i am having a really hard time trying to figure out a way of extracting the data from an html table into excel. With a simple table it is easy - i loop thru each of the table cells within each row and write the contents to an excel cells object (actually a range object created from the usual method; createobject("excel.application")...blah, blah).<BR>Now i am trying to extract data from a more complex html table; ie one with split cells, and i am now stuck.<BR>i would be extremely gratefull for any ideas.
