Hi,

You can use this code...

Sub Inport()
    With ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add(Connection:="URL;http://www.treasurydirect.gov/RI/OFNtebnd", Destination:=Range("$A$1"))
        .CommandType = 0
        .Name = "OFNtebnd"
        .FieldNames = True
        .RowNumbers = False
        .FillAdjacentFormulas = False
        .PreserveFormatting = True
        .RefreshOnFileOpen = False
        .BackgroundQuery = True
        .RefreshStyle = xlInsertDeleteCells
        .SavePassword = False
        .SaveData = True
        .AdjustColumnWidth = True
        .RefreshPeriod = 0
        .WebSelectionType = xlAllTables
        .WebFormatting = xlWebFormattingNone
        .WebPreFormattedTextToColumns = True
        .WebConsecutiveDelimitersAsOne = True
        .WebSingleBlockTextImport = False
        .WebDisableDateRecognition = False
        .WebDisableRedirections = False
        .Refresh BackgroundQuery:=False
    End With
End Sub

Does this work for you?

Am I missing a library reference?

try commenting out .CommandType = 0 and see if that works

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?

Thanks!

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.

Here is a an example
