Here is a piece of code that opened google, populates ID field, then save the ID field in variable 'str'.

Sub test()
    strURL = "https://www.google.com/accounts/ServiceLogin?service=mail&passive=true&rm=false&continue=https%3A%2F%2Fmail.google.com%2Fmail%2F%3Fnsr%3D1%26ui%3Dhtml%26zy%3Dl&ltmpl=default&ltmplcache=2"
    strLoginName = "abcdefg"
    intTimeOut = 10
    
    Set objIE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
    objIE.Visible = True
    objIE.Navigate2 strURL
    
    If Err Then
        MsgBox "Error with IE object!"
        WScript.Quit
    End If
    
    
    boolTimedOut = False
    Do While objIE.Busy
        Application.Wait DateAdd("s", 10, Now)
        i = i + 1
        If i > CInt(intTimeOut * 10) Then
            boolTimedOut = True
            MsgBox "Timeout expired waiting for IE object to stop loading!"
            Exit Sub
        End If
    Loop
    
    objIE.document.getElementById("Email").Value = strLoginName
    
    Dim str As String
    str = objIE.document.getElementById("Email").Value
    
    MsgBox "str = [" & str & "]"
    
    'objIE.document.getElementById("signIn").Click
    'objIE.Quit
End Sub
