Navigating Nested Tables and Extracting Data

25 May 2017, 12:22

I am trying to copy the text out of the first column of every row in a table on a website. I am having trouble getting to the actual table. The structure of the site to the table is as follows:

<html>
<body>
<form>
<div>
<div>
<div>
<table> //this is not the table I'm interested in
<tbody>
<tr>
<td>
<table>
<tbody>
<tr> begin rows of data I am trying to extract from
......
......

My attempt at it is as follows:

Code: Select all


outerTable := wb.document.getElementById("outerTableID").getElementsByTagName("tbody")[0].getElementsByTagName("tr")[2].getElementsByTagName("td")

Table := outT.getElementById("innerTableID").getElementsByTagName("tbody").getElementsByTagName("tr")[1].innertext
