VBA to check if an IE tag class exists

I've created code in MS Access that reads and stores various data elements from a web page.

But, sometimes, that page (result from filling out a form) does not have any data. In which case, a message shows up.

Here's a portion of the HTML:

<body onLoad="onLoad()">
<div id="wrap">
  <!--header start -->
  <div id="custom_header">
        <div style="width:370px; text-align:left; margin:auto 0px; padding-top:10px; padding-left:10px;">
      <p style="font-size:24pt; font-weight:bold; color: #fff; text-align:center; font-family: Tahoma, Geneva, sans-serif; line-height:24pt">
        My First Line      </p>
      <p style="font-size:18pt; font-weight:700; color: #fff; text-align:center; font-family: Tahoma, Geneva, sans-serif; padding-top:5px">
        My Second Line        <br />
        <br/>
      </p>
      <br />
    </div>
      </div>
  <!--header end --> 


<div id="main">

<div id="maincontent">
<div class="ui-corner-all warning">
	<h3>Your Business Phone Number <u>8005551212</u> is not being found!</h3>
</div><br />

Open in new window



This tag: <div class="ui-corner-all warning">

ONLY shows up in the document when the form returns no data.

what vba can I use to search the IE DOM to see if that tag/class exists?)

I feel like it should be something like one of these...

.getElementByID
.getElementsByTagName
.getElementsByClassName

But, I'm stumped.

Any help?

I found something that maybe you could incorporate:
Dim html As Object ' MSHTML.HTMLDocument
Dim resultClasses As Object 
Dim resultClass As Object 

Set html = CreateObject("htmlfile") ' New MSHTML.HTMLDocument
html.body.innerHTML = ' String variable containing your result

Set resultClasses = html.getElementsByTagName("div") 
For Each resultClass In resultClasses 
    If resultClass.getAttribute("class") = "ui-corner-all warning" Then 
        Msgbox "Found"
        Exit For 
    End If 
Next resultClass 

Open in new window
