    If you working with VB.NET/ASP.NET you can use WebRequest object

    [code]
    Imports System.Net
    Public Class Form1

    Inherits System.Windows.Forms.Form

    #Region " Windows Form Designer generated code "

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
    Dim request As WebRequest = WebRequest.Create("http://www.yahoo1.com")
    Dim response As HttpWebResponse
    Dim strMes As String
    [color=Green]' If required by the server, set the credentials.[/color]
    request.Credentials = CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials
    [color=Green]' Get the response.[/color]
    Try
    response = CType(request.GetResponse(), HttpWebResponse)
    Catch ex As Exception
    strMes = ex.Message
    End Try
    If strMes = "" Then
    Me.TextBox1.Text() = response.StatusDescription
    Else
    MsgBox("Page www.yahoo1.com not found " & strMes)
    End If
    End Sub


    End Class
    [/code]
    If page not exisist you will received Error: [color=Blue]"The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found."[/color]

    I know you can do something like that using Java but not sure about JavaScript or VB 6.
