Last year using Excel 2010 I had web page downloads to worksheets upon opening the worksheets. This year my company upgraded to 2016 and I was getting errors on my refreshes so I am attempting to create a new worksheets with new links to the web pages for download. But Excel 2016 is WAY different than Excel 2010. I go to Get & Transform Data and choose from Web and enter the url. The importing comes up in tables and while the data I want to copy is in the tables when I try to load it the option "to existing worksheet" A1 cell is grayed out. I then choose a table and while it does add it to a new worksheet when i try to manipulate the data I get the error that the network connection has been lost or it puts it into a query worksheet. I need just the basics again! Screen scrape a web page into text in a worksheet then when I open the workbook it refreshes the data.

Waterfall charts in Excel?
Office 365 customers have access to Waterfall charts since late 2016. They were added to Excel 2019.

Thank You bu I am not completely following you. When I try doing "load to" and "only create connection" I get this. I think I need more detailed steps.

maybe you should show the url, will be much easier

btw. if you choose: Only create connection nothing should be loaded to the sheet
try to delete this green table and check what is under Query Document (now: 1 row loaded)
