As far as I know, there isn't a reliable method.

One thing you can try is use .Sendkeys to simulate clicking a button etc. But this is unreliable at best.

Only reliable method that I now of without any manual intervention, requires VBA to interact with 3rd-party PDF software such as PDF Creator to convert HTML to PDF.
