Use DebugBar "Spy" - that icon in the toolbar that looks like an eye.

Dear Dale,

I can locate the field name. Thank a lot!

However, I want to change the field Dem_TaxId and Dem_TaxIdType with attached script and fail. I would like to see your professional advice

Sorry, I attached the wrong file. Please see Customer IDSSN.zip

Certainly can't run your test since these are private pages, but I'd suggest that you need to use _IEAttach, DialogBox to attach to the popup before you can access the fields you are trying to change.

Dear Dale,

Thank for your advice,

However, I find my code stops on after the script line " _IELinkClickByText($oIE, "Edit")" (click to activate the Dialog Box). After investigation, the code is actually pended on IE.au3 Line 558 (_IELoadWait function).

_IELinkClickByText ($oIE, "Contacts")

_IELinkClickByText($oIE, "Edit")

;--Edit Contact PopUp------------------------------------------------

$oPopup = _IEAttach("Edit Contact", "DialogBox")

$o_form = _IEFormGetCollection ($oPopup, "DEM_Form")

$o_TaxId = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($o_form, "Dem_TaxId")

$o_TaxIdType = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($o_form, "Dem_TaxIdType")

_IEFormElementSetValue ($o_TaxId, $SSN)

_IEFormElementOptionselect ($o_TaxIdType,"SSN", 1, "byText")

$o_OK_Button = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($o_form, "Dem_SaveButton1")

_IEAction ($o_OK_Button, "click")

If your analysis is correct, use the NoWait parameter with _IELinkClickByText

Dear Dale,

The script is still pending after I change the setting to "_IELinkClickByText($oIE, "Edit",0,0)"

The script can only resume after I dismiss the dialog box.

_IELinkClickByText ($oIE, "Contacts")

_IELinkClickByText($oIE, "Edit",0,0)

;--Edit Contact PopUp------------------------------------------------

$oPopup = _IEAttach("Edit Contact", "DialogBox")

$o_form = _IEFormGetCollection ($oPopup, "DEM_Form")

$o_TaxId = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($o_form, "Dem_TaxId")

$o_TaxIdType = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($o_form, "Dem_TaxIdType")
