Hi all


Looking for a bit of advice as I need to extract some tables from web pages (nothing illegal)


I have been looking for a free easy to use Excel web scrapper but they all seem to be pointing to specific web data (eg Yellow Pages) and have been advised to use Microsoft Power Query which I have downloaded and installed.


I have had a quick look and it looks quite a powerful tool but has anyone ever used this tool. The MS instructions are not meant for the simple brained operator who has not got 10 A levels and a degree in IT


Any help would be very much appreciated.


Note .. I am not a novice Excel user. I can advanced functions and program with both Macro and VB language

The easiest one and widely open source (comes with Linux is available on Mac, and windows too with some perseverance.


it\s called `wget`


In short its a command line web client with the capability to recursively download content so it follows links. If I remember rightly the `wget -f http://www.ineedmysiteback.com/` will recursively download the site.
