Hi all,

I have a web form page to populate using Excel VBA. My data is in 4 columns and has over 2000 lines. For each line, I need to send the values of the first 3 columns to specific fields, then the "ENTER" key must be pressed, the macro will require to wait for the webpage to update, then send the value of the 4th column and finalize with another "ENTER" key pressed. Then it needs to move on to the second line of data and repeat the process till the end of spreadsheet data.

This web form doesn't have any buttons to click, it must be an "ENTER" key pressed.

I found this bit of code posted by Domenic back in 2018 and it works perfectly for what I need to do, but I have trouble figuring out how to send the "ENTER" key to the webpage and wait.
Can someone help me out ?
Thanks in advance.

Here is the code:

Option Explicit
Sub Login()

Dim oShell As Object
Dim oShellWindows As Object
Dim oShellWindow As Object

Set oShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
Set oShellWindows = oShell.Windows

For Each oShellWindow In oShellWindows
If oShellWindow.Name = "Internet Explorer" Then
If oShellWindow.Document.Title = "identificazione" Then
With oShellWindow.Document
.all("entry.402896772").Value = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Foglio1").Range("D2").Value
.all("entry.249387921").Value = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Foglio1").Range("E2").Value
'etc
'
'
End With
Exit For
End If
End If
Next oShellWindow

Set oShell = Nothing
Set oShellWindows = Nothing
Set oShellWindow = Nothing

End Sub

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).

IF it helps, I found this function in javascript imbedded into the webpage:

function FKeyAction(strMessage, strSubmitValue) {
// If help page is displayed, FKeys are not allowed
if ($.isHelpDisplayed) {
return;
}
if (!$.alreadySubmitted) {
// Check if the function key is activated
if (strMessage == "Submitting" ||
getObjectById("FunctionKeys", "INPUT").value.indexOf(strMessage) > -1) {
// If so submit the data
$.alreadySubmitted = true;
window.status = strMessage;
getObjectById("SubmitAction", "INPUT").value = strSubmitValue;
// Set the timestamp
var now = new Date();
getObjectById("RoundTripTimestamp", "INPUT").value = now.getTime();
var isValidated = processPrePostValidation();
if (isValidated) {
VerifyNowEmptyFocuElements();
PopulateNumericFields();

document.forms[0].submit();
} else {
$.alreadySubmitted = false;
window.status = "";
}
}
else {
// We don't want anything to happen when the function keys are disabled
window.status = "";
}
}
// Cancel the event since we are either submitting already or we do not want to do anything
cancelEvent();
}

callback: DoNewline,
ctrlCallback: DoNewline,
shiftCallback: DoSubmit,
NumPadEnter: DoSubmit


function DoSubmit() {
CancelQuitEvent();
// If help page is displayed, submission is not allowed
if ($.isHelpDisplayed) {
return;
}
// Submit the form.
FKeyAction("Submitting", "0");
