Runtime error 438 while importing data in excel from secured website using VBA

0 votes

I am trying to import some data in MS excel from a website (login ID & password have been provided to me) using the following VBA code (downloaded from another website)

Sub GetTable()

 Dim ieApp As InternetExplorer
 Dim ieDoc As Object
 Dim ieTable As Object
 Dim clip As DataObject

 'create a new instance of ie
 Set ieApp = New InternetExplorer

 'you don’t need this, but it’s good for debugging
 ieApp.Visible = True

 'assume we’re not logged in and just go directly to the login page
 ieApp.Navigate "http://cms.indianrail.gov.in/CMSREPORT/JSP/rpt/LoginAction.do?hmode=loginPage"
 Do While ieApp.Busy: DoEvents: Loop
 Do Until ieApp.ReadyState = READYSTATE_COMPLETE: DoEvents: Loop

 Set ieDoc = ieApp.Document

 'fill in the login form – View Source from your browser to get the control names
 With ieDoc.forms(0)
    .userType.Value = "1"
     .userId.Value = "rlbdgs"
     .userPassword.Value = "123"
     .submit
 End With
 Do While ieApp.Busy: DoEvents: Loop
 Do Until ieApp.ReadyState = READYSTATE_COMPLETE: DoEvents: Loop

 'now that we’re in, go to the page we want
 ieApp.Navigate "http://cms.indianrail.gov.in/CMSREPORT/JSP/rpt/LoginAction.do?hmode=login"
 Do While ieApp.Busy: DoEvents: Loop
 Do Until ieApp.ReadyState = READYSTATE_COMPLETE: DoEvents: Loop

 'get the table based on the table’s id
 Set ieDoc = ieApp.Document
 Set ieTable = ieDoc.all.Item("sampletable")

 'copy the tables html to the clipboard and paste to teh sheet
 If Not ieTable Is Nothing Then
     Set clip = New DataObject
     clip.SetText "<html>" & ieTable.outerHTML & "</html>"
     clip.PutInClipboard
     Sheet1.Select
     Sheet1.Range("A1").Select
     Sheet1.PasteSpecial "Unicode Text"
 End If

 'close 'er up
 ieApp.Quit
 Set ieApp = Nothing

 End Sub

While i am trying to run the Code, I am getting 'Runtime error 438 Object doesn't support this property or method' at this area

 With ieDoc.forms(0)
    .userType.Value = "1"
     .userId.Value = "rlbdgs"
     .userPassword.Value = "123"
     .submit
 End With

Source code of login page is as under:

Replace

With ieDoc.forms(0)
   .userType.Value = "1"
    .UserId.Value = "rlbdgs"
    .userPassword.Value = "123"
    .submit
End With

with

With ieDoc
    .getElementById("userId").setAttribute "value", "rlbdgs"
    .getElementById("userPassword").setAttribute "value", "123"

    '~~> This will select the 2nd radio button as it is `0` based
    .getElementsByName("userType")(1).Checked = True

    .getElementById("hmode").Click
End With
