Paste/parse HTML into excel

randys106 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I hate when what should be simple is complicated.  

I want to paste the HTML from the body of a website into my spreadsheet.  When I go to the website, view the source, copy it, and paste it to a cell, the HTML is parsed like I need it (every line in a different cell).  But from VBA when I paste all the HTML is in one cell.  How do I fix this?

Here is my code and spreadsheet.  Note that there are two sheets (one like VBA gives it to me, one like I want it to be).

Dim IE As Object

Set IE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
IE.Navigate "http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=3639"

Do Until IE.ReadyState = 4: DoEvents: Loop

Sheets(1).Range("A1").Value = IE.document.Body.innerHTML
