Hey,

I'm trying to obtain the id's of rows in a table on a website (the url is in the code). My problem is that I can't find the table. When I run the code it tells me that only one table exist, and that is not the one I'am looking for. Can someone please explain to me why it only returns the last table?

If for any need the XPath of the table is (google chrome): //*[@id="fs-fixtures"]/table/tbody

Best regards
Lars

Code:
Sub BrowseTableIds()
    Dim XMLPage As New MSXML2.XMLHTTP60
    Dim HTMLDoc As New MSHTML.HTMLDocument
    Dim HTMLTables As MSHTML.IHTMLElementCollection
    Dim HTMLTable As MSHTML.IHTMLElement
    
    XMLPage.Open "GET", "http://www.flashscore.dk/fodbold/england/premier-league/kommende/", False
    XMLPage.send
    
    HTMLDoc.body.innerHTML = XMLPage.responseText
    
    Set HTMLTables = HTMLDoc.getElementsByTagName("table")
    
    For Each HTMLTable In HTMLTables
         Debug.Print HTMLTable.ID, HTMLTable.className
    Next HTMLTable


    Debug.Print HTMLTables.Length
End Sub
