I start with this: Set objCollection = ieDocOverstock.getElementsByTagName("div")
Then loop through the objCollection looking for those with the classname "ordercontianer"
That is working OK.
Inside the div is a number of hyperlinks (<a>).
The following line gives me a permissions error
                Set Links = objCollection.getElementsByTagName("a")

How are you looping?
Lets say for example

While i < objCollection.Length
    // if element has class then we do
    Set Links = objCollection(i).getElementsByTagName("a")
