Populate Search Box and then Scrape Web Site for result

  • I am trying to automate the 'Search' box on the following website "https://www.blackwoods.com.au". I have tried to modify original source code from "xl-searchbot.xlsm" from http://automatetheweb.net/", but having no luck in actually getting the 'Search' box to be populated. My understanding of the html and DOM structure is limited and I have being trying for the last 2 days with no luck.

    I would aApprecaite any help or advise.
