Hi All,

I have the following code:

Code:
Sub NewTest()

Dim IE As Object
    Set IE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.application")
    With IE
        .Visible = True
        .navigate ("my website")
        While .Busy Or .readyState <> 4: DoEvents: Wend
    .document.getElementById("txtIdentity").Focus
    .document.getElementById("txtIdentity").Value = "stephen"
    .document.getElementById("txtPassword").Focus
    .document.getElementById("txtPassword").Value = ""
    
    .document.all("btnLogon").Click
    While .Busy Or .readyState <> 4: DoEvents: Wend
        
    .document.getElementById("ctl00_QC").Focus
    .document.getElementById("ctl00_QC").Value = "LAMT"
    
    .document.all("ctl00_btnQCSamePage").Click

    While .Busy Or .readyState <> 4: DoEvents: Wend
    '***NOT WORKING!!****
    '.Document.getElementById("iLOTNOENT").Focus
    '.Document.getElementById("iLOTNOENT").Value = "L"
    
    '.Document.getElementById("LOTAPPROIND").Focus
    '.Document.getElementById("LOTAPPROIND").Value = "Y"
    '***NOT WORKING!!****
        'Debug.Print .LocationURL
    End With
    
End Sub
Unfortunately the end of the code isn't working and i'm not sure why, but i may be because the website is using different panels for its layout?

See picture: Here

Is there anyway of navigating to these 2 input boxes at all?
 

Excel Facts

VLOOKUP to Left?
Use =VLOOKUP(A2,CHOOSE({1,2},$Z$1:$Z$99,$Y$1:$Y$99),2,False) to lookup Y values to left of Z values.

Are you sure they are ID's and not classes or names? can you post the HTML code? what error are you getting currently?

Hi Barry,

Thanks for the response. Yes they should be ID's as the other boxes are working fine... I get a run-time error '424' Object required.
This is the same error i got when i didn't have the correct ID. Can't give the HTML unfortunately as its not my code i'm accessing, however the ID is correct.
