How to Download File from Password Protected SharePoint using VBA (CAC Login)?

Experts,


I'm in the process of writing a couple of VBA scripts that will enable the user to download an Excel file from our password protected SharePoint site and import the data into the active workbook. I work for a government office, and our SharePoint site required a CAC login (CAC card must be inserted into computer). Upon navigating to the site, the Windows Security box pops up and requires a pin #. This workbook will be distributed to a couple of my co-workers.


I'd really prefer to not use SendKeys for obvious reasons. Is there any other way to do this?


I've accomplished this a number of times on non-government SharePoints, but am having some issues due to the CAC login. Any ideas?


Best,
Chris

I can't see how you would be allowed to access a protected site via Excel !!
The password requirements would still be required at the sharepoint entry !

Hey Michael,

Sorry for not being clear. We all have individual PINs to access said SharePoint. The objective would be for the script to authenticate SharePoint access using our individual PINs (depending on who the user is at the moment), and then import the data. I imagine our PINs could be fed into a userform for the user to type in..

Did you figure out the CAC authentication issue?
