circumventing internet explorer's cross-frame scripting

P: 4
(repost/edit from html forum)

hello -

i am using VBA within a microsoft access project to automate internet explorer. what i am doing is reading data from various frames of my company's web site (non-intranet) and loading it into a table. however, this cross-frame scripting security with IE is getting in the way. i can't even use VB to navigate to frames located on a different domain. the website in question uses framesets, not iframes.

question: how can i DISABLE the horrid nightmare that is the cross-frame scripting security measure in IE?

i have tried the following with no luck:

- adding all domains in question to my trusted zone
- HTA's
- VB's webbrowser control.

perhaps there is some way to re-write the HTML in the page before it is actually parsed and before IE's dreaded security protocols wake up and clamp down on the document?

i also understand that IE's security calls are passed through IInternetSecurityManager. does anyone know of a hack or a utility that i can use to possibly configure this with my own browser?

i have been looking for a work-around for this for over a year and am at the point now where i really need it soon. if anyone can help me with this then it would be the best ever.

thanks in advance.
