These are more complicated tables. It would be best to extract the tables line by line, as this gives you more flexibility with the data formatting and cleaning.

All three tables you mention can be extracted this way. As a starting point for your script and macro code you can use our Google example at http://forum.iopus.com/viewtopic.php?t=6

Instead of looping through the Google results, you loop over the lines of the table.

We can also create the specific scripts and macro for you. Please contact us at http://www.iopus.com/service/contact/ to discuss this if you are interested.
