I have an OPENED web site and I'd like to jump from a worksheet into that web site, without having to open it again. I'm trying to paste a number of IDs into a field in the Web site to look up their email and address but since I am limited to only 75 ids at a time I need to bounce back and forth copying 75 ids from the worksheet, jump into the web site, paste the data (and look up their information and save it as a PDF), then jump back to the Excel worksheet to copy the next 75 ids, again and again. How can I do this?

Thank you for your quick reply. Unfortunately, I am trying to jump to the already opened website from within a VBA macro to automate the process. Thanks for trying.

To clarify my request a bit. I have cell F1 which contains the code to Link to a website. In my macro, I execute: Range("F1").Hyperlinks(1).Follow and the link is opened. I minimize it after I have done what I need to do in the website and that gets me back into the macro. A few instructions later I am trying to jump back to the url but cannot do so without issuing the same command: Range("F1").Hyperlinks(1).Follow which open another screen but all I want to do is redisplay the already open url. Can't figure it out.

Hi, Roger Plant, sorry that there is no way to do this.

Sunny, thanks for the reply. Indicating that it couldn't be done gave me the incentive to "make it happen". With a combination of "AppActivate" and "Sendkeys" commands, I was able to accomplish my task of jumping from an Excel VBA macro where I copied a list of IDs over to a Chrome link where I pasted those IDs to get information about them, and then jump back to Excel to get the next batch of IDs. It's not the most efficient code BUT it does what I want very nicely. Thanks.
