I am trying to create a dynamic QueryTable connection. The site I am using displays a table of data as well as some filters. Everytime you change the filter, the webpage reloads with different data. I need to import these various data tables into Excel. How can I automate this via VBA? I know how to set up a QueryTables via VBA... and I know how to post parameters to a website via the Navigate() function... but I need a something that is a combination of the two... I hope this is clear. If not, below is a written example of what I am trying to do:


1. Submit parameters to website
2. Take response and import data to worksheet
3. Submit another parameter to website
4. Take response and import data to worksheet...

A web query may work if the parameters appear in the URL (query string) - it's just a matter of constructing the URL with the required parameters. Otherwise use IE automation and the HTML object library to manipulate the web site and retrieve the data.

John,
Unfortunately the web form only accepts post parameters, so I can't dynamically change the URL. So, what is the best way to get the data out of the page and into Excel? Parse the HTML for the table I need? Luckily, all of the data I need is in a table that has an ID. What is the best way to get a table and put it into Excel?
