I am new to this forum. I need to invoke IE browser from VB or Vbscript by passing a URL. for subsequent call i need to open a new tab of existing IE browser but for me a new instance of IE window gets opened. I even changed the settings in IE 7.0 but all in vain. Appreciate your help on this...
In firefox i found that by using firefox.exe -new tab http://www.hotmail.com we are able to open a url in new tab of firefox browser. similarly is there any provision in IE?
Thanks in advance
There is no difference in opening a new tab or a new window. A new tab is just a new window that is hosted by the same iexplore.exe instance.

I successfully use the following code to open multiple web sites in mulitple tabs:
Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
For I = 0 to 2
Set objIE = Wscript.CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application","objIE_")
objIE.Visible = True
Set objShell = Nothing
Set objIE = Nothing
