Displaying UPS Tracking Number information using VBA

I am trying to display information for a UPS tracking number by double clicking on the tracking number on a subform in Access 2010.

I have the following code on the double click event for the tracking number field:

Private Sub Tracking_Number_DblClick(Cancel As Integer)

    UPSID = "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE http://wwwapps.ups.com/WebTracking/track?loc=en_US&ID=" & Tracking_Number

    X = Shell(UPSID, vbMaximizedFocus)
   
End Sub

This code brings up the UPS Tracking site but it does not fill in the Tracking Number and display information for it.  Is there a way to do this?
