In the following code:

    http.Open "GET", WebBrowser1.LocationURL, "False"
    http.Send
    Text3 = http.ResponseText

Sometimes "http.Send" fails.  How can I trap this and have http try it again?

Hi

You can use the .Status property to find out it a Get/Post was successful or not via the HTTP Status Codes.

Here is a list of them.

I see what you mean, but would it even get to .Status if .Send fails?
