I have to interface with a government site from an Access application and there are no API's for VBA. I'm wondering if anyone else has used these tools?

Here is a link to what I'm talking about...

My being able to do this will be a deciding factor in my getting this project.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can do something similar to the following sample in VBA code:

Dim reqOpenData as New XMLHTTP

reqOpenData.Open "GET", "https://data.kingcounty.gov/resource/murn-chih.json?record_type=FOUND"


Open in new window
