Occasional Contributor

Hello.

I'm trying to develop a web crawler with VBA which helps me download data from the specific webpage , what i want to do is make in VBA to upload a excel file with product numbers and then to crawl , recently i developed a very easy Crawler which is not a lot specific i have the code , and if someone could change it and make it for specific crawler.

I want from this page : https://www.digikey.com/en/products/detail/3m-tc/3M-1776-12-X-12-6-PK/12144741 to crawl only the Product Attributes.

Dim ieObj As InternetExplorer

Dim htmlEle As IHTMLElement

Dim i As Integer

i = 1

Set ieObj = New InternetExplorer

ieObj.Visible = True

ieObj.navigate "https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_and_dependencies_by_population"

Application.Wait Now + TimeValue("00:00:05")

For Each htmlEle In ieObj.document.getelementbyclassname("wikitable")(0).getelementsbytagename("tr")

With ActiveSheet

.Range("A" & i).Value = htmlEle.Children(0).textContent

.Range("B" & i).Value = htmlEle.Children(1).textContent

.Range("C" & i).Value = htmlEle.Children(2).textContent

.Range("D" & i).Value = htmlEle.Children(3).textContent
