This function should do the trick:

Function GetHTTPResult(sURL As String) As String
    Dim XMLHTTP As Variant, sResult As String
    Set XMLHTTP = CreateObject("WinHttp.WinHttpRequest.5.1")
    XMLHTTP.Open "GET", sURL, False
    XMLHTTP.Send
    Debug.Print "Status: " & XMLHTTP.Status & " - " & XMLHTTP.StatusText
    sResult = XMLHTTP.ResponseText
    Debug.Print "Length of response: " & Len(sResult)
    Set XMLHTTP = Nothing
    GetHTTPResult = sResult
End Function

Open in new window
