How to modify VBA code to substitute “=” with “” before importing text from IE to excel?

When the value starts with a "=" the code errors out.
Example:  "==Ticket 0123456=="
Example 2: "=User has no connectivity="
Set objFound = objFrameDoc.getElementById("X99")
                If objFound Is Nothing Then
                    Range("K7").Value = ""
                Else
                    Range("K7").Value = objFound.Value
                End If

Concatenate a single quote in front of the text:

Range("K7").Value = "'" & objFound.Value

if I understand you correctly, you can try use the Replace function, like:

Set objFound = objFrameDoc.getElementById("X99")
                If objFound Is Nothing Then
                    Range("K7").Value = ""
                Else
                    Range("K7").Value = Replace(objFound.Value,"=","")
                End If
