Getting text from IE object

Getting text from IE object

Getting text from IE object

OK, I've mastered opening IE as an object.
Now I need to return text from the documnet as a string.
I have a variable string 'strX' which will also appear in my oblect source code. I need to find it in my IE object and return the text following (perhaps innerText?)
Any idea how to searcht he document and get htis back?

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx = strX

<TD noWrap></TD>
    <TD noWrap>xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx</TD>
      <table border=0 width="100%" cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0>
        <tr><td width="99%">This is the text I need to return as a string.</td>

RE: Getting text from IE object

bill not that I have done alot with this but if you can get IE as a object try saving the page as text and using you app to search for the info in the textfile rather than the webpage
