    Power Query - Parameter not working

    Hi,

    I run the query and a parameter box opens where I want to be able to enter a team abbreviation to bring up the statistics for that team. I've created a parameter called club. I've attached the query. Can anyone show me what I'm doing wrong to bring up this error? Thank you


    An error occurred in the ‘’ query. DataSource.Error: The remote server return an HTTP status code '404' when trying to access 'https://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/club/2017.shtml'.
    Details:
    DataSourceKind=Web
    DataSourcePath=https://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/club/2017.shtml
    Url=https://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/club/2017.shtml

    Re: Power Query - Parameter not working

    I am looking to get the small table to show up as a value within my workbook. I have done this with other sites and able to pull up the data but for some reason I cannot get this table to pull the data within Excel. The second URL that you tried is irrelevant and I removed it to prevent any confusion. Any help so that I can pull this data would be very helpful and appreciated.
