I just keep getting told that there is no match.

The control in question is within the window.

Its not actually an IE window, its an application with the Internet Explorer_Server; INSTANCE:3 embedded in it as a text box.

Use _IEAttach with "embedded" and $i_instance

Use of "$i_instance" with the "embedded" mode: used to return a reference to a specific instance of a WebBrowser and is particularly useful when more than one exists in a particular window. If you pass a window title in $s_string using embedded mode, only the first window matching that title will be used. If the WebBrowser control you desire is in another window you must pass the HWnd of that window rather than the title, or use the advanced Window Title selection syntax available to the standard Win* functions.

I love you! This has saved me sooooo much time. Do you have a charity in need of a donation?
