Lookup customer name on IE and return address using VBA

I have a list of business names in Excel starting in cell A2 going down to A3, A4 etc. The record-set is pretty large as it contains over 100,000 rows. What I need to do is to retrieve the address for these business using IE and return the corresponding address in cell B2, B3 etc..

I'm pretty new in the coding world and was wondering if there is any VBA code you may think of I could use to perform this task automatically.

Thank you in advance for your valuable help.

I found a code that looks similar to what I'm attempting to do. I acquired a google API key, however, it keeps on returning the same address in column 15. I feel I'm close to the end result but I would need your help to further understand what is wrong in the below code.

Sub myTest()
    Dim xhrRequest As XMLHTTP60
    Dim domDoc As DOMDocument60
    Dim domDoc2 As DOMDocument60
    Dim placeID As String
    Dim query As String
    Dim nodes As IXMLDOMNodeList
    Dim node As IXMLDOMNode

    Dim rng As Range, cell As Range

    Set rng = Range("L2:L100")

    For Each cell In rng
On Error Resume Next

    query = cell.Value

    Dim googleKey As String
    googleKey =

    Set xhrRequest = New XMLHTTP60

    xhrRequest.Open "GET", "https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/place/textsearch/xml?" & _
        "query=" & query & "&key=" & googleKey, False

    Set domDoc = New DOMDocument60
    domDoc.LoadXML xhrRequest.responseText
    placeID = domDoc.SelectSingleNode("//result/place_id").Text

    Set domDoc = Nothing
    Set xhrRequest = Nothing

    Set xhrRequest = New XMLHTTP60
    xhrRequest.Open "GET", "https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/place/details/xml?placeid=" & placeID & _
    "&key=" & googleKey, False

    Set domDoc = New DOMDocument60
    domDoc.LoadXML xhrRequest.responseText

    Dim output As String
    Dim s As String

    Set nodes = domDoc.SelectNodes("//result/address_component/type")
    For Each node In nodes
        s = node.Text
        If s = "street_number" Then
            cell.Offset(0, 1).Value = "Address: " & node.ParentNode.FirstChild.Text
        End If

        If s = "postal_code" Then
            cell.Offset(0, 2).Value = "Postal Code: " & node.ParentNode.FirstChild.Text
        End If
    Next node
    Cells(cell.Row, 15) = domDoc.SelectSingleNode("//result/formatted_address").Text & output
    Next cell

End Sub
