Web scraping VBA but stuck


New Member
Hello Respectable Members,

I am trying to web scrape from a page but for that I need to log into an website inside another.

I have attached my VBA, if you open the excel an click on macro button it logs me onto the 1st website but then it needs to enter the following information onto the 2nd part of the login section:

Company number: 00161619
Authentication code: password

Because of confidentiality, I have not given the real password above but at least it should enter those login credential onto the 2nd part of the login detail section.

But for some reason, it logs me OK onto the 1st section and then does nothing to enter the above credential onto the 2nd part, if I can log into the 2nd part, I will then be able to scrape data.

I will appreciate if someone could help me with the above.

I have attached the VBA spreadsheet here.
