Thumbs up Followhyperlink to Different Browser

I have a procedure that creates a file that is to be uploaded through a website. I use the following to open that web page.

Application.FollowHyperlink "http://page1.ohio.gov/Pages/default.aspx"

We are currently using IE as our default browser. This opens that page in IE. However, that site no longer supports IE programming and we can no longer log into it. We can if we use Firefox. Is there a way to change the above line of code that would open Firefox without changing our default web browser from IE?

Thank you.

Re: Followhyperlink to Different Browser

Daniel Pineault has some code that should do what you want https://www.devhut.net/2018/02/01/vb...irefox-chrome/

However Access insists on using IE for some actions no matter what browser you select.
Best of luck

Re: Followhyperlink to Different Browser

I was not able to use that. I need something simpler.

Thank you.

Re: Followhyperlink to Different Browser

Why is that too difficult?
The code just needs to be imported into your app.

I would be very surprised if you find anything easier than that.

Thank you.
So pick a browser and run that with the url as a parameter, just as that code does.?
