Where is the PHP script located?  Is it available at a URL so you can call it in the form of an API?

It is located on a website. I cannot post the URL due to licensing restrictions from the vendor. But essentially, it is something like the following:

http://VendorSite.com/DataSource.php

Thanks for the link and the help. Below is the code that I extrapolated from the site and used in my application:

Private Sub Test(strPage As String, strPost As String)

    Dim req As Object 'New MSXML2.XMLHTTP30
    Set req = CreateObject("MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP")
   
    req.Open "POST", strPage, False
    req.setRequestHeader "Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded"
    req.send strPost
   
    MsgBox req.responseText

End Sub
