It is very simple :)

First open a web browser and manually click the SignIn link on top. It will take you to the Sign In page. Copy the URL and paste the URL in the code below and run it :)

Sub LogOn()
    Dim ie As Object

    Set ie = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")

    ie.Visible = True
    
    '~~> Paste URL here
    ie.Navigate "https://www.google.com/accounts/Login?hl=en&continue=http://www.google.co.in/%23q%3Dvba%2Bcode%2Bto%2Bsign%2Bon%2Bto%2Ba%2Bwebsite%26hl%3Den%26biw%3D1280%26bih%3D619"
    
    '~~> Wait until page is loaded.
    While ie.ReadyState < 4
        DoEvents
    Wend
           
    ie.Document.All("Email").Value = "USERNAME"
    ie.Document.All("Passwd").Value = "PASSWORD"
    ie.Document.All("signIn").Click
       
    '~~> Wait until page is loaded.
    While ie.ReadyState < 4
        DoEvents
    Wend

Error-'Method 'Document' of object 'IWebBrowser2' failed'

Ok. Let me test it in Win 7. I will have to reboot. Will get back to you in 15 mins

Sid
How can i call chrome browser, lets try with this instead of IE 7
Ok. I tested it in Win 7 / IE 8 /  Excel 2010 and it is working fine.

Do you know how to debug the code?

Sid
Try upgrading to IE 8.
