You should be able to do something like this. Add a reference to "Microsoft WinHTTP Services, version 5.1" and then use the following code:

Function PostData(firstName As String, lastName As String, address As String, product As String, orderNum As String) As String
    Dim req As New WinHttp.WinHttpRequest
    
    With req
        .Open "POST", "http://192.168.56.101/index.php?"
        .SetRequestHeader "Content-type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded"
        .Send "firstname=" & firstName & "&lastname=" & lastName & "&address=" & address & "&product=" & product & "&ordernumber=" & orderNum
        PostData = .ResponseText
    End With

    Set req = Nothing
    
End Function

Open in new window


Usage would be along these lines:
Sub test()
    resultingHTML = PostData("john", "doe", "123 Main St., Anytown, USA", "widgets", "12345")
    
    MsgBox resultingHTML
End Sub

Open in new window

P.S.

Don't forget to change the URL (the 2nd parameter in line 5). I forgot to change it from my test address  : \
