so here's a task i'm stuck on. i'd like my excel file to access a website and do a search in there. i believe in theory this isn't difficult. what complicates things though is that this website isn't accessible by anyone outside work. and i can't just copy the website and paste it into a new tab, if i do so i get an error. the only way to access the site by browser is to goto it's 'parent' site, and then scroll down to a link, which then loads the specific page i want.

i believe a macro cant do that. so it seems to me the only way i can make this process more efficient is if i manually load this page 20 times in 20 open tabs, and then have my excel file access these tabs. the contents of my workbooks A1 cell should be pasted into the first field of the first tab, A2 into the first field of the second tab, etc.

can a macro do this? ie can i access my browser, or does everything have to happen 'within' excel?
