    Please don't cross post. It wastes community member's time. Sometimes it takes a lot of effort to provide a solution. When you cross post this effort is duplicated, which is very disrespectful to the people who are working on a solution....considering the question could very likely have already been answered on another forum.

    Change this section of code to this and report back:

    It's difficult to troubleshoot IE automation without html source code. Hopefully this helps you identify the issue, but I'm guessing it will just bring more questions.

    If you get the msgbox then your link is being found correctly and your click code is the issue....otherwise the find the Link portion of the code is wrong....

    If the click code is wrong maybe consider trying this:

    Set myLinks = ie.document.getElementsByTagName("a") 
        For Each mySingleLink In myLinks 
            If mySingleLink.innerText = "OT Claim Form (May 2016 Payroll)" Then 
            End If

    Hello mrmmickle1...thanks a lot for the continual support...really owe you this if we can solve...i tried the code you recommended but it only open the intranet site and then do nothing....second code also got the same i am sharing you the html code as per request, hope it can help...thanks a lot in advance.
    The flow is like this actually, every end of the month we open the intranet site and then click the download link of the over time form. The download link name is "OT Claim Form (May 2016 Payroll)" and keep changing the link name depends on the month. But let me handle on the changing names...The only think i need is how the vba excel code to automatic open the intranet and click the download link name...thanks

    <tr class="fliesstext " valign="top" bgcolor="#ffffff"><td width="5%" valign="top" style="vertical-align:top"></td>
    <td valign="top" style="width:412px;vertical-align:top"><div><a href="/location/place/place/20Form/OT_May_16.xls" target="_blank">OT Claim Form (May 2016 Payroll)</a></div></td></tr>
    <tr class="fliesstext " valign="top" bgcolor="#eeeeee"><td width="5%" valign="top" style="vertical-align:top"><span></span><span></span></td>

    Did the msgbox appear when you ran the first code snippet? only open the intranet then nothing happen next.
