Hi,

I have used the methods 'followhyperlink' and acCmdOpenHyperLink to launch web pages for user interaction, but now I have the following problem and need so guidance on how best to achieve the result.

I want to use the SMSGlobal facilities to send SMS messages from an Access 2010 app. It is easy enough to construct the http command with signin, password, tomobile etc. The result lauches the website as a blank page and returns a one line result/error message.

I would like to send the link and receive the result from the page back into my application without showing on the users screen the actual webpage interaction how can this be best achieved?

The web page result looks like this:
<html><head><META content="IE=5.0000" http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible"></head><body>OK: 0; Sent queued message ID: 2045e550e7356343 SMSGlobalMsgID:6666903908584126
</body></html>

So I need help with DOM in vba to extract the body text only
