grabbing data off web pages using excel macro

grabbing data off web pages using excel macro

grabbing data off web pages using excel macro

I can easily grab a web page and put it into Excel, if I know the URL.

I want to 'construct' the URL using the
   With ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add(Connection:="URL;http://www.???????


VB doesn't apparently parse a variable within this command - so I can't write this as Add(Connection:= and then use a variable.

Is there a workaround?

If I knew where the macro scripts are located I could write the macro 'on the fly' then call it but I suspect that the macros are all scrunched up in a file somewhere and maybe not accessible.

Or maybe there's another command designed to accept parameters within it?

Thanks in advance...


RE: grabbing data off web pages using excel macro


Why did you ask this question in this Attachmate forum?

This is a forum707: VBA Visual Basic for Applications (Microsoft) question.

However a solution..


   With ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add(Connection:="URL;http://www." & YourVariable & ")"
