Excel/Extract the table from a website by VBA


Dear Aidan Heritage,

Please would you advise how to:
1/ extract the chart/table (at least the table) from a website, it seems that the chart/table is generated by JavaScript
2/ change to other date from selection "Date: November 15, 2012" in right hand side of website

You can find my code below for reference.  Many thanks.
   Dim appIE As Object

   Application.ScreenUpdating = False
   Set appIE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
   With appIE
       .Visible = False
       .navigate ""
   End With
   Do While appIE.Busy: Loop
   Application.Wait (Now + TimeValue("0:00:02"))

This isn't something I've done myself but I THINK you would be better using XMLHTTP to interface with the page - see for some possible suggestions on this - having not done it I cannot consider myself any form of expert on this I'm afraid.

I have provided first hand support since `95 for Microsoft Office majoring in Word and Excel - support for all versions from 2 onwards. I'm based in the UK, so please allow for time differences when asking me questions from other parts of the world!


My background is in the insurance industry and call centre areas, but have been called upon to provide many varied solutions.

I'm educated to UK A level standard, but as I left school some 30 years ago that is rather irrelevent - university of life has provided more of a background!
