Hi

I'm trying to scrape an webpage.

Code:
        Dim html As HTMLDocument
        Dim oHttp As MSXML2.XMLHTTP60
        
        oHttp.Open "GET", o.url, False
        oHttp.send
        
        Set html = New HTMLDocument
        Set html.body.innerHTML = oHttp.responseText

Compile throws up an error "Invalid use of property' with the line
Code:
        Set html.body.innerHTML = oHttp.responseText
with the .innerHTML highlighted. What's wrong with that?

If I comment it out, run and debug on the line above I can see the objects in the locals window, html.body.innerHTML and oHttp.responseText are both there and both are string types.

I've got the Microsoft XML Library 6.0 checked in the references and MSXML2.XMLHTTP60 is the right type for 6.0.

Cheers
