Hi,
I managed to login to site then navigate to specific URL which is a JSON

After loading the page, a prompt comes up to open/save JSON

Is there a way I can save this to a specific folder with VBA?

Return population for a City
If you have a list of cities in A2:A100, use Data, Geography. Then =A2.Population and copy down.

This example shows how to download a text file without Internet Explorer:

Code:
Sub DloadFile()
Dim ostream, wreq As Object
Set wreq = CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
wreq.Open "GET", "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/jdorfman/" & _
"awesome-json-datasets/master/tests/relaxed.json", False
wreq.send
If wreq.Status = 200 Then
    Set ostream = CreateObject("ADODB.Stream")
    ostream.Open
    ostream.Type = 1
    ostream.Write wreq.responseBody
    ostream.SaveToFile "C:\pub\file.json", 2    ' overwrite
    ostream.Close
End If
End Sub

Thanks for the reply but it isn't this simple as the site requires secure login.

I managed to automate this with IE, though stuck at the (Open /Save) notification bar that pops up.

Tried lots of code from various sites but no luck.
