In presentations when you need to present some data for which you need to extract them from online document, presentation, or webpage and if they are in the form of table and you want them on your Excel sheet. But if the data is in form of HTML page and has NOT been created by ASP, PHP, or some other scripting language and moreover if you are an Internet Explorer 6 user then you just simply need to right-click on the and look for “Export to Microsoft Excel.” If you get this option then you can import if all these conditions are true and then you need to click on the menu item and after few prompts the contents will be imported to your Excel file.

But if the page is scripted and you only need a portion of the table to include in your excel sheet then the above solution will not work. You then need to just convert the html file by opening the Excel (File – Open) and then save it as xlsx file from Excel (File – Save as).

To do this using the VBA coding you need to use:

Sub Open_HTML_Save_XLSX()


    Workbooks.Open Filename:=”C:\Temp\Example.html”

    ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= _

        “C:\Temp\Example.xlsx”, FileFormat:= _



End Sub

You can even use the Drag-and-Drop function of Windows as it works very well. It is quick and easy as long as you are willing to keep your finger parked on the left mouse button while Windows does the rest of the work.
