I've been hacking around VBA since Office 95
Most of my code is that old and has worked flawlessly up to 2003
I recall my code working in 2007 [OS was XP] as well but lost that in a fire.
So years back I got 2010 and every football preseason I work
countless hours trying to migrate my code only to retreat and
continue using ver.2003

This URL works as expected with the Power Query feature, selecting Table 1.

http://g.sportsdatabase.com/nfl/que...ite=home+and+season=2018&submit=++S+D+Q+L+!++

However, in VBA code or manually building a web query it does not work.
A 1004 error in VBA , at .Refresh BackgroundQuery:=False ,,,, or unable
to open / can not download when using the GUI method.
Additionally, when the IE pops up I must cancel out of several script errors in both 2003 and 2010, but still 2003 is successful and 2010 is not.
Code:
Sub Button1_Click()
  Dim f As Worksheet
     
    Set f = Sheets("Sheet1")
    With f.Range("A10:Y544").Clear
    End With

    Dim objWeb As QueryTable
    Dim sWebTable As String

    sWebTable = 4
  
    Set objWeb = Sheets("Sheet1").QueryTables.Add( _
    Connection:="URL;http://g.sportsdatabase.com/nfl/query?output=default&sdql=week%2C+date%2C+team%2C+o%3Ateam%2C+line+%40+week%3D1++and+site%3Dhome+and+season%3D2018&submit=++S+D+Q+L+%21++", _
    Destination:=Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A10"))
   
    With objWeb

                .FieldNames = False
                .RowNumbers = False
                .FillAdjacentFormulas = False
                .PreserveFormatting = True
                .RefreshOnFileOpen = False
                .BackgroundQuery = True
                .RefreshStyle = xlInsertDeleteCells
                .SavePassword = False
                .SaveData = True  'was true 20120627
                .AdjustColumnWidth = False
                .RefreshPeriod = 0
                .WebSelectionType = xlSpecifiedTables
                .WebFormatting = xlWebFormattingNone
                .WebTables = sWebTable
                .WebPreFormattedTextToColumns = True
                .WebConsecutiveDelimitersAsOne = True
                .WebSingleBlockTextImport = False
                .WebDisableDateRecognition = True 'try false
                .WebDisableRedirections = False
                .Refresh BackgroundQuery:=False  ' was false


        
    End With
    Set objWeb = Nothing

End Sub

My gut tells me this is a security issue and every year I google the same
sequrity options and regedits over and over to no avail. But then why does the
Power Query work just fine?

Thanks for reading

Win 7 Pro 64
