Posted by Andrew Gould on 07 May 2019

In this video you'll learn how to write VBA code to click links on a webpage to view different tables and then scrape the contents of those tables into new Excel worksheets.

You can download any files that you need to follow the video here.

You can increase the size of the video:

Full screen mode for YouTube

You can view the video in full screen mode as shown on the left, using the icon at the bottom right of the frame.

You can also increase the quality of the video:

Changing resolution

You can improve the resolution of the video using another icon at the bottom right of the frame. This will slow down the connection speed, but increase the display and sound quality. This icon only becomes visible when you start playing the video.

Finally, if nothing happens when you play the video, check that you're not using IE in compatibility view.

Hi Luis,

The most likely reason for this is that the website has removed the information for that particular tournament - this is one of the main problems with making examples for current events: it's inevitably out-of-date very quickly!

You can find lots of other examples of the same type of page on the same website such as this one https://www.oddschecker.com/golf/open-championship/2019-open-championship/winner which I've just tested and works in the same way as the example shown in the video.

I hope that helps!
