following code for the webpage (which is in the code). When I use it I get the Run time error 438 (Object doesn't support this property method) highlighting the IE.Document.getElementsByName("CustID").Value = "Username1".

I would like the username to be entered automatically and continue button next to the username box to be clicked automatically.

How can I achieve this?

Sub aa2()

Dim IE As Object
  
  Set IE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
  
  IE.Visible = True
  IE.Navigate "www2.netxpro.com"
  ' Wait for the page to load.
  Do While IE.Busy Or IE.ReadyState <> 4
    DoEvents
  Loop
  
  IE.Document.getElementsByName("CustID").Value = "Username1"

End Sub

Sub Sample()
    Dim IE As Object
  
    Set IE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
  
    IE.Visible = True
    
    IE.Navigate "https://www2.netxpro.com/salogin.htm"
    ' Wait for the page to load.
    Do While IE.Busy Or IE.ReadyState <> 4
        DoEvents
    Loop
  
    IE.Document.getElementById("CustID").Value = "Username1"

End Sub
