How do I extract the Title of a web page

I am using Excel VBA to scrape a page.
Everything is work, but I can't get the title.
HTMLDoc.Title is not returning anything, but HTMLDoc.body returns the text of the body.

Here is the code I am using:

   Dim HTMLDoc As New HTMLDocument
    Dim oHttp As MSXML2.XMLHTTP
    Dim sHTML As String
    Dim AnchorLinks As Object
    Dim TDelements As Object
    Dim TDelement As Object
    Dim AnchorLink As Object

    On Error Resume Next
    Set oHttp = New MSXML2.XMLHTTP
    If Err.Number <> 0 Then
        Set oHttp = CreateObject("MSXML.XMLHTTPRequest")
        MsgBox "Error 0 has occured while creating a MSXML.XMLHTTPRequest object"
    End If
    On Error GoTo 0
    If oHttp Is Nothing Then
        MsgBox "For some reason I wasn't able to make a MSXML2.XMLHTTP object"
        Exit Sub
    End If

    'Open the URL in browser object
    oHttp.Open "GET", URL, False
    oHttp.send
    sHTML = oHttp.responseText

    'Debug.Print oHttp.responseText

    HTMLDoc.body.innerHTML = oHttp.responseText
HTMLDoc.Title

Following your code, you can extract the title from the responseText:

     HTMLDoc.Title = Mid(oHttp.responseText, InStr(1, oHttp.responseText, "<Title>", vbTextCompare) + 7, _
                    InStr(1, oHttp.responseText, "</Title>", vbTextCompare) - _
                    InStr(1, oHttp.responseText, "<Title>", vbTextCompare) - 7)

Open in new window
