I am looking to read the source code for a website that keeps the stats for a hockey league in Sweden
For other sites i can use the code below and it works fine, but the site i am using to get the Sweden stats seem to keep the data in some type of a Java app (sorry still somewhat of a newbie) and doesn't work the same as the others
when i veiw the source code just by right clicking the page all the data i want shows up. When i try to use my code it doesn't get the stuff i want.
I have tried both objDoc.body.innerHTML and objDoc.body.outerHTML and i get different results but not the same as right clicking on the page and viewing the source, is there another command that i can use to get it all?
the website is
Sub Get_Stats() Const strURIpre As String = [url] Set ie = CreateObject("internetexplorer.application") ie.Navigate strURIpre Do If ie.ReadyState = 4 Then ie.Visible = False Exit Do Else
I need to do seems quite simple, I want to grab the source of a webpage into a string (where I'll then to some fiddling about with it to strip it down to the information which I need). Currently I'm trying to do it using the webbrowser object and meddling around with the .document properties, but I can't figure it out.
I need to check a website daily to see if a link has been updated. If it has been updated, the beginning of the link changes to a different date. Example: today link is www.10212009dave.com and tomorrow link may be www.10222009dave.com. Lets say the link is on www.gugg.com. The link does not change everyday, but I think a good way to see if it has been updated is to search through the source code in the html for that link.
Thus I would put www.10212009dave.com into cell A1 and tell excel to search the source code on www.gugg.com, and if the contents of cell A1 is NOT found, I'd display a message box stating the link has been updated.
I have copied a drop down value from a HTML page to excel and this drop down is showing up in execl and I am unable to delete it by either deleting the rows or columns. What do I do to remove the dropdown value in the sheet?
Getting some web page data into Excel 2010 using VBA. My scenario however is set up with the following titles in cell A1, B1, C1, D1 and E1 : POST CODE, OUTLET, ADDRESS, TELEPHONE, EMAIL
The result I want to achieve is I enter a post code into cell A2 for example, Excel then uses IE to navigate to the relevant web page as defined in the VBA code. I then want the following to happen:
The InnerText of the web page's h1 tag is then inserted into the OUTLET cell (B2)The first instance of the p tag is then inserted into the ADDRESS cell (C2)The second instance of the p tag is then inserted into the TELEPHONE cell (D2)The third instance of the p tag is then inserted into the EMAIL cell (E2)
All instances of the p tag are contained in a div element called div class="adBox_content" . There are also 5 other DIVs above that DIV in the hierarchy.
Using the YouTube tutorial link, the method has worked for me using the getElementsByTagName("h1").innerText
However, when I try adding a second getElementsByTagName("p")(01).innerText the whole thing fails.
So I'm left with two problems; I can't make the VBA get more than one element at a time from the page, I can only either have the h1 or the first instance of the p tag. I've tried all the getElementBy methods and none of them seem to work in getting the second and third instances to show.
I also need the code to make the data be put on the same row ONLY as where the post code was entered. In this scenario for example of entering a post code into A2, the OUTLET needs to land in cell B2 only, ADDRESS C3 only etc.
By following the youtube tutorial above by giving the cells names to refer to in the code, the data ends up being inputted in all further rows with identical cell names. I need it to not do that.
The code is needed for around 300 rows of post codes that will be entered and refreshed every week or so.
I have previously used the following code to successfully pull out IE webpage source code for string manipulation.
Its a crude example to demonstrate the principle:
Public Declare Sub Sleep Lib "kernel32" (ByVal dwMilliseconds As Long) Public IE As Object Sub Sample() Set IE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application") IE.Visible = True
However when I substitute in a Google websites address into the IE.Navigate command, the code runs to the "Source_Code = IE.document ...." line then flags up a Microsoft Visual Basic error. "Run-time error '438': Object doesn't support this property or method"
The webpage that I am trying to access is a confidential company site, so you won't be able to access it yourself, but starts with [URL] ......
The one thing that I have noticed about this website is the Privacy Report icon in the lower right status window (Picture of an eye with a restricted symbol in front). I don't know whether this is the cause of my problem, or purely an incidental observation.
Is there something peculiar with Google sites that means that the source code cannot be extracted in general, or is this an issue specific to my site ? Does the Privacy Report icon have any relevance, and if so how do I switch that off ?
When I view a sheet under Page Break Preview, it shows the Page numbers in the centre of the Page. While I am aware that it would not print the page number I was wondering if there is an option to remove/hide the page numbers.
I have some code that parses an html table. I want to put in error handling in case the format of the page changes or the internet page is unavailable. I am testing without an internet connection and the run time error is not being branched off to the error handler and is fatally ending the macro. This is true also if I raise an error manually.
