Using VBA to Set File Path and File Name in Web Pages in Order to Upload Data

Have VBA code to logon and walk thru a password secured website the last  web page shows a dialog/text box and browse button, the input type of the text box is "file", so it will only accept input from the file browse there is also a transmit button to upload the file. I am unable to alter the webpage - it is a 3rd party page.
My problem is I am unable to programmatically  insert the path and filename of the file to be uploaded into the textbox.
need some helpscreen shot of webform to upload a file.

Are you asking if Access can navigate to a web page and poke some data into a field and then press a button?  The answer is an unequivocal maybe.  Can you use the paste function of windows to populate the field?  If you can't, then Access won't be able to either.  If you can, I think you will need to figure out the name of the field and the name of the button.

It is pretty dangerous to try to paste data into a web page that you have no control over.  I would talk to the webmaster to find out if they have a service you can use instead.  That will make a cleaner, less likely to break, interface.
