VBA Code to Run Search on the New York State eCourts Site

December 4, 2016

Here's some VBA code posted below  that I edited to run a search for a case number on the web site of New York State Unified Court System - at least for cases filed with the New York Supreme Court - the court of original jurisdiction for most civil cases in New York.    



The VBA code will search for the index number you have listed in cell A2 of Sheet1.    




This is based on the code posted to mrexcel.com by snowboy001.    Insert it in a module in the VBA Project list of your workbook and give it a try.   You will have to enter the CAPTCHA ("Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart") code for the NYS court site before proceeding.




Note that there is a brief delay between the initial input of the case number and the move to the case details page.



I'm hoping this will lead to bigger things soon . . . 


Sub Login()
Dim appIE As InternetExplorer
Dim sURL As String
Dim UserN As Variant, Pw As Variant
Dim Element As HTMLButtonElement
Dim btnInput As MSHTML.HTMLInputElement
Dim ElementCol As MSHTML.IHTMLElementCollection
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set appIE = New InternetExplorer
sURL = "https://iapps.courts.state.ny.us/webcivil/FCASSearch?param=I"
With appIE
    .navigate sURL
    .Visible = True
End With
Do While appIE.Busy
Application.Wait (Now + #12:00:05 AM#)
Set UserN = appIE.document.getElementsByName("txtIndex")
If Not UserN Is Nothing Then
    UserN(0).Value = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A2")

End If

Set ElementCol = appIE.document.getElementsByTagName("btnFindCase")
With appIE
    End With
Do While appIE.Busy
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
Set appIE = Nothing

End Sub
