QueryTable.WebTables property (Excel)

Returns or sets a comma-delimited list of table names or table index numbers when you import a webpage into a query table. Read/write String.



expression A variable that represents a QueryTable object.


Use this property only when the query table's QueryType property is set to xlWebQuery, the query returns an HTML document, and the value of the WebSelectionType property is xlSpecifiedTables.

If you import data by using the user interface, data from a web query or a text query is imported as a QueryTable object, while all other external data is imported as a ListObject object.

If you import data by using the object model, data from a web query or a text query must be imported as a QueryTable, while all other external data can be imported as either a ListObject or a QueryTable.

The WebTables property applies only to QueryTable objects.


This example adds a new web query table to the first worksheet in the first workbook, and then imports data from the first and second tables on the webpage.

Set shFirstQtr = Workbooks(1).Worksheets(1) 
Set qtQtrResults = shFirstQtr.QueryTables _ 
 .Add(Connection := "URL;https://datasvr/98q1/19980331.htm", _ 
 Destination := shFirstQtr.Cells(1,1)) 
With qtQtrResults 
 .WebFormatting = xlNone 
 .WebSelectionType = xlSpecifiedTables 
 .WebTables = "1,2" 
End With