Private Sub ParseInjuryPage() On Error Goto ErrorHandl Dim strPage As String Dim webIE As SHDocVw.InternetExplorer Dim myURL As String Dim tableBeg As Long Dim tableEnd As Long Dim RowBeg As Long Dim rowEnd As Long Dim cellBeg As Long Dim cellEnd As Long Dim strBeg As Long Dim strEnd As Long Dim myCell As Range Dim rowNum As Integer With Sheets("INJ") Set myCell = .Range("A2") .Range("A:F").Value = vbNullString rowNum = 2 Set webIE = New SHDocVw.InternetExplorer myURL = "http://www.sportsline.com/nfl/injuries" webIE.Navigate myURL Do Until webIE.ReadyState = READYSTATE_COMPLETE DoEvents Loop strPage = webIE.Document.body.innerhtml...................................
I have a sheet that changes the number of columns based on data from other sheets. This is the only sheet in the workbook that I will print out every day. I have it set right now to fit all columns on one page, however sometimes this will result in the bottom 1/3rd of the sheet not being used. If I use fit all rows on one page, then some of the columns will get cut off. Is there a way to scale in both directions? My guess is there is not, but I thought I would ask because it would work great for me if I could.
I have a report that I use and right now I have a command button that prints the report x2. What I would like to do is to have it print one in color and one in grayscale. I could do this I think with two different buttons, but I would like to utilize just one. I tried creating a macro but it did not pick up the fact that I changed the properties to black and white.
I am looking for a formula that will take data from one page and graph it on another page. The data I am trying to graph is arranged like so:
1 q 2009.05.01 2 w 2009.05.02 3 w 2009.05.01 4 q 2009.05.01
I am looking for something that will look at column A and if the answer is "q" and then look at column B and if the answer is "2009.05.01" Excel will take that and count it in a specific cell on another page. In the case above, I want Excel to give me the answer of "2" in a designated cell.
I have a workbook that has 9 different tabs in it. Once all the information has been completed throughout the workbook, is there a code that could transfer specific data on each page to a different colum on that same page? I need to do this for 9 pages at one time. The information is listed differently on each page. I need to transfer data from the current data column to the previous data column once the entire workbook has been filed out.
how to get rid of the page numbers that appear when using page break preview mode. The page numbers appear in large grey font in the middle of each page and sometimes makes it difficult to read cells. Can I use this view with all the same functionality without that one feature?
I need a macro that will print a hidden page that is linked to the page I have active.
It needs to be able to find the correct hidden page that corresponds to the active page because there are multilple pairs of the hidden/visible pages. The name of the hidden page is the same as the visible one with "printout" added to the end. When created, the sheet code names are sheetn and sheetm; n and m being consecutive numbers.
I have a report that was created for 2005 that contains two worksheets: a "source data" worksheet and a " pivot table" worksheet. I cleared out the 2005 data in the "source data" worksheet and replaced it with 2006 data...after this I refreshed the Pivot Table and everything seemed fine. When looking at the file size I noticed that it was almost twice its original size....upon further investigation I found that the Pivot Table was internally holding onto the old source data (the "Show" functionality of the rows/columns in the table lists the 2005 row/column headers as well as the 2006 headers....even though no data from 2005 is shown in the Pivot Table).
Does anyone know how to purge the old data from the internal Pivot Table memory?
I hope this is enough information....let me know if you need more.
Working with 2000 Excel is bringing some new chalanges. I see things are done different. I am trying now to keep my header to repeat from page to page.
For example I have a header that may say something like: People, numbers, date, ect. And there are so many new rows they go on for pages long. How can I keep my header on the top of each page when it prints out on paper.
Assume that calculation is set to automatic and not manual, then is every formula on a page updated when any value on the page is changed, or only when the values in the cells pertaining to a particular formula change?
For instance, if cells a1-a10 have values and in a11 is a sum a1-a10 formula, and in b1-b10 are values and a sum b1-b10 formula in b11, if I change a value in range b1-b10 but do not change any values in a1-a10,then as well as the formula in b11 updating will the formula in a11 recalculate or does excel keep track of which cells have changed and thus is aware that the formula in a11 does not need to be recalculated?
What I want to do, is to populate the Lois, Beth, Kelly and Shelley pages with the rows from the Que page when they get assigned to one of them. I tried to program then off of a different example in the forum. It didn't work. Will include the copy.
How can I using VBA do HTML scraping? A site which I have to use to update some data on a spreadsheet does not offer any web services. I have to copy data from the spreadsheet one cell at a time, paste into the search field and look at the results and decide what kind of modification is needed for that piece of data.
If VBA can do HTML scraping here is what I thought I could do. For each of the data in the cell, I need to go to a search field on a website, manually enter the values and hit search. Then the browser generates a url like "http://www.mysite.com/search?hl=en&q=SNX018923" and returns the result as an HTML page. How can I use vba so that I can automate this process of generating the url and load the returned html text into a variable. Then I can use the script to search for a pattern of text and do something to the active cell from where the data was taken. *nix has a curl command. What is the equivalent of curl in VBA? How do I use it to get the result I am trying to acheive?
