    I know these are easy, but I've had a headache over them and I was hoping someone may know the answer.

    First, is there a way to close excel through VBA? All I can get to close is a workbook, but I need Excel itself to close...

    And second, is there a way possible to clear the addresses out of the default web browser's (ie5, aol, whatever...) drop down explorer bar using VBA? you know, the one at the top of the browser that show the recent web sites you've been to? I know how to delete file, but I can't find where those are stored... when i clear the history folder, the addreses still appear...

    Thanks to anyone who can help (c:

    Well the first one is fairly straightforward:-

    Application.Quit

    As for the second bit, not so sure. IE can be programatically controlled through automation but you wouldn't be able to use the same techniques with non Microsoft products such as Netscape.

    Hi

    IE like Java and HTML not VB or VBA, not know a fix to this...

    Netscape will not like VBA or VB, regardless. MS software has a habbit of likeing only Microsoft software, all different languages.

    Netscape will java and HTML aswell as these languages are kinda web standraads.
