 </span> 
 </a>
[/HTML]

I am trying to click this button with the following code.

<code>
Set Go = IE.document.getelementbyID("button-1036")
Go.Click
</code>

No dice. Here's the full code:

<code>
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim IE As Object
Dim usr As Object
Dim pwd As Object
Dim Go As Object

Set IE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
IE.Visible = False
'Go to this Web Page
IE.Navigate "https://eam-112.inforcloudsuite.com/web/base/logindisp?tenant=NAVISTARMFG_TRN"
'Check for good connection to web page loop
Do
If IE.ReadyState = 4 Then
IE.Visible = True
Exit Do
Else
DoEvents
End If
Loop
'Wait for window to open
Application.Wait (Now + TimeValue("0:00:01"))
IE.Visible = True
'Send logon information
Application.Wait (Now + TimeValue("0:00:01"))
Set usr = IE.document.getelementbyID("textfield-1034-inputEl")
usr.Value = "MYUSERNAME"

Set pwd = IE.document.getelementbyID("textfield-1035-inputEl")
pwd.Value = "MYPASSWORD"
Application.Wait (Now + TimeValue("0:00:01"))

Set Go = IE.document.getelementbyID("button-1036")
Go.Click
'Navigate to Work orders
Application.Wait (Now + TimeValue("0:00:02"))
Set IE = Nothing
End Sub
</code>

First 2 commands work fine, only the 3rd is giving me trouble.
