Does this work for you?

Am I missing a library reference?

well, that was easy, thanks!

Can I ask, on the most basic level, what is this doing, going in and looking for a table and just grabbing it? What if there were 2 tables on the page?

Basically, the '.WebSelectionType' is where it specifies which table to retrieve.  You can set it to 'xlSpecifiedTables' then specify which tables using the '.WebTables' property.
