Create WebQuery : Login>Create webquery : problem - after login new web page opens

Hello Excel masters,

I wish to design a time sheet macro for employees in excel using VBA using webquery. I have done most of the part (thanks to you guys for posting replies on various forums). The difficult part is after clicking login button, the actual timesheet browser opens in a new internet explorer window which escapes out of the webquery function. These are the steps followed to access the time sheet:

1. Open URL (done using macro)
2. login (done using macro)
3. Click login button (done using macro) ; now the hard part starts
4. a new web internet explorer window opens (search URL and activate this particular new web window; done using macro)
5. Create webquery with this new window - very difficult for a rookie like me. (I cannot simply copy and paste the new window's URL. If I copy and paste this new window's URL in address bar, it takes me back to the login page; this is really the pain part)

Any help from you masters will be of great great help to me..!
