Hi all

I want to click on a hyperlink on a webpage using VBA that I have found using the below method:

 Set trs = ie.document.getElementsByTagName("tr")

For Each trObj In trs

    Set tds = trObj.getElementsByTagName("td")

    For Each tdObj In tds

           If tdObj.className = "btn_container" And tdObj.innerText = "Reinstate Award" Then


            End If


Open in new window

I can't get the tdObj.Click bit to click the hyperlink.

The html is below:

<td class="btn_container">

<input name="_linkSubmit" type="hidden"><a name="assessment_Reinstate" class="button_link" id="assessment_Reinstate" onclick="javascript:return disableLinks(this.href);" href='javascript:submitLink(document.Form0,"assessment_Reinstate");' type="button" renderer="">Reinstate Award</a>


Open in new window

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
