Excel VBA to download a file from Internet Explorer

pmcd2012 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I need help controlling internet explorer to allow me to download a specific file and save it to a specific location without user input.  I already have the code to control the explorer window and I know how to navigate using VBA.  The only problem I have is getting past the pop-up window that asks me to Open, Save or Cancel.  Once I get past that, I will need to tell the window where I want the file saved and the name I wanted it saved as.  I can't provide the internet website as it is a secure website that I can't give login information to.  I will also need to tell the "Download Complete" window to close once the download is done.
