    What if I want to get only, lets say 4 columns of table, not entirely table?

    If anyone reading this has a way to pull a simple piece of html into an Excel cell WITHOUT the use of the web query process, please contact me @ BusinessHut.com I have a URL in column A and, for example, just want to pull the Title element into column B. VBA, macros, and custom functions are all welcome. Thanks!
