Default IE explorer document

I left a query in the VB section, but an answer has not yet surfaced. So, maybe one of you will help. I need to know how to refer to the open IE document in VB6. I want to fetch some values from it and poke them into a VB6 application. Thanks for your help.

I don't field questions in the VB6 forum and posting your query here is pretty off base since VB6 != ASP.NET but, in any event, the way I preform a screen scrape is to use the HttpRequest and HttpResponse objects to initiate a connection to XYZ webpage. (I am not 100% sure of the objects you would use in VB6)

The problem with this approach is that the HttpResponse object is going to contain the entire output of XYZ page (so everything from <html> to </html> for example) so your app would have to parse the Response stream to get the necessary values.

hth.
