    Scraping/Importing Table

    Hi all,

    I've been struggling with this, and wanted to see if someone might have a solution. I'm looking to import the lap by lap leaderboard at this address:

    http://www.nascar.com/en_us/sprint-c....raw_feed.html

    Of course, the table can't be imported automatically as Excel doesn't recognize it as a table so it requires a macro for sifting through the HTML. However, I'm fairly inexperienced with VBA currently and haven't been able to create a working macro for this purpose.

    It appears the table I want to grab here has the "pqrStatistic" id


    I would really appreciate any help with this. Thanks!


    Luke

    Hi Luke,

    You may be in luck with t his question. Excel now how a newer tool called Power Query (Get & Transform in 2016). In the 2010 version of Excel you will need to install the add-in. Then read this:

    I just looked at your url and can get 4 different tables from it.
    One test is worth a thousand opinions.

    Thanks Marvin for letting me know about this! Really awesome add-in. I'm kind of disappointed, the solution was almost too easy!
